Dr. Joan King on The Holiday Brain

Nov 29, 2013

Entering the holiday season, KUVO's "jazz neuroscientist" Dr. Joan King shares some insights on the effects of various excesses, and how our brains respond.  Overeating, sugar and alcohol, and family stress all impact the brain differently, and thus our behaviors. Dr. King offers some strategies to consider, beginning with that Thanksgiving post-meal nap. Dr. Joan King's website is www.cellular-wisdom.com
