Beauty and the Brain: Amen Clinics Research and Weight Loss Director, the Dynamic and Insightful Kristen Willeumier, Ph.D., Back With the Low Down on Improving Our Brains While Benefiting Our Looks!
We live in a looks obsessed society. Beauty is a multibillion dollar industry. Images, be they online, on television, in the movies or in magazines, fill our minds with visions of physical excellence seemingly beyond our grasp. And while looks garner a huge share of our attention, our brains - repositories of imagination, intellect and emotion - hardly get any attention at all. There are, however, people dedicated to studying the brain and helping us improve brain function. One of those individuals is Kristen Willeumier, Ph.D., Research and Weight Loss Director at the renowned Amen Clinics in Southern California. I have had the pleasure of speaking with Dr. Willeumieur on a number of occasions, on CYInterview, along with my colleague Chris Yandek. Dr. Willeumieur is a neuroscientist who is able to take seemingly complicated concepts of brain chemistry and brain function and make them clear and understandable. That said, we thought we would pose to her some questions about improving the function of our brains while working at improving our looks.
