Portada_ComoInvertirEnSuCerebroTime for SharpBrains’ February e-Newsletter, this time featuring the global launch of our new book, in Spanish, Cómo invertir en su cerebro: Una guía Sharp­Brains para mejo­rar su mente y su vida, available already as a soft-cover and e-book!

–> If you speak Spanish, please get a copy for yourself. También puede ver el video de la charla de presentación aquí (comienza en el minuto 5), y leer el artículo Esculpir el cerebro, mucho más allá de un sueño de Ramón y Cajal.

–> If you don’t speak Spanish, please share this with someone who does…we believe he or she will love the book! We’ve been working quite hard over the last year to deliver a great adaptation of The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness to “la lengua de Cervantes” — the jury is now out.

Update: A Fresh Look at Enhancing Brain & Mental Health Across the Lifespan

kid brainTime for SharpBrains’ May 2013 e-newsletter, which features a variety of articles offering a more optimistic and evidence-based approach to brain and mental health than current practices.

First of all, let us highlight that Scientific American just published an excellent review of our new book. The author sums it up by saying that “…I wish I had read this awesome guide when I was much younger…I find the emerging field of neuroplasticity immensely exciting, and guides like this one are both hopeful and reasonable.” As a reader points out, the word “awesome” does not appear often in science-oriented publications…so we are especially proud to see the book merit such treatment.

That’s it for now. Have a stimulating June!
