Science states that the brain begins to mature even before birth and continues to evolve throughout most of one’s life. Scientists also say that the brain’s rate of maturity varies from person to person. However, scientists and psychologists are far from being able to define all of the brain’s functions or explain how they correspond to the body and to our behaviors.
There is a plethora of books, videos, lecture groups, classes, and other media that claim to describe how the brain functions and provide essential methods for optimizing brain functions. However, some of these methods contradict other published methods, for example about certain foods to eat, exercises, positive thoughts, ways to enhance children’s learning, and so on. Whether based on research, neuroscientific experiments, or other people’s personal experiences, it all can seem confusing and often overwhelming.
