Slideshow on ‘Brain Rules’

Ian Boyle, a friend of mine here in Australia, just turned me onto SlideShare, a website where you can upload and share PowerPoint slide shows. I see myself losing more than a couple of hours into this as the downloading take some time, but there are some great neuroanthropology-related resources.

One of the slideshows that I came across immediately that may be relevant is one based on John Medina’s book, Brain Rules: The slideshow is titled, ‘Brain Rules for Presenters,’ and it was put together by Garr of Presentation Zen.

Trained as a cultural anthropologist at the University of Chicago, I have gone on to do fieldwork in Brazil and the United States. I have written one book, Learning Capoeira: Lessons in Cunning from an Afro-Brazilian Art (Oxford, 2005). I have also co-authored and co-edited several, including, with Dr. Daniel Lende, The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology (MIT, 2012), and with Dr. Melissa Fisher, Frontiers of Capital: Ethnographic Reflections on the New Economy (Duke, 2006). My research interests include neuroanthropology, psychological anthropology, sport, dance, human rights, neuroscience, phenomenology, economic anthropology, and just about anything else that catches my attention.
