Your Brain Has A ‘Delete Button’ And Here’s How To Use It! – Prepare for Change

 

By: lifecoachcodeThere’s an old saying in neuroscience: “neurons that fire together wire together.”

 This means the more you run a neuro-circuit in your brain, the stronger that circuit becomes. This is why, to quote another old saw, “practice makes perfect”. The more you practice piano, or speaking a language, or juggling, the stronger those circuits get.

Scientists have known this for years. However, nowadays researchers learn another part of the truth: In order to learn something, even more important than practicing is the ability to unlearn, or to break down the old neural connections. This is called “synaptic pruning”.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:

Imagine your brain is a garden, except instead of growing flowers, fruits, and vegetables, you grow synaptic connections between neurons. These are the connections that neurotransmitters like dopamine, seratonin, and others travel across.

“Glial cells” are the gardeners of your brain—they act to speed up signals between certain neurons. But other glial cells are the waste removers, pulling up weeds, killing pests, raking up dead leaves. Your brain’s pruning gardeners are called “microglial cells.” They prune your synaptic connections. The question is, how do they know which ones to prune?

Researchers are just starting to unravel this mystery, but what they do know is the synaptic connections that get used less get marked by a protein, C1q (as well as others). When the microglial cells detect that mark, they bond to the protein and destroy—or prune—the synapse.

This is how your brain makes the physical space for you to build new and stronger connections so you can learn more.

THIS IS WHY SLEEP MATTERS:…

Web-Based Brain Damage and Mindless Data Consumption — Effects of Multitasking | Stillness in the Storm

(Brendan D. Murphy) “Even though we think we’re getting a lot done, ironically, multitasking makes us demonstrably less efficient.” ~Daniel J. Levitin, Neuroscientist .Web-Based Brain Damage Evidence is mounting that our haphazard info-consuming ways on the web are adversely affecting our neurological and cognitive functioning – as well as wasting time by making us far less efficient – and far more distracted – than we think we are. The internet is a wonderful (read: essential) thing for humanity, but the way we use it seems to need some tweaking…

(Before It’s News) by Health and Love Page

You have probably heard that turmeric is one of the healthiest spices in the world, due to its incredible nutrient content and powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-aging, and antioxidant properties. Most of its healing powers come from its active compound – curcumin, and more than 7,000 studies have proven its numerous benefits to our health.

But first, let’s explain how to make this turmeric water: add a teaspoon of ground turmeric and a pinch of black pepper in a glass of warm water. Stir well and drink while warm. Drink this beverage in the morning, and you’ll soon feel the same health benefits the woman from Bristol did. Here are some of the benefits you’ll get by drinking this beverage in the morning for 12 months:

Lucid Dreamers Found To Produce The Fastest Brainwave Frequencies Ever Recorded | Stillness in the Storm

(Arjun Walia) Lucid dreaming is one category of dreams that many people experience. It occurs when the individual is dreaming and during that dream the individual is completely aware that they are dreaming. Some people report a low-level lucidity state where one is aware they are dreaming but not able to alter the content of the dream. Other people have experienced high-level lucidity where one is aware they are dreaming but are also able to alter the dream, and have the freedom to do whatever they desire within the dream…
