Welcome to The Brain Beat! Written by veteran science journalist Brenda Patoine, who has been on the “brain beat,” covering brain advances, for more than 32 years (and counting), The Brain Beat is Neuroscience News for the Rest of Us. Our focus here is practical applications of advances in brain research: what does it mean to you and me? Here you will find science news you can use to better your brain — and your life!
We will occasionally feature recent writings from our day job as a freelance science writer. You can also peruse articles we’ve written in recent years in the Portfolio section of the Brain Beat website.

Thank you for being here! Stay tuned for more brain blogging on The Brain Beat!
