Finished Reading Brain Rules

Finished reading Brain Rules by John Medina. Brain Rules focuses on the contemporary business buzzword multitasking. In a chapter on attention Medina, a developmental molecular biologist, shows how the brain can really only focus on one thing at a time. Medina presents reputable principles on how the brain works and what we can do to benefit our home and work life. He shows how our visual sense trumps all other senses. John Medina says that we don’t sleep to give our brain a rest. He highlights studies that show our neurons furiously firing while we sleep. Although we indeed lose brain cells as we age, our brain compensates so we can keep learning as we age.

John Medina employs an engaging style of writing and excellent suggestions on how to apply his principles. I enjoyed Brain Rules; I’m fascinated by cognitive psychology. I would recommend Brain Rules to anyone interested in neural development.

I began programming in C++ when I was in college. Odd for a business major, but hey I am a Dork. After college I got a job as System Administrator. As a System Administrator I was in charge of web administration. My journey as a PHP web developer had begun. Since that time I have gained an in depth knowledge of CSS, Javascript, XML and MySQL. With changes and advances to technology I have also began learning AJAX. I started Blue Fire Development to do freelance work in my spare time.
