Henning Beck: “The brain is the last and greatest mystery in science”

Remember that time you forgot your own phone number? Or how about that time you messed up a simple math equation? In Scatterbrain, neuroscientist Henning Beck explains why perfectionism is pointless — and argues that mistakes, missteps, and flaws are the keys to success.

A PhD graduate from the Graduate School of Cellular & Molecular Neuroscience, University of Tübingen, Beck — now based in Frankfurt, Germany — is a frequent lecturer, workshop leader, science-slam speaker, and has been writing books about the brain since 2012.
