“The Performance Cortex: How Neuroscience Is Redefining Athletic Genius” by Zach Schonbrun

BrainGate2 research by Bolu Ajiboye, PhD and Robert Kirsch, PhD is prominently featured in chapter nine of the recently published book, The Performance Cortex: How Neuroscience Is Redefining Athletic Genius by Zach Schonbrun.

Whether it is timing a 95 mph fastball or reaching for a coffee mug, movement requires a complex suite of computations that many take for granted — until they read The Performance Cortex. Zach Schonbrun ushers in a new way of thinking about the athletic gifts we marvel over and seek to develop in our own lives. It’s not about the million-dollar arm anymore. It’s about the million-dollar brain.

The book is available for purchase here.

 

“A must-read for the cerebral sports fan…
like Moneyball except nerdier. Much nerdier.”
