A “Must-Read” Article On Increasing Intelligence

| 1 Comment

One of the most popular posts I’ve written, and one of favorite class lessons, is about “brain being like a muscle” (see “Now I Know My Brain Is Growing When I Read Every Night”). I also write more extensively about this in my upcoming book.

Today, Scientific American published a “must-read” article titled “You can increase your intelligence: 5 ways to maximize your cognitive potential.” It contains a wealth of information and useful ideas that I plan to add to my brain lesson (I’ll share my revised lesson in this blog).

It’s fairly lengthy, and I haven’t had a chance to look over it very carefully yet. But, trust me, it’s worth a visit…

  1. Today’s NOR story on IQ reminded me of your brain as muscle lesson (which I love!!! Big Thanks for it – kids like it too.) 4-5 minutes – http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2011/10/20/141511314/iq-isnt-set-in-stone-suggests-study-that-finds-big-jumps-dips-in-teens Based on British Journal of Nature article I believe.
