Neurobiologist, Professor of Psychology and Psychiatry, founder and Director of the Center for Healthy Minds
We can actually be happier people. We can suffer less if we take responsibility of our own mind.
Everything we've learned about the brain suggests it's no different than learning the violin... if you practice, you'll get better at it.
I envision a day when mental exercise will be as much a part of our daily lives as physical exercise and personal hygiene.
