Your Superstar Brain

Kaja Nordengen
Authors:
Kaja Nordengen

Why does the brain work the way it does? Can you eat 'brain food' to remember better? Can the brain be retrained? Can you activate the parts of the brain you don't use? Can you smile yourself to happiness?This is a book about all the secrets of your most incredible organ. Your brain makes you who you are. It learns, falls in love and interprets complex patterns. But it also causes you to make bad decisions and rewards addiction. Join neurologist Kaja Nordengen in her fascinating journey through the many unexplored territories of the human brain. Divided into thirteen short chapters, the book describes how the brain works - both how it's physically constructed with nerves, synapses and cerebral cortex, but also how it functions on a more abstract level - everything from what happens when we fall in love to where we find our sense of self.
