Better brains to get back to the Garden with

I just discovered a great book and website, Brain Rules with the latest research on what makes brains strong -and weak. It confirms lots that I've said for years, including these quotes:
  1. Exercise increases oxygen flow into the brain
  2. There is no greater anti-brain environment than the classroom and cubicle.
  3. Our school system ignores the fact that every brain is wired differently.
  4. The brain is not capable of multi-tasking.
  5. Taking a nap might make you more productive.
  6. Stress damages virtually every kind of cognition that exists.
  7. Smell is unusually effective at evoking memory.
  8. Vision trumps all other senses.
  9. The desire to explore never leaves us despite the classrooms and cubicles we are stuffed into.

Black backgrounds are better for the earth, because monitors use less energy!
