At the heart of cognitive enhancement is the study of the brain as a whole.

Here we cover topics that answer the question "How does this work?"  Things like memory, neurotransmitters, and what goes on inside aging brains.

Otherwise, scroll down and enjoy...

neural recovery

We’re fascinated by the science behind brain tissue regeneration.

We need food to survive. Can we really be “addicted” to something required for survival?

Music and the Brain

Music is something beloved of people everywhere — or at least, 98% of them (no joke – details within). Not surprisingly, music can provoke complex brain responses, both in terms of short term emotion and long-term learning and perceptual awareness. Join doctors Robert Zatorre and Assal Habibi to learn more from the cutting edge of neuroscience and musicology.

How much of intelligence is inherited?

When it comes to intelligence, which is more important: nature or nurture?

Lead toxicity

Jesse talks with Dr. David Bellinger about the mechanisms by which lead lowers IQ, and the challenges (and opportunities) of finding a lasting solution to environmental lead exposure.

Lithium

Lithium has long been a standard treatment for mania and Bipolar Disorder. But this might be only the tip of an iceberg of usefulness to human brains and bodies. Dr. De-Maw Chuang explains.

It’s a two-for-one: Dr. Martin Monti and Dr. Kathleen Bell talk to us about the nature of traumatic brain injuries, when it’s a “no brainer” to go see a doctor, and how to create a brain resilient to injury.

white noise and focus

Where do you go to get focused work done? Library? Busy coffee shop? Noisy environments are actually better for focus, but only for certain people.

You probably ate something toxic today. But don’t panic! It was actually good for you.
