Website Shines Light on Human Brain, Debunks Myths

BrainFacts.org, a website created by The Kavli Foundation, the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, and the Society for Neuroscience offers insights into one of the most fascinating and complex organs — the human brain. The site provides up-to-date, scientifically reviewed information on the brain, including new discoveries in neuroscience, information about neurological and psychiatric diseases, and educational material for teachers.

BrainFacts.org also debunks popular myths about what exactly happens inside our brain. For instance, despite commonly held beliefs, listening to classical music will not make your baby smarter (although playing an instrument might), and solving crossword puzzles will not keep your brain young (but physical exercise will).
