Adjust Your Brain
Adjust Your Brain represents a landmark breakthrough for the field of psychiatry.
A landmark breakthrough in the field of psychiatry, this distils a synthesis of information from the scientific literature, popular literature, and personal experience into a simple model of brain chemistry that is easy to understand. Tweaking the strengths of drugs to mid-range and therefore optimal degrees not only treats nearly every type of mental illness, but also will produce a significant improvement in quality of life for most people who are considered normal. Paul Fitzgerald has a PhD in neuroscience from Johns Hopkins University, and has produced pioneering brain mapping studies with some of the most widely respected neuroscientists in the world.
