"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

From the book, 'The Sharp Brains Guide to Brain Fitness', comes this interesting debunking exposition on myths pertaining to brain health & brain training.

A quick one:

Myth 1. Genes determine the fate of our brains.

Myth 2. Aging means automatic decline.

Myth 3. Medication is the main hope for cognitive enhancement.

Myth 4. We will soon have a Magic Pill or General Solution to solve all our cognitive challenges.

Myth 5. There is only one “it” in “Use It or Lose it”.

Myth 6. All brain activities or exercises are equal.

Myth 7. There is only one way to train your brain.

Myth 8. We all have something called “Brain Age”.

Myth 9. That “brain age” can be reversed by 10, 20, 30 years.

Myth 10. All human brains need the same brain training.
