About the Product

More than 2 decades ago, in the first three days of January 1997, two hundred million internet hits were made to follow the progress of a space probe to Mars. Your brain makes fifteen times as many new connections in one second as the world’s internet users made back then in three days.

We now know that every new learning forms new connections in the brain, and strengthens old connections. We now know that each one of your brain cells is many times more powerful than the most powerful computer ever invented.

Each one of these cells connects to hundreds of thousands of other cells which, in turn, shuttle information back and forth between tens of thousands of others. Each cell, or neuron is capable of making more than twenty thousand connections with other cells.

The 10 titles in the building better brain resources ‘for the young and the young at heart’ will explain more about the workings of your brain and the many and varied thought-provoking activities will help to build a better brain.
