NERUOPLASTICITY–the limitless potential of the human brain to rewire itself–is one of the most hopeful discoveries of our generation.

Thanks to an absolute explosion of research in this field over the past decade, scientists now know more than ever before about how the brain changes and why, and how we can work with our nervous system to unlock our potential.

But how do we get the science out of the lab and into our lives? Who has time to comb through stacks of research, decipher what it means, and figure out how to actually use it?

The Brain Science Advantage does just that. It’s a comprehensive overview of all of the latest brain and behavioral science–a distillation of hundreds of books and thousands of scientific papers into practical, actionable, and easy-to-understand tools and strategies that will supercharge your coaching practice.

Never before has the most cutting-edge science been so accessible!


The Brain Science Advantage is a comprehensive overview of the latest brain and behavioral science, presented as a combination of on-demand sessions, live sessions, exercises, and optional readings.

You'll join a cohort that meets at a scheduled time once per week. All other coursework will be completed on your own time.

The course consists of four modules:

  • Habits
  • Productivity
  • Overcoming Fear
  • Happiness

Each module takes two weeks to complete. You should plan to devote a total of 5 hours per week to the course.

James Garrett lives and breathes neuroplasticity. "I've spent the past 22 years pursuing my fascination with the brain and have gone on some wild adventures trying to understand the outer limits of human potential. I’ve studied, searched, unearthed, unpacked; and relentlessly experimented with this question in my own life."

As a researcher, James spent years working with some of the world's best psychologists in labs at Columbia, Tufts, and Yale Universities, but ultimately left academia to pursue his passion for getting the science of behavior change out of the lab and into people’s lives.

He began by joining the Peace Corps with his wife, Shaylyn Romney Garrett, and together they created an award-winning Arabic language curriculum to teach Carol Dweck's Mindset research to Jordanian youth. Through their nonprofit, Think Unlimited, they partnered with Her Majesty Queen Rania Al-Abdullah to train Jordanian public school teachers to implement the first brain-based positive psychology curriculum in the Middle East.

Upon returning to the U.S., James founded Brain by Design and began teaching courses and coaching individuals on how to use the most cutting-edge brain science to achieve their goals. He has coached hundreds of client--from struggling teens to stressed-out executive--trained thousands of coaches, consulted for top companies, and spoken to audiences worldwide. His broad expertise in behavior change spans multiple disciplines, and his passion for unlocking human potential is infectious.

James's knowledge of what it looks and feels like to create lasting change is also deeply personal. Having struggled with OCD since childhood, for James, the idea that the brain could rewire itself was a lifeline, and his deep dive into neuroscience became a healing journey that animates and informs everything he does today. In 2019 he launched the Deep Change Project, a quest to build unshakeable confidence and overcome fear through experimentation with exciting new technologies, ancient mindfulness practices, and a wide array of evidence-based tools.

"I am awed and inspired by the beauty and resilience of the human brain. And I have really wrestled personally with what it means to apply the most cutting-edge brain science to improve mental health, overcome adversity, enhance performance, and unlock the potential of individuals and groups. I absolutely love sharing the hopeful message of neuroplasticity--that we’re not condemned to live within the neurological limits of our birth."
