'This is a fascinating book by a leading researcher, covering one of the most exciting areas of modern nutritional research about how our diet can impact our gut and brain health. The combination of personal stories and cutting-edge science is a real winner' DR MICHAEL MOSLEY, AUTHOR AND TV PRESENTER A combination of Professor Felice Jacka's love of food and her own experience of depression and anxiety as a young woman led her to question whether what we put in our mouths everyday affects more than our waistline. Felice set out on a journey of discovery to change the status quo and uncover the truth through rigorous science. Beginning her PhD in 2005, she examined the association between women's diets and their mental health, focusing on depression and anxiety. She soon discovered - you feel how you eat. It is Professor Jacka's ground-breaking research that has now changed the way we think about mental and brain health in relation to diet. Brain Changer explains how and why we should consider our food as the basis of our mental and brain health throughout our lives. It includes a selection of recipes and meal plans featuring ingredients beneficial to mental health. It also includes the simple, practical solutions we can use to help prevent mental health problems in the first place and offers strategies for treating these problems if they do arise. This is not a diet book to help you on the weight scales. This is a guide to good habits to save your brain and to optimise your mental health through what you eat at every stage of life.

According to some neuroscientists, the reason the brain's hippocampus is so
important to brain changing is because the hippocampus is considered the only
part of the learning brain where neurons regenerate or make new neurons.

Brain Changers: The Most Important Advances in Children’s Learning and Intelligence represents my second book of The Brain Smart Trilogy. This book presents an in-depth look at successful learning techniques and current brain research about how to increase children’s learning potential at all age levels. In my opinion, the words brain changing supports an often-ignored, yet obvious concept that children learn best when they are interested or passionate about learning. Our brain’s limbic system knows this when it forms emotional connections or attachment (bonding) to learning. For example, a major area of our brain associated with the brain changing concept is called the hippocampus. In fact, the hippocampus is the only part of your child’s learning brain where neurons regenerate or make more neurons. The medical world connects this positive brain changing experience and calls it brain plasticity or the brain’s ability to modify its connections or rewire itself. Studies show that without this ability, any brain, not just the human brain, would be unable to develop from infancy to adulthood. In my opinion, this book’s information provides readers with up-to-date brain research and proven learning techniques to support my brain changing thesis for all individuals interested in helping children reach high levels of learning.

Every day, we’re faced with choices about what to eat, wear, and purchase. Blinded by a tsunami of information—some good, some bad, some intentionally misleading—often our brains are too overwhelmed to examine all the details. So how do we know we’re making the best decisions for us? Author and science journalist David DiSalvo asks what’s best for our brains instead. The Brain in Your Kitchen sifts through the good and bad information on the things we buy, the foods we eat, and the medicines we take. Using findings from cutting-edge science, DiSalvo divulges terrifically useful and little-known facts—each grounded in credible research—about everything from how gluten to cats affect your brain. Learn how we can trick our minds into helping us lose weight, what placebos are costing us big bucks with no results, and what caffeine is actually doing inside your head to give you that extra pep. Disalvo cuts through frantic media sensation and consumer marketplace babble and gives you the knowledge to distinguish hyperbole from truth so you’re ready next time you sit down for dinner.

“Phantoms is gruesome and unrelenting…It’s well realized, intelligent, and humane.”—Stephen King They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body, strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California. At first they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease. But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined...
