Neuroscientist Friederike Fabritius and consultant Dr. Hans W. Hagemann have decades of experience helping organizations understand and leverage brain science for better performance and productivity. They describe the influence of neurochemicals on human performance in an engaging, clear manner that laypeople can easily understand. They detail scientific techniques and insights that can induce peak performance, both by living well and healthfully, and by organizing work to stimulate the release of neurochemicals. Though some of the advice they offer sounds mundane – deep-breathing exercises, positive thoughts, power posturing or smiling to make yourself happier – the authors also provide applicable and original advice derived from the latest neuroscience.
