Think better. Think healthier. Think green.
The human brain is incredibly complex, but neuroscientists are discovering a key to optimal brain health that's ancient and remarkably simple: immersion in nature. In this surprising survey of the latest scientific research, Eva Selhub, MD, and Alan Logan, ND, detail how the human brain is inextricably linked to the natural world, and how we can benefit from enhancing that connection.
Offering an antidote for the technology-addicted, Your Brain on Nature offers scientifically proven, nature-based methods for reducing your stress, improving your cognitive powers, and boosting the efficiency of your exercise. Selhub and Logan persuasively demonstrate that the human bond with nature is vital, from where our children play, to the food we eat, to our faithful animal companions.
A fascinating look at the effects that both nature and technology have on the brain's functioning and one's overall well-being, Your Brain on Nature delivers an urgent message about restoring health and balance in an increasingly IT-dependent world.
