The Circadian Code – Satchin Panda

When we eat may be as important as what we eat. Like most people, you probably wake up, get hungry for meals and doze off in bed around the same time every day. If you’ve ever experienced jet lag or pulled an all-nighter, you know that this schedule can easily be thrown off kilter. But for some people, that imbalance—difficulty sleeping at night, hunger at odd times, or sudden fatigue at noon—is a constant. If you’re one of those people, Dr. Satchin Panda, one of ...




Why We Sleep – Matthew Walker PhD

A New York Times bestseller and international sensation, this “stimulating and important book” (Financial Times) from the director of UC Berkeley’s Center for Human Sleep Science is a fascinating dive into the purpose and power of slumber.

Experience on Demand – Jeremy Bailenson

An in-depth look at virtual reality and how it can be harnessed to improve our everyday lives. Virtual reality is able to effectively blur the line between reality and illusion, pushing the limits of our imagination and granting us access to any experience imaginable. With well-crafted simulations, these experiences, which are so immersive that the brain believes they’re real, are already widely available with a VR headset and will only become more accessible and commonplace. But how does this new medium affect its users, and ...



The Hot Zone – Richard Preston

  The Terrifying True Story of the Origins of the Ebola Virus The Gaia hypothesis proposes that Earth, and the organisms on it, form a self-regulating system that maintains the conditions necessary for life. That the planet is alive, in other words, in much the same way that we are. And just as we have mechanisms to fight off infections, the Earth has tools to protect its well-being. Are viruses, such as Ebola, Marburg, and HIV, acting as “the Earth’s own antibodies, protecting the environment from encroachment ...
