Book Title: The Mommy Brain: How Motherhood Makes Us Smarter

Author: Katherine Ellison

Book Description:

As a clinical psychologist and neuroscientist who studies gender differences in the representation of cognitive abilities in the human brain, while juggling a busy clinical practice and patient-oriented research grants along with being mommy to a preschooler, I found this a timely read, with strong scientific foundations yet accessible to the layperson. It debunks the myths that have led to the discrimination against women as they pass through this phase of their life and elevates the level of discussion.
