Learning a new skill can be hard, especially if it is not something we are naturally good at. However, there is research that can help us understand what parts of the brain need to be activated in order to learn, and what we need to do to activate them.

On this podcast, you will learn the difference between soft skills and hard skills, why they are important, and how you can sharpen your skills. Joining us on the show is Todd Maddox, an expert in the area of neuroscience, with more than 200 peer-reviewed research reports, and more than 12,000 citations under his belt. He is also the founder and CEO of Cognitive Design & Statistical Consulting and has a Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

And for our Neuron to something piece, we have results of a new survey which advocates that the public wouldn’t trust companies to scan social media posts for signs of depression.
