  • "Turbocharging the Brain"

    0 of 0 helpful votes
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it was interesting and I caught several of the points.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The different affect of drugs on the brain of different people. How some drugs affect people with lower intelligence but do not of higher brain function. Some of the technical jargon was a little over my head or the actual drug names so that was less interesting.


    Did Mark Moran do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    n/a


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, once I started it, it was best listened to in one sitting.

    Studying how the mind and brain work sounds like it ought to be about as futile as trying to grab handfuls of air. Yet psychology, neuroscience and related fields have made amazing progress. This special issue of Scientific American reviews just a sliver of the discoveries that investigators from around the globe have made about the workings of our inner lives. The breadth of subjects tracks the vastness of thought.

Also, we'll learn about a mental breakdown that causes apathy so extreme it could become deadly, as well as Capgras syndrome, a perception disorder that causes people to think their loved ones have been replaced by extraterrestrial body doubles.

    The cover story reveals how painful, long-term memories might actually be erased with the use of drugs at just the right moment. Then, an article that asks a provocative question - can we cure fear? Following that, it's an examination of anger -- should you control your emotions or let them rip? Next, it's a look at the persistence of myths -- and their connection to the brain's biological needs. Our fifth article seeks to explode one myth -- about the value of self-esteem.

    Reading the cracked brown fragments of fossils and sequences of DNA, scientists have found clues that the story of human origins has more convolutions than previously thought. The account of our shared human heritage now includes more controversial plot twists and mysteries. Was the remarkable seven-million-year-old skull found in July 2002 in Chad really one of our first forebears, or a distant dead-end cousin with precociously evolved features?
