Sometimes brain damage results in the creation of new pathways that give victims unprecedented skills or abilities. Although there’s still a lot of research to be done about how the brain works, scientists have discovered some ways that ordinary people can make the most of what they have.

If you want to learn more about how the brain works, and how to make the most of it, take a look at the Brain Rules website. Created by molecular biologist John Medina, the website includes 12 free tutorials on maximizing your brain’s abilities.

Here are the first six of Medina’s “Brain Rules”:

1. Exercise boosts brain power.

2. The human brain evolved, too.

3. Every brain is wired differently.

4. We don’t pay attention to boring things.

5. Repeat to remember.

6. Remember to repeat.

For the rest of the Brain Rules and an explanation of how to use these tools check out the free video tutorials.
