11 steps to a better brain

This goes along with my post about exercising the parts of the brain we don't use too often.

Tricks, techniques and habits, as well as changes to your lifestyle, diet and behaviour that can help get the best out of your brain cells
  1. Smart drugs ~ Does getting old have to mean worsening memory, slower reactions and fuzzy thinking?
  2. Food for thought ~ You are what you eat, and that includes your brain. So what is the ultimate mastermind diet?
  3. The Mozart effect ~ Music may tune up your thinking, but you can't just crank up the volume and expect to become a genius
  4. Bionic brains ~ If training and tricks seem too much like hard work, some technological short cuts can boost brain function
  5. Gainful employment ~ Put your mind to work in the right way and it could repay you with an impressive bonus
  6. Memory marvels ~ Mind like a sieve? Don't worry. The difference between mere mortals and memory champs is more method than mental capacity
  7. Sleep on it ~ Never underestimate the power of a good night's rest
  8. Body and mind ~ Physical exercise can boost brain as well as brawn
  9. Nuns on a run ~ If you don't want senility to interfere with your old age, perhaps you should seek some sisterly guidance
  10. Attention seeking ~ You can be smart, well-read, creative and knowledgeable, but none of it is any use if your mind isn't on the job
  11. Positive feedback ~ Thought control is easier than you might imagine
