Check out these Learning Videos


I have found some learning videos by Dr Andrew Huberman that explain how the brain functions and how to use that information to improve your ability to learn new skills and information. They also give help on how to live a healthier and more satisfying life.

I highly recommend these videos to everyone, chess players, soccer players, AND parents.
