Présentation de l'éditeur

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.

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? Is it true that men and women have different brains?

In Brain Rules, 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. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule—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. You’ll learn why Michael Jordan was no good at baseball. You’ll peer over a surgeon’s shoulder as he proves that most of us have a Jennifer Aniston neuron. You’ll meet a boy who has an amazing memory for music but can’t tie his own shoes.

You will discover how:

Every brain is wired differently
Exercise improves cognition
We are designed to never stop learning and exploring
Memories are volatile
Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn
Vision trumps all of the other senses
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.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Rule your brain; get it under your control 30 octobre 2014
Par Mobster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
One day upon hearing my instructor to say that try to read your mind, I felt much inquisitive about the fact, that how one can read the mind. I went to different online and offline libraries to get access to some good, yet understandable material about the brain and its functions in our daily life. Then I came across the book, which I eagerly needed. The book titled "Brain rules" is a careful collection of principles and guidelines, to make the reader more successful in managing and governing his mental activities and daily tasks. The step by step approach, followed by the author, takes the reader to move from chapter to chapter and enter to more concrete basic principles of brain and mind. The author has made the book lively by adding chunks of great sense of humor, to make the reader understand the complex brain science in a simpler and energetic way.

Once I read this book, I felt more eager to read more and more about human brains and mind activities. I started reading different blogs and research papers, but suggested by one of my instructors I started reading the book "Maximizing Brain Control : Unleash The Genius In You". The book is a must reading piece for all those who want to understand the distinctive functions of brain, its various parts and the role each part plays in our daily life. I learned various simple yet highly fruitful techniques to enhance my abilities of the brain control. The author is of the view that all of us must make deliberate efforts to uncover our brain potentials and utilize them for our well being.

The two books made a firm foundation of my knowledge regarding the human brain and its power. They helped me to self mentor, my intellectual and motor abilities by utilizing my conscious and unconscious minds. As suggested by the authors, I started analyzing my strengths in an in depth manner, in which my brain helped me a lot. If anyone of you asks me to recommend some good and expressive books on the topic of human brain, I will definitely go for these two books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoughtful, relevant, and applicable. 18 mai 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

As I read through this book I experienced a few emotions. The first is a sense of pride as I knew most of these, then that turned into shame as I was slightly off or a little misguided in my approach. Then hope and optimism.

Ultimately, it led me into revisiting my perception and belief of naps. I started doing self-experiments on naps and charting energy levels, along with creativity, and was completely surprised at the result. A 20 minute nap (no longer than 25 minutes!) was enough to recharge me in the afternoon. The way the information was laid out was approachable and easily adapted into daily life.

This book is not just informative and interesting, it also will call out the areas in which you can improve your own life.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I'm not a doctor or scientist but here is a 5 star book! 19 mai 2014
Par Keith Dworak - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone with a strong knowledge of how the brain works. If you perform brain surgery, then this is not the book for you!

However if you are like me, an average American that is just a little bit curious on how we do all the things that we do then this is certainly the book for you! It is an easy read yet it is still packed full of medical terminology. There are many aspects and idea's in this book that everyone should be able to work into their daily lives and better yourself. It is full of simple, easy to understand and comprehend analogies that will give you those "ah ha" moments.

Once you read this cover to cover you will want to purchase another copy for friends or family! This truly is a must read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A great overview of both findings in neuroscience as well as practical ways to apply them in everyday life 3 juillet 2014
Par Michael Schmatz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
John splits the book up into twelve different sections, each with findings in neuroscience, as well as how to apply those findings practically. These sections are

Survival: How our brain is a product of our evolution, and some traits it has adopted as a result
Exercise: How exercise improves our cognitive abilities and staves off dementia
Sleep: What the brain does during sleep, how people are biologically predisposed to various sleep patterns, and how to use naps to improve performance
Stress: The various biochemicals involved with stress and how to have less stressful relationships and life
Wiring: How neurons interact, develop, and function
Attention: How multitasking works (or doesn't work), the relationship between emotion and attention, and the need for relaxation to enhance focus
Memory: How memory formation works and the optimal way to remember things
Sensory Integration: How all of the senses work together to provide a cohesive experience, and how multiple senses can be utilized to improve learning
Vision: How vision trumps all of the other senses and can be used to create more effective presentations
Music: How music can cause improvements in cognition, be therapeutic, and how music training can improve cognition
Gender: Differences between the genders in physiology, socialization, emotional reactions, and memory.
Exploration: How the brain is constantly exploring and looking for novel things

A lot of reviewers have pointed out that many of the tips that John gives are common sense - that may be true. However, I found that knowing the neuroscience behind many of the things which John advocates ensures their adoption into day-to-day life.

Overall, a great read that has caused me to change the way I give presentations, how much I exercise and sleep, as well as how I interact with people.

If you are looking for a book that summarizes the start of brain research and training this is a great read. I use it as a reference guide and recommend it to all my doctors.
