In Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina, a molecular biologist, shares his lifelong interest in how the brain sciences might influence the way we teach our children and the way we work. In each chapter, he describes a brain rule--what scientists know for sure about how our brains work--and then offers transformative ideas for our daily lives.Medina's fascinating stories and infectious sense of humor breathe life into brain science.

* Vision trumps all of the other senses

* Stress changes the way we learnIn the end, you'll understand how your brain really works--and how to get the most out of it.
