Abstract:

One of the world's most innovative and respected cognitive neuroscientists combines the latest scientific discoveries with unique tests and exercises to improve readers' brainpower for life.

The most powerful, most staggeringly complex machine ever created is all in your head. Our brain is the most adaptable, modifiable organ in our body, and yet it is the organ we most likely give the least attention. Many individuals who are concerned with having a physically fit body stop their "workout" at the neck. In the past five years brain scientists have discovered much more about how the brain works, including that it can be trained to perform better than ever before. You are never too young or too old to adopt healthy brain habits that strengthen the brain's capacity to think smarter. In Make Your Brain Smarter, renowned cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman introduces you to the very latest research in brain science and shows you how to tailor a program to fit your own needs. In this all-inclusive book, Dr. Chapman delivers a comprehensive "fitness" plan that you can use to "exercise" your way to a healthier brain. You will find scientifically proven strategies to train deep, insightful, and strategic thinking. You will discover why memory is not the most important measure of brain function, why IQ is an outdated, misleading index of brain potential, and how to become a higher brain performer.
