What can be said?
Questions that scratched the brain
Have these studies that are studied in the book all performed in america? If not how big of a difference would it make and how do we know that? (Most likely a large link to sociology)
Medina says that we get new information about newborn brains every year, how do we get this knowledge and how useful is the information we have if it is always changing?
Is John Medina himself an active follower of his own rules or does he just study them?
Following that, how much has his life changed (or anyone who tries all the rules) in his work and home, if he is following what he is saying?
How much of this book is bias even though a ton of studies were done to help write it and prove the points?
Is it okay that I think some of the rules were hard to tie to my everyday life, and there were other ones that I would have added to help people improve their brain instead of understand it?
Does the complexity of all the rules change as we get older or how does it work when we are little to when our brain is as sharp as it will ever be?
- Is there a way I can tie this into a classroom without it seeming like I am conducting science experiments and am actually working it into the curriculum to help the students?
