Alex Korb, PhD is a neuroscientist, writer, and coach. He is the author of The Upward Spiral: Using Neuroscience to Reverse the Course of Depression, One Small Change at a Time. In its first week it quickly became the #1 New Release in Depression on Amazon. The Upward Spiral is intended for a general audience and it discusses what’s happening in the brain in depression and what you can do about it. Whether you suffer from depression, know someone who does, or are just interested in how the brain controls motivation, habits, focus and decision-making, The Upward Spiral has something for everyone.
Dr. Korb also writes a popular blog for PsychologyToday: PreFrontal Nudity – The Brain Exposed.
