I'm a sophomore at Bryn Mawr. I plan on being a bio major with an NBS concentration. I took the Brain and Mental Health last semester, along with Experimental Psychology, so I have a brief background with the brain but would like to learn as much as possible. The brain fascinates me; I don't know if there is one thing I like best about it. Its power continually amazes me. I like learning about mental "illnesses" and trying to remove the stigma surrounding them. I have some experience with a few mental "illnesses" which left me curious about their origins and effects. Some questions....

-  can we strengthen our muscles in our sleep through lucid dreaming?

- can the brain be connected directly to the internet? (I realize that it will take a few years for this to happen, if it is possible)

- can someone become a better mind-reader simply by practicing reading body language?
