Synopsis

Neuroscientists Aamodt and Wang illuminate how children's brains grow - and how they can be nurtured, scientifically, to reach their full potential. The authors investigate common child-rearing wisdom, exposing bad brain trainingA" products and the ways parents most influence a child's personality. They explain why playing outside improves vision, why teenagers stay up late, and why learning a second language increases empathy. And they share amusing experiments that will let every parent watch a child's grey matter at work. Filled with myth-busting facts and clever advice, this is an indispensable, entertaining guide to your child's brain.

About the Publisher

Oneworld

Oneworld

Oneworld was founded in 1986 by husband and wife team Juliet Mabey and Novin Doostdar as an independent publishing house focusing on stimulating non-fiction. Now publishing over 100 books a year, Oneworld has retained its founding commitment to the old-fashioned principles of great writing, editorial excellence, high production values, and marketing flair, to produce books that are read by the intellectually curious all over the world. Our fiction list showcases intelligent, challenging, and distinctive novels that sit at the intersection of the literary and the commercial: emotionally engaging stories with strong narratives and distinctive voices. In addition to being beautifully written, we hope our novels play their part in introducing the reader to a different culture or an interesting historical period/event, and deeply explore the human condition in all its vagaries. We aim to publish novels that matter, that stay with you long after the last page is turned.
