The human brain is such a very interesting subject to study. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to learn about the inner workings of the brain without going through the scientific jargons.
On the other hand, it is also hard to be too trusting about what others say about the brain.
For example, many people claim that Lumosity helps prevent dementia. Others say omega-3 fatty acids boost brain health.
It’s not that there is no truth to these claims. But, non-scientific websites offer very little information to make these claims completely make sense to non-scientist audience.
This is when listening to Brain Science podcast will prove to be very helpful. Each topic is discussed by an expert and everything is based on their research.
You can rest assured that all the information presented here is based from scientific studies.
