Dr. Caroline Leaf is a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist
specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology. Since the early
1980s she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health,
and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the
brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input. During her years in
clinical practice she worked with many people who struggled with Traumatic Brain
Injury (TBI), Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE), learning disabilities (ADD,
ADHD), autism, dementias and mental ill-health issues like anxiety and depression.
Dr. Leaf is also the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn
Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more. She teaches at
academic, medical and neuroscience conferences, churches, and to various
audiences around the world. She is also part of the mental health initiative
in Washington, DC. Dr. Leaf is currently conducting ongoing clinical trials
using the 5-step program she developed while in private practice to further
demonstrate the effectiveness of mind-directed techniques to help relieve
mental ill-health problems such as anxiety, depression and intrusive thoughts.
