Most of us have no idea what’s really going on inside our heads. Yet brain scientists have uncovered details every business leader, parent, and teacher should know—like the need for physical activity to get your brain working its best. What exactly do sleep and stress do to our brains?
In this important discussion, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. Here are brain rules about what scientists know for sure about how our brains work—and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives.
Medina’s fascinating stories and infectious sense of humor breathe life into brain science. Participants will discover how:
Every brain is wired differently
Exercise improves cognition
Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn
Stress changes the way we learn
In the end, you’ll understand how your brain really works—and how to get the most out of it.
