Your Child's Growing Mind :
A Guide to Learning and Brain Development from Birth to Adolescence

By Jane M. Healy, Ph.D

* Average Customer Review - 5 Stars
* Price - US$11.20

This book became an instant classic when it was published in 1987, and has been a cornerstone for educators ever since. Now revised and updated to reflect recent findings in brain research, this book guides parents, teachers, and caregivers as they gauge the level of development of an individual child's brain.


Endangered Minds :
Why Children Don't Think And What We Can Do About It

By Jane M. Healy, Ph.D

* Average Customer Review - 4 Stars
* Price - US$11.20

Dr. Healy, examines how television, video games, and other components of popular culture compromise our children's ability to concentrate and to absorb and analyze information. Drawing on neuropsychological research and an analysis of current educational practices, Healy presents in clear, understandable language:

  • How growing brains are physically shaped by experience

  • Why television programs -- even supposedly educational shows like Sesame Street -- develop "habits of mind" that place children at a disadvantage in school

  • Why increasing numbers of children are diagnosed with attention deficit disorder

  • How parents and teachers can make a critical difference by making children good learners from the day they are born

These data suggest that even low levels of lead may affect intelligence and that more children may be at risk for lead poisoning than previously thought. 


The Omega Wave
BBCi

Fish oils are supposed to boost our brainpower. But do the facts really stack up? We went in search of the evidence.

Elliot Best is nine years old. A year ago, Elliot was falling behind in his schoolwork, particularly reading – which he found a struggle. He had little interest in studying and would crash on the sofa to watch TV when he got home from school.

But over the past year, a dramatic change has taken place in Elliot. He has soared through the Harry Potter books and now heads to the library after the school bell has sounded. Continue here.......
