The brain is a fearsomely complex information-processing environment--one that often eludes our ability to understand it. At any given time, the brain is collecting, filtering, and analyzing information and, in response, performing countless intricate processes, some of which are automatic, some voluntary, some conscious, and some unconscious. And, it's squishy. Mind Hacks is a collection of probes into the moment-by-moment works of the brain. Using cognitive neuroscience, these experiments, tricks, and tips related to vision, motor skills, attention (we at ThinkGeek have very good attention spa…ooh, a butterfly), cognition, subliminal perception, and more throw light on how the human brain works. Each hack examines specific operations of the brain. By seeing how the brain responds, we pick up clues about the architecture and design of the brain, learning a little bit more about how the brain is put together. Among the 100 hacks in this book, you'll find: Release Eye Fixations for Faster Reactions See Movement When All is Still Feel the Presence and Loss of Attention Detect Sounds on the Margins of Certainty Mold Your Body Schema Test Your Handedness See a Person in Moving Lights Make Events Understandable as Cause-and-Effect Boost Memory by Using Context Understand Detail and the Limits of Attention

Lies They Teach in School
"So, you graduated top of your class. Well, good for you. No seriously, we're quite proud of you. But did you know that many things taught as ""facts"" in school are nothing but a pack of filthy lies? It's true. LIES!! Well, time to set your brain and education straight with Lies They Teach in School. You'll learn the truth behind many lies, such as: The United States did not vote for independence on July fourth. French fries did not originate in France. Cleopatra was not Egyptian. Charles Darwin didn't coin the phrase ""survival of the fittest."" And oh so much more! But it's not our teachers' faults. History is often written by the victors and also, like a time travelling game of telephone, it gets distorted as it's told and retold. Lies They Teach in School explore those things we accept as history that either never happened or didn't happen the way we were told they did. Such items are taught in schools. But they are wrong. Touching on a number of topics (including history, current events, government, sports, geography, and popular culture), Lies They Teach in School exposes errors that have been perpetuated for far too long. It will certainly start a number of arguments, and settle a few others."
