Beauty and the Brain: Amen Clinics Research and Weight Loss Director, the Dynamic and Insightful Kristen Willeumier, Ph.D., Back With the Low Down on Improving Our Brains While Benefiting Our Looks!
We live in a looks obsessed society. Beauty is a multibillion dollar industry. Images, be they online, on television, in the movies or in magazines, fill our minds with visions of physical excellence seemingly beyond our grasp. And while looks garner a huge share of our attention, our brains – repositories of imagination, intellect and emotion – hardly get any attention at all.
There are, however, people dedicated to studying the brain and helping us improve brain function.

I have had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Willeumieur on a number of occasions, on CYInterview, along with my colleague Chris Yandek.
