Future Bright

A Transforming Vision of Human Intelligence

Michael E. Martinez, PhD

  • Presents the exciting argument --based in research from cognitive science - that intelligence can be learned
  • Counters the common belief that you are born with a fixed amount of intelligence
  • Ranging from the search for Einstein's brain to the curious case of a railroad worker whose frontal lobe was pierced by a tamping iron, Martinez looks at some of the most fascinating stories in the history of cognitive science, revealing how researchers have sought insight into intelligence by understanding more about the brain
  • A radically new conception of human intelligence, revealing it to be fluid, changeable--and quite improvable
