Smarter: The New Science of Building Brain Power

Smarter: The Science of Building Brain Power – Dan Hurley

Dan Hurley tried to hack his intelligence Tim Ferriss style: exploring the latest research and subjecting himself to treatments. The final result was disappointing, but the individual research studies and their findings were quite interesting. His testing tools were Mensa IQ exams before & after which resulted in only a 1 point increase, and also a fMRI scan.

He ultimately decided to try these 7 techniques: exercise, dual n-back, luminosity, nicotine patches, trans-cranial direct current stimulation (brain zapping), learning a new musical instrument, and mindful meditation.
