AnneLene Johnsen

Selected titles

AnneLene Johnsen is a maths whiz who used to solve maths problems in her spare time just for fun. Today the former Mensa president is a known columnist within the field of mental health and education, has written several brain training books, and has spent most of her career teaching and writing about how we can ensure that our minds work as efficiently as possible – something which has also involved testing her skills as a high school maths teacher.

AnneLene has a master’s degree in business and management, a BA in psychology, and has studied cognitive neuroscience and social psychology at postgraduate and PhD-level. She is the owner of the BrainFactory, where she arranges courses for parents and teachers on how to learn and make the most out of our brains. Her most recent book, Hvordan fatte matte (written together with Elin Natas), is currently high in the Norwegian best seller lists and has been sold to many foreign markets.
