Overview

Have you ever wondered what makes your brain tick? Why do you think more clearly after a good night's rest? Why does exercise improve your mood and focus? Why can't you concentrate when you're stressed?

John Medina is a developmental molecular biologist, mental health researcher, and bestselling author. In Brain Rules: 12 Principles for Surviving and Thriving at Work, Home, and School, Medina explains how the brain works. He explores how the Homo sapien brain evolved and how we can best use our brains in modern conditions that are very different from the environments where our species originated. You will learn how we focus, remember, and experience sense information and about our brains' ability to explore.

"The brain appears to be designed to 1, solve problems, 2, related to surviving, 3, in an unstable outdoor environment, and 4, to do so in nearly constant motion." [John Medina]
