The Plastic Mind by Sharon Begley

Show all

I keep finding myself referring people to The Plastic Mind by Sharon Begley and thought others reading this would also value flicking through this book to get a great introduction to the world of applied neuroscience.

It gives a thorough walk through of where current understanding about the brain has come from and highlights the fantastic insights that are being discovered by putting monks/people who have spent thousands of hours in their lives meditating into FMRI Brain scanners. The book talks through the meeting of the Dalai Lama and top neuroscientists to help bring forward practical understanding of how the brain operates . It takes these insights and puts forward ways others can benefits from being more aware of their brains and increase their thinking about their thinking. Great book, I hope you agree.
