4p             Big Ideas Reading Group: How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where, and Why It Happens by Benedict Carey.

Is a dedicated desk in a quiet room really the best way to study? Can altering your routine improve your recall? Are there times when distraction is good? Is repetition necessary? Carey’s search for answers to these questions yields a wealth of strategies that make learning more a part of our everyday lives — and less of a chore. For June 13, again at Kepler’s: A Skeptic’s Guide to the Mind: What Neuroscience Can and Cannot Tell Us About Ourselves by Robert A. Burton, M.D. We are meeting this month at Kepler’s, 1010 El Camino Real (at Ravenswood Ave.), Menlo Park 94025. Free parking in basement garage. Meetings go for about 2 hours.
