Explanation: How Brain Training Can Make You Significantly Smarter

Explanation: How Brain Training Can Make You Significantly Smarter | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

As many people hit middle age, they often start to notice that their memory and mental clarity are not what they used to be.  We suddenly can't remember where we put the keys just a moment ago, or an old acquaintance's name, or the name of an old band we used to love.  As the brain fades, we euphemistically refer to these occurrences as "senior moments."


While seemingly innocent, this loss of mental focus can potentially have a detrimental impact on our professional, social, and personal well-being.


It happens to most of us, but is it inevitable?

Letting an older computer focus on one important task can perform much better than the fast comptuer running 13 applications.

Shirley Marriott's comment, May 12, 2013 3:59 PM
This is one area that I can help with. I offer a variety of therapies which will help to reduce your stress levels and give you the much needed time out even 10 minutes and I offer these therapies not only in a variety of clinics but due to the lack of time people have I can come to the office environment. During the therapy you remain fully clothed and I work with you to cause the least disruption to the work being carried out. As little as 10 minutes can make a huge difference to a persons life. We think we have not got the time but can you really afford for the negative effects of stress to build up?
WorkplaceIncentives's curator insight, May 12, 2013 11:19 PM

Stress is often seen as the result of an event. The event causes stress. However this isn't true. We as individuals have the ability to control whether or not we 'get stressed'. It is in fact our perception of any event or 'thing' that may cause us to be stressed. Should we perceive an event in a positive light or choose to frame the event constructively, we can prevent ourselves from becoming stressed. As you're reading this insight you might be thinking that it may seem like we're stating the obvious and yet so many people, probably including yourself, get stressed on a regular basis...

Jesse Wieser's curator insight, May 20, 2013 7:43 PM

My thoughts

After reading this article, I find the mini-relaxation plans suggested are a huge help when your running on little to no time and just need a quick breather. The relaxation plan in this article goes into detail about what can you do to relieve some stress in 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes, etc. which can be very helpful even trying these plans in between classes on account of the fact school can be very stressful at times. What I enjoyed the most about this article is the 2 minute relaxation plan, where I'll be taking 1 deep breath for every number I count down too since deep-breathing helps relieves stress and some of the bad toxins in your body.

How ideas are spread in the brain

How ideas are spread in the brain | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Psychologists at UCLA have for the first time identified the brain regions associated with the successful spread of ideas, often called " buzz."
The research has a broad range of implications, and could lead to more effective public health campaigns, more persuasive advertisements and better ways for teachers to communicate with students, the study authors said.
"Our study suggests that people are regularly attuned to how the things they`re seeing will be useful and interesting, not just to themselves but to other people," the study`s senior author, Matthew Lieberman, a UCLA professor of psychology and of psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences, said.

I agree re: the importance of a title. But the content must fulfill the promise. If the content doesn't live up to the title, it erodes trust and enthusiasm for your next piece.

Anne Egros's curator insight, June 16, 2013 4:37 AM

 

This study looks interesting and raises some questions:

 

Can we effectively link personality to brain structure and neurochemistry ? 

 

What if you are neither a strong extrovert nor a strong introvert ?

 

I also think there are other factors than extrovertion/introvertion that are impacting the way people behave in various contexts and their "rewarding mechanisms"

 

 

 

Anne Egros's comment, June 16, 2013 1:24 PM
To quote Carl Jung, the psychologist who coined the terms introversion and extraversion*, “there is no such things as a pure extravert or a pure introvert. Such a man would be in the lunatic asylum.”
