Chicken Soup for the Soul: Boost Your Brain Power!
â€œItâ€™s the heart.â€
â€œItâ€™s the brain.â€
â€œNo, itâ€™s the heart!â€
â€œDarling, I KNOW itâ€™s the BRAIN!â€
My husband and I often have a passionate argument about which organ in the body is the most important. Heâ€™s an internist and insists itâ€™s the heart. If the heart isnâ€™t working, he claims, blood doesnâ€™t circulate, your cells donâ€™t receive oxygen and pretty soon nothing else is working either. As a neurologist, I of course, have no doubt itâ€™s the brain. After all, your brain is your very essence â€” itâ€™s what makes you who you are. If your brain isnâ€™t functioning, then whatâ€™s the point? Every once in a while I get him to concede Iâ€™m right.
Your brain is a marvel and your most precious possession. Weighing in at just three pounds, it is home to more than one hundred billion neurons interconnected by one hundred trillion synapses, giving rise to your consciousness and your every thought, mood and action. Modern neuroscience research has changed our perception of the brain dramatically. One of the breakthroughs I find most fascinating is our new understanding of the brainâ€™s ability to redesign itself. We used to think the brain was static but now recognize that it is incredibly dynamic and constantly evolving. Like a work of art in progress, itâ€™s continuously shaped and transformed by experiences and the way it is cared for. No matter your age or your past, itâ€™s never too late to take advantage of this remarkable ability.
I canâ€™t think of a better way to highlight the potential of the human brain than by pairing stories of innovative individuals creatively using their minds with straightforward scientific explanations of whatâ€™s taking place in their brains. As the stories so eloquently illustrate, itâ€™s possible to change the direction of thoughts, emotions and behaviors, which in turn may transform a moment, a day â€” or even an entire life. It is thrilling to share with you the explanations of the exciting neuroscience that allows this to happen.
As you read this book, I hope the stories as well as the captivating science inspire you to do more with your brain. Every one of us is capable of reaching our potential. And with no disrespect to the heart or any of the other organs, what better tool to help you get there than your wonderful, amazing brain?
