Brain Rules!!

If you go here, you can check out some brain rules.  I’ve read the book and it’s a very fast read.  I’ll also include it on my blogroll.

The point behind all this is that we have an idea how the brain works.  Thus, we should take advantage of those rules.  For example, out of all the senses that helps us with memory the most is vision.  Thus, the author recommends that when people do powerpoints, they should include a lot more pictures and a lot less text.  He has some really great ideas pertaining to exercise as well.

Go to the website, then click on “The Rules” on the left-hand side.  Or just explore around.  It’s a great site.

About shaunmiller

I have just completed a visiting position as an assistant professor at Dalhousie University. My ideas are not associated with my employer; they are expressions of my own thoughts and ideas. Some of them are just musings while others could be serious discussions that could turn into a bigger project. Besides philosophy, I enjoy martial arts (Kuk Sool Won), playing my violin, enjoying coffee around town, and experimenting with new food.
