    These are twenty four lectures about neuroscience structured to focus on popular understandings of the way our brains work The title of Brain Myths Exploded is a bit of hyperbole to capture the attention of the audience, but in reality it is addressing widely held perceptions that are oversimplifications In most cases the so called myths are factoids based on a kernel of truth whereas reality iscomplicated It s not that the myths are untrue they re incomplete truths that sometimes can These are twenty four lectures about neuroscience structured to focus on popular understandings of the way our brains work The title of Brain Myths Exploded is a bit of hyperbole to capture the attention of the audience, but in reality it is addressing widely held perceptions that are oversimplifications In most cases the so called myths are factoids based on a kernel of truth whereas reality iscomplicated It s not that the myths are untrue they re incomplete truths that sometimes can be misleading to correct understanding.Of the questions examined by the lectures, the one that bothers me the most is Lecture 6 that says memories are not necessarily very accurat...

    An informed look at brain myths from right and left brains to supplements for added brain power Twenty four lessons each taking up one myth Although not cutting edge hard science this course provides an abundance of information to the layperson It is easy to follow and well explained.

    This is another take on advances in modern brain science Viskontas approach is to start each chapter with a popular myth about the brain, for instance the idea that we use only 10% of our brains, and then give us an overview of what current neuroscience tells us about this particular myth This is Great Courses offering, so it s in the form of two dozen lectures, each under an hour Viskontas is a lively lecturer, who tells stories, and weaves in personal background where it s enlighten...

    This is a pretty good overview of neuroscience, specifically through taking common misperceptions about the brain, showing how they re not true or not fully true, and explaining the systems behind them It never gets very advanced, but is a good int...

    Pretty good recap of items you can get in other books Predictably irrational, Blink, Memory Illusion , but I liked the format and it was a good reminder of the subject matter.About the only minor complaint is that the author name drops a bit My good friend Dr XYZ.
