The most powerful, most staggeringly complex machine ever created is all in your head. Our brain is the most adaptable, modifiable organ in our body, and yet it is the organ we most likely give the least attention.

In the past five years brain scientists have discovered much more about how the brain works, including that it can be trained to perform better than ever before.
