Daniel J. Levitin, Author, The Organized Mind: Thinking Straight in the Age of Information Overload and This Is Your Brain on Music
In conversation with Indre Viskontas, Host, Inquiring Minds
In the information age, people are expected to make faster, more frequent decisions about their lives despite facing an unprecedented, unrelenting barrage of data each day. It’s no wonder, then, why the average person is prone to missing appointments, losing track of their car keys and generally feeling worn out as they struggle to keep up. Join Levitin for a discussion on how to not only organize your home and time, but also excel at navigating this never-ending flood of information through a neuroscientific perspective.
In his recent book, The Organized Mind, acclaimed neuroscientist and New York Times bestselling author Daniel J. Levitin explores the latest brain science to illustrate how we can apply the newest research into the cognitive neuroscience of attention and memory into our daily lives.
