Good week to you New Mavericks!

In my last talk we discussed the responsibility of a New Maverick to be an avid reader; to pull from the wisdom of the species to enhance our understanding of the world. This week we acknowledge the limits of knowledge without action and skill sets building.

Talent is Built through Strengthening Brain Connections

After lacing up my hockey skates for the first time in two years, I was reminded that the brain builds long-lasting connections that can last a lifetime. A recent book called “The Talent Code” reminds us that talent is built through strengthening these connections. Also, by trial and error we become personal scientists, verifying the true nature of reality as we build our individual skill sets.

Time to roll up my sleeves and get to work on my skill set of shooting with another New Mavericks vid! from: el Cody Rall.


About Cody Rall

Physician & Brain Researcher Cody developed a healthy respect for the natural world as a youth raised in Alaska. In his teenage years, he would spend weeks in the Alaskan wilderness with his father, hunting moose and other big-game animals. Cody later developed a preference to photograph wildlife and study the world through science. As an undergraduate, he worked with model organisms in a molecular genetics laboratory, experimenting with DNA expression. At the same time, Cody was learning about health and fitness by competing in bodybuilding shows. Through modifying his own body with exercise and diet, Cody developed first- hand, invaluable insight towards human physiology. He then attended medical school in Chicago, IL to combine his passion for science, health and people. During his medical school studies, Cody found new passion in the brain sciences.
