Delving into the latest science, this book and these DVDs go even deeper to reveal the brain's inner workings and recent discoveries of neuroscience.
Did you know that listening to music tunes up your brain? Or that certain foods can help maintain mental fitness? Or that exercise can keep both body and mind in good shape? Delving into the science behind these strategies, Brain: The Complete Mind goes even deeper to reveal the brain's inner workings. Overseen by distinguished neuropsychiatrist Dr. Richard Restak, Brain is both a practical owner's manual and a complete guide to the brain's development and function.
Featuring programs from hit series Brain Games, Duck Quacks Don’t Echo, and The Numbers Game, the National Geographic Engage Your Brain Collection combines science and entertaining, interactive experiments and games to reveal the amazing inner-workings of the "crown jewel" of the human body.
While the Emmy-nominated Brain Games sizes up the human brain through mind-boggling experiments, optical illusions, and brainteasers, Duck Quacks Don’t Echo assesses the validity of weird, unusual and over-the-top hypotheses through a series of interactive, original scientific tests. The Numbers Game looks at how science and statistics may hold the keys to a longer, wealthier, calmer life.
Includes all of Brain Games Season 1 (three episodes), The Numbers Game Season 1 (three episodes), and Duck Quacks Don’t Echo (fourteen episodes).
