- Insider's Take
Neuroscientist Michael L. Platt’s brief overview of the field of applied neuroscience focuses on current and near-future uses of the science in society and at work. Platt argues that enhanced understanding of the brain – combined with wearable technologies and artificial intelligence (AI) – will revolutionize health and human performance. Readers can test Platt’s tips on employees at work, making this quick read potentially valuable. The book provides leaders and workers who are unfamiliar with the advances in the field with plenty of practical – if somewhat scattered – advice.
