Cheryl Chow has been a lifelong resident of planet Earth.
When she was a child, her passion was to explore the furthest reaches of outer space. But she quickly realized that she was too sickly to ever become an astronaut. Instead, she learned that traveling inner space could be just as adventurous—and for her, much more pragmatic.
Her life dream then, unlike possibly more rational peers, was not to strike it rich (not that she would mind, it simply wasn’t the top priority); drive a Ferrari, Porsche, or Mercedes (nice, but again, not a priority); win the beauty pageant (would have to be reborn with a completely different set of genes); or get married, have children and live in a house in the suburbs with a white picket fence (sounds more like a nightmare than a dream!).
No, Cheryl’s dream was—and is—to acquire a bigger, better, brawnier brain.
So she’s embarked on a journey to see just how far she could reach in tapping the potential of her mind.
Blogging about the topic seemed like the natural thing to do because Cheryl’s been a writer for many years, as well as a print addict who reads everything and anything she can get her hands on (or get up on her computer screen).
Books she’s written (or contributed to) include Hypoglycemia for Dummies and The Encyclopedia of Hepatitis and Other Liver Diseases, which she coauthored with her older brother, a medical doctor.
This blog was started then, as a record and a rich resource for anyone interested in improving their brain—because one of Cheryl’s passions is to share her discoveries. Since she can read Japanese and Chinese, she expects to also delve into any brain literature published in either of these languages.
