Optimizing Brain Fitness - Saeed Ahmed quick post

Hi Anne
I wanted to draw your attention to this:

Dr. Richard Restak is a neuroscientist who, for several decades, has been writing about the brain and its function for the layperson.

Now, he has put together a course for the Teaching Company, and one of his lectures is available for free for 7 days, and available here: Optimizing Brain Fitness.

Of course, the Teaching Company would like people to view this with the hope they would buy the course, but after viewing this myself, I think it is quite good standing alone, as a general but very accurate introduction to the brain, free of jargon and details that is common in many, even introductory, university courses.

The free 30 minute video lecture is available until August 8.
