Background on Princeton Professor Neurobiology, Keck Foundation Distinguished Young Scholar and an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow Dr. Sam Wang
Welcome to Your Child’s Brain: How the Mind Grows from Conception to College
Should you eat sushi while pregnant? Would learning to play an instrument make your child smarter? What is the best indicator of academic success (hint: it’s not IQ). How children think is one of the most enduring mysteries – and difficulties – encountered by parents. In an effort to raise our children smarter, happier, stronger, and better, parents will try almost anything, from vitamins to toys to DVDs. But we forget one thing: brains do most of the work themselves. If we know how they do it, we can worry less, enjoy our children more, and fill the right roles in their lives – through infancy, childhood, and until they leave the nest. Join Co-Author and Professor Sam Wang for a fascinating, authoritative, general-public talk about the facets and functions of the developing brain.
“Dr. Wang and co-author Dr. Aamost playfully and engagingly introduce us to the hidden talents of our children’s brains.” Mehmet Oz, MD, Most of the Dr. OZ Show
