BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks (Paperback)
While many people wonder what the pervasive use of technology is doing to our brains, "Brain Power: From Neurons to Networks" asks a bigger question: Can cutting-edge neurological research into the way a child’s brain matures teach us anything about how we develop the "global brain” of the Internet? Can we share lessons between neurons and networks in the way we develop both? This book was created in conjunction with a 10-minute film by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Tiffany Shlain, also titled "Brain Power," which uses an innovative, participatory filmmaking process that Shlain and her team pioneered called “Cloud Filmmaking.” The TED Book expands on the ideas in the film by following the lines of the script and sharing deeper research, videos, graphics, and links that explore this cutting-edge neuroscience research, propose ideas of mindful use of technology, and compare the two to help us make each stronger. This release marks the first time a film and TED Book have been released simultaneously.
