Einstein Factor New research suggests that the
superior achievements of famous thinkers may have
been more the result of mental conditioning than genetic
superiority. Now you can learn to condition your mind
in the same way and improve your performance in virtually
all aspects of mental ability, including memory, quickness,
IQ, and learning capacity.

A study by Dr. Alan Hirsch of the Smell and Taste Treatment
and Research Foundation in Chicago indicates learning
speed can be increased by as much as 17 percent when
smell is introduced into a room. Floral smells are the
best. He’s not sure of the exact mechanism, "but we
have some theories." But however it’s done, Dr. Hirsch
says, scent "can improve memory, and it appears odors
can enhance learning and memory ability."

ginkgo biloba, the herb that now generates more than
$240 million in sales a year worldwide. The October
22-29, 1997 issue of the Journal of the American Medical
Association reported that Alzheimer's patients who
took 120 mg of ginkgo showed small improvements in
tests designed to measure mental performance.
its popularity, however, there's no solid evidence
that ginkgo can help healthy people concentrate or
remember more clearly. Also, because ginkgo thins
the blood, some scientists are concerned that taking
too much of it could prolong bleeding, or even cause
bleeding in the brain. Use with caution!
Another promising "smart pill" is phosphatidylserine,
or PS, a natural substance that helps cell walls stay
pliable and is thought to boost the effectiveness
of neurotransmitters, which relay brain signals. In
a May 1991 study published in Neurology, neuroscientist
Thomas Crook found that patients with age-associated
memory impairment improved their scores on key performance
tests after 12 weeks on PS. Research continues to
determine whether the supplement is safe and
The ABC's of Brain
Power - Vitamin Supplements!
If you are not interested in being a guinea pig,
you're safer taking a multivitamin, according to some
experts. It's well known that antioxidants like vitamins
C and E protect cells from damage by disarming
free radicals. Brain cells are especially vulnerable
to these troublemakers because the brain generates
more free radicals per gram of tissue than any other
organ. Antioxidants also protect neurons by keeping
blood vessels supple and open, ensuring the flow of
nutrients to the brain.
In a recent study, those who regularly took vitamin
C scored higher on brain function tests.
And if you obtain your vitamin C from a multivitamin,
you receive other key nutrients that many studies
over the years have linked to healthy brain function,
including beta carotene, iron, zinc, B12 and folic
acid. In the June 1999 issue of the Journal of
Biology and Psychiatry, for instance, researchers
at Sweden's Gotenborg University reported that older
people were more likely to score poorly on word memory
tests if they had low levels of folic acid.
supplements are good for maintaining balance, they don't
offer the full-spectrum of nutrients necessary to maintain
optimum health. Science is discovering literally thousands
of nutrients that are in addition to the basic vitamins
and minerals we were taught to consume.The
single most reliable way to protect our brain cells
as we age, most researchers agree, is to eat plenty
of fruits and vegetables, which are chock-full of antioxidants
and nutrients. The top performers in a myriad of studies

fats, especially the long-chain Omega 3 essential
fatty acids, the kind found in seafood (such as
salmon, herring, and mackerel), have beneficial effects
for the brain. Fish get the Omega 3's from the algae
they eat. Some leafy green vegetables, as well as
walnuts, flaxseed, and canola oil, contain shorter-chain
omega-3s, but these are not readily converted by our
bodies into EPA and DHA. It's important to chose your
seafood wisely though, as a rise in popularity has

World As I See It
Einstein believed in the possibility of a peaceful world
and in the high mission of science to serve human well-being.
As we near the end of a century in which science has
come to seem more and more remote from human values,
Einstein's perspective is indispensable.
A new edition of the most definitive collection of Albert
Einstein's popular writings, gathered under the supervision
of Einstein himself. The selections range from his earliest
days as a theoretical physicist to his death in 1955;
from such subjects as relativity, nuclear war or peace,
and religion and science, to human rights, economics,
of my Later Years is a collection of Einstein's
speeches and articles covering not just physics but
his thoughts on the social condition of man, of Jews,
and of war as well as several speeches about the likes
of Max Planck, Mahatma Gandhi, and Marie Curie.
It's music for the intellect and the spirit. Recent
studies have shown that there is a correlation between
a relaxed state of being and accelerated learning. The
music of Mozart (the Sonata for Two Pianos in D-Major)
as performed by J.S. Epperson, combined with Hemi-Sync
concentration frequencies, helps make any mental task
more efficient. The perfect way to jump-start your conscious
mind and unlock the secrets of the universe!
to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci: Seven Steps to Genius
Every Day by Michael J. Gelb. Unlock
the "da Vincian" genius inside us. Gelb says there
are seven critical principles that need to be followed
for success, whether you're learning a new language,
studying to be a gourmet chef, or just hoping to be
more effective on the job:
An insatiably curious approach to life.
A commitment to test knowledge through experience.
The continual refinement of the senses, especially
sight, as the means to clarify experience.
A willingness to embrace ambiguity, paradox, and
The development of the balance between science and
art, logic and imagination ("whole-brain thinking").
The cultivation of ambidexterity, fitness, and poise.
A recognition and appreciation for the connectedness
of all things and phenomena; "systems thinking."
Michael Gelb, founder of High Performance Learning
and consultant for companies including AT&T and National
Public Radio discusses each of these principles in
relation to what da Vinci accomplished, thereby giving
this book a built-in history lesson. The illustrations
from the master's work and time add a nice warmth
to the work. As the president of NPR said after working
with Gelb, this is a program recommended for "anyone
who wants to experience a personal and professional
is the door to learning."

(Edu-K) is an innovative approach that uses movement
as a means to enhance learning. In Edu-K, the mind and
body are integrated through a variety of simple activities
that expand the learner's perceptual awareness while
providing greater access to the innate abilities needed
for information processing. Learning involves more than
mental acuity. When parents and educators use Edu-K
to address the physical skills involved in the learning
process, a child's natural intelligence can emerge.
Spell a word backwards, hum a tune, answer a multiple-choice
question, draw with your eyes closed, and more when
you play Cranium. Unlike games that focus on only a
few skills, Cranium offers 14 talent-tapping activities
designed to bring out the best in you and your friends.
Cards from four decks, color-coded to match each of
the crazy characters--Star Performer, Creative Cat,
Data Head, and Word Worm--describe activities that teams
must complete in order to advance around the board.
If you choose a Sculptorades card from the Creative
Cat deck, for example, you might be asked to sculpt
a hamburger from lemon-scented Cranium Clay while your
teammates try to guess what you're creating.
If you've been around babies in the last few years,
you've seen these newfangled toys that are abstract
in color (or just black, white, and red) and make curious,
crunching noises. Studies have shown that these types
of toys stimulate newborns, expanding the capacity of
their little sponge-like minds. That concept comes to
the video age in Baby Einstein. This 30-minute tape
is called a "video board book" and the creators
instruct parents of 1- to 18-month-olds to use it that
way: huddle around the TV often pointing out objects
and interacting with the child as you would with a book.
Bright toys, patterns, blocks, and the like move across
the screen accompanied by natural sounds, music, and
voices. English, Japanese, Russian, German, and other
languages are heard telling nursery rhymes or counting
to 20. Now the creators don't expect your baby to recite
"Humpty Dumpty" in Spanish by the end of the
tape, but, as they state in the introduction, hearing
different languages invigorates a baby's mind. These
educators went on to combine classical music with their
program on Baby
Mozart and Baby Bach.
