Brain Rules Book Study

5 Stripes

“In Brain Rules, molecular biologist John Medina shares his lifelong interest in how 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.

You will discover how:

Exercise improves cognition

Every brain is wired differently

We are designed never to stop learning and exploring

Memories are volatile and susceptible to corruption

Sleep is powerfully linked with the ability to learn

Vision trumps all 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.
