Power Up Your Brain

People have searched for enlightenment for thousands of years, but it seems to be an unreachable goal for most.

Neuroscientist David Perlmutter and medical anthropologist Alberto Villoldo have teamed up to make enlightenment more achievable for people everywhere by investigating the similarities between their specialties.
