Brain Rules is the title of an excellent book. If your new to neuroscience of “brain science” this book is an excellent starting point. In a clear and funny way it explains complicated brain functions and their use in every day life. I read it with much pleasure. The author, John Medina uses entertaining examples and stories to substantiate the recent results of neuroscience research without loosing nuance.
How do we learn? What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains? Why is multi-tasking a myth? Why is it so easy to forget—and so important to repeat new knowledge?
You can buy the book with a DVD.
The Brain Rules DVD is a lively tour of the 12 Brain Rules. You will experience firsthand Medina’s rare gift for making science fun, accessible, and relevant. Watch the DVD as an introduction to the book.
