New neuroscience-based platform to get to know your mind


My friend Stanford neuroscientist Melina Uncapher and her colleagues are piloting a new public project called mymntr meant to create a "user guide for your brain" through brain tests for self-knowledge, interviews with fascinating creative folks to get a sense of the minds behind the madness, and lots of other cool stuff at the intersection of science and culture.

"We want to empower people to know that the brain they have isn't the brain they're stuck with!" says Melina, who is also a fellow at Institute for the Future.

Try the mymntr Profile Quiz first. Apparently, my brain is characterized as: "Fearless Focus Freak On!" Sounds good to me.
