Not everyone is a brain surgeon, rocket scientist or Ph.D, but everyone can read Tips and Tales from the Tantalizing World of Brain Science. Brain science is fascinating and much of it is useful. That's where the focus on this book lies. Here are just a few of the Tips revealed in the book: the ultimate iPhone app for improved cognitive performance; why you should sleep in a hammock; a spice from India that quickly benefits stroke patients; the best exercise to keep seniors cognitively young; a computer game that raises self-esteem; a simple way to grow grey matter in your brain; three ways for students to excel, and a workout that improves memory. The Tales include: who is the ‘Sherlock Holmes’ of brain plasticity? How did magic tricks help a man nearly destroyed by drug addiction and brain injury? And what actually helped the molecular biologist who couldn’t figure out whether it was more important to pay her bills or do her nails! The book also reveals some fascinating research on the science-proven benefits of mindfulness meditation – one sure way to a better (and bigger) brain!
