Molly Rose Teuke

Midday Classics Host / Commentator

You can hear Molly Rose as a host on Thursday's Midday Classics and as a monthly commentator in Morning Edition and All Things Considered as she talks about the mysteries of the brain.

It’s that time of year when we’re wondering if we can get our brains in gear to help us keep those new year’s resolutions. In his 2001 classic, A Users Guide to the Brain, neuropsychiatrist Dr. John Ratey wrote, “Our own free will may be the strongest force directing the development of our brains, and therefore our lives.”

In the first episode of our new monthly feature — BrainWorks — WXPR’s classical music host and brain-based coach Molly Rose Teuke says it’s not hard to use your free will to build yourself a better brain.
