This September, we've got a new book coming out -- Welcome To Your Brain: How The Mind Grows From Conception To College. Based on reading close to a thousand technical papers and analyzing the state of developmental neuroscience and psychology, we ended up finding out a lot that will interest -- and reassure -- parents. If you have a kid, or remember being one yourself, we hope this book will be for you.
Here's what some others have to say about the book:
"Dr. Wang and Dr. Aamodt playfully and engagingly introduce us to the hidden talents of our children's brains." — Mehmet Oz, M.D., Host of "The Dr. Oz Show"
"Fact-filled and fascinating, Welcome to Your Child’s Brain will answer many of parents’ most urgent questions. Neuroscientists Sandra Aamodt and Sam Wang present the real data that will help parents understand and nurture their children of all ages." — Lise Eliot, Ph.D., author of What’s Going On in There? and Pink Brain, Blue Brain
"Few humans are as neurotic as parents, frantic about the disastrous lifelong consequences of every errant hiccup. In this smart, funny, accessible and supremely sane book, Aamodt and Wang teach us that our supposed knowledge in this realm is riddled with urban myths and that a child's brain is tough and resilient in the face of adversity. This is a terrific, fun, educational book."- Robert Sapolsky, Ph.D., author of Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers
