How Does Writing Affect Your Brain? [infographic] | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
According to today’s infographic, writing can serve as a calming, meditative tool. Stream of conscious writing exercises, in particular, have been identified as helpful stress coping methods. Keeping a journal, for example, or trying out free-writing exercises, can drastically reduce your levels of stress.

Eugene Fernandez's insight:

The act of writing is in of itself a reflective and creative journey.

Change Curve: The Dynamic Change Model [Part 1]

Change Curve: The Dynamic Change Model [Part 1] | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
I’ve been exploring the Change Curve, a framework for understanding organisational change and what we can do to ease the process. It characterises three states: ‘Resistant‘ organisations, who reject change and deploy antibodies to kill it, ‘Constrained‘ organisations, who are unable to relinquish enough control for it truly to gain momentum, and ‘Dynamic‘ organisations, whereby change comes naturally, not as the exception, and the change is co-created and co-owned. It’s a state of true agili

Eugene Fernandez's insight:

A must read about the immediate future of mobility that will no doubt counterbalance the current narrow vision of building more freeways. We will no doubt overcome our current and valid distrust for self-driving technology and embrace its advantages as the technology improves. I for one look forward to this emerging future as the benefits far outweigh the short term hurdles.

Here’s Why Your Brain Seems Mostly Dormant - Issue 27: Dark Matter - Nautilus

Here’s Why Your Brain Seems Mostly Dormant - Issue 27: Dark Matter - Nautilus | Frame 4 - DOOR to Learning and Change | Scoop.it
You’ve probably heard the myth that the average person uses only 10 percent of their brain. It’s a seductive lie because it suggests…
Eugene Fernandez's insight:

 

Using only 10% of our brain capacity is both a myth and a reality as summarised in this article. Much of it has to do with the efficient use of energy, with a small number of neurons typically using up the bulk of energy in the brain - Thereby, placing a ceiling on how much of the cortex can be engaged at once.

 

A small group of neurons fire hundreds of thousands of time more than the others, this disparity may be because some provide for more rapid 'best guess' responses whist the quieter ones refine these into more specific perception. The quieter neurons though also act as relays, fluctuating their voltage and creating brain waves. Thus efficiency is maximised.
