Happy Holidays GGI / Epic Challenge supporters!

Today, we just want to say we love giving you -- especially "all the news that's fit to print" regarding the art and science of brain knowledge.

So in light of the holidaze, here's a great little study that shows that a monkey may just be your perfect mate for thrift shopping this season:

Read and wonder:

Sending good cheer for the season!

Dr G and all of the team members of The George Greenstein Institute

P.S. Yesterday was #givingtuesday. But today this is simply our way of saying thanks to all of you as generous donors to this year's Epic Challenge: Rock the Rocks crowdrise. Wow, a great time had by all!

Good morning Epic Challenge Contributors,

A Fab Friday final link to show you the viv and verve of our Epic Challenge teens as they encounter human and animal brains a la Young Frankenstein!

We are moving on to mount our new initiative Your Brain on Brain with a Jan 2015 program at the Mind and Life Expo in the L. A. Coliseum.

On behalf of the GGI Epic Challenge Team, I offer my steadfast thanks to all of you for helping spark something new in the minds of young lives.

You remain Rock Stars one and all.

Here's to more brain health with science + art learning.

Wow what a week! The GGI Team just completed our 5 day Epic Challenge Lab Camp with prototype solutions for NASA that will knock your Sci-Fi socks off!

We remain dazzled by the zany ingenuity, open-mindedness and collaborative spirit generated by the marvelous youth who signed up for the Asteroid Quest!

Good Morning to All of You that have helped us "Rock the Rocks!"

Woo hoo! We launch our Epic Challenge Lab Camp in less than a week!

Coolio news to share with you:

1. Members from Advanced Brain Monitoring systems will join us on to demo their mobile EEG equipment right on the heads of our Epic Challenge teens!


2. Day 1 of our program starts with a hands-on tour of Qualcomm's research labs at UCSanDiego, followed by spatial memory navigation experiments with Epic Challenge masters neuroscientist Dr. Clemenson and global designer Owen Fritts.

We wish all of you could join us for the fun!

Yours with neurons sparking,

Good Morning Generous donors…
Good Morning Generous donors to GGI's Epic Challenge Crowdrise!

Well you really Rocked the Rocks! Your acts of kindness and moment of laser attention has pushed us beyond our set goal.

Because of your effort, GGI can deliver its world class program with fiscal confidence.

This translates to: 5 fun filled, STEAM-E days of brain smart, mind awake spatial navigation for educationally - at risk teens in San Diego - ranging in ages from 13-18,

What does educationally "at-risk" mean? We are catering to students who don't fit into traditional public school education -- what Steve Jobs called ' the misfits, the round pegs in the square holes.' We like to think of them as "neuronauts" -- those who are obsessively curious about themselves, their own brain and the world, those feel something inside themselves pushing, urging, nudging them to 'think different.'

These Epic Challengers will be assured the lots of opportunities to do that come July 7 when we launch at -- thanks to your gracious contributions.

Marvelous each and every one of you!

With grateful heart,

Dr. Greenstein aka Dr. G., Founder, GGI

p.s. This year's Epic Challenge follows on our 2013 Hippocampus Huts and Memory Palace Lab Camp which zeroed in on the neuroscience of spatial memory. If you're curious as to why this year we're expanding out to NASA's Asteroid quest, a little ASAPscience for you:
