amazon_kindleAs a book co-author it is always a plea­sure, and a sur­prise, to see what read­ers find most inter­est­ing and note­wor­thy. A fea­ture in Ama­zon’s Kin­dle e‑reader allows read­ers to high­light and share their favorite sentences .

These are the 5 Most High­light­ed Quotes in The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness: How to Opti­mize Brain Health and Per­for­mance at Any Age (so far):

  1. Emo­tion is the sys­tem that tells us how impor­tant some­thing is. Atten­tion focus­es us on the impor­tant and away from the unim­por­tant things. Cog­ni­tion tells us what to do about it. Cog­ni­tive skills are what­ev­er it takes to do those things.” (25 Highlighters)
  2. Work­ing mem­o­ry is the type of mem­o­ry that allows us to both hold infor­ma­tion in mind and work on it as need­ed.” (22 Highlighters)
  3. First, the more a net­work of neu­rons is acti­vat­ed (i.e., the more often the neu­rons fire togeth­er), the stronger the con­nec­tions become.” (21 Highlighters)
  4. Since human atten­tion is lim­it­ed, try­ing to divide it between too many tasks nec­es­sar­i­ly results in per­for­mance errors.” (17 Highlighters)
  5. Con­trol­ling and man­ag­ing emo­tion (includ­ing stress and anger) is cru­cial for per­form­ing suc­cess­ful­ly in any­thing.” (17 Highlighters)
