I'm sure it's happened to you: You're in a tense team meeting trying to defend your position on a big project and start to feel yourself losing ground. Your voice gets louder. You talk over one of your colleagues and correct his point of view. He pushes back, so you go into overdrive to convince everyone you're right. It feels like an out of body experience — and in many ways it is. In terms of its neurochemistry, your brain has been hijacked.

What is good for the body... is good for the brain! Often when we hear the term "healthy" we generally think in terms of our body. However, realizing the positive impact healthy habits have on our brains and the dramatic effect they have on children can make an remarkable difference.

I find it amazing that due to technological advances, we now understand the developing brain better than ever before, and in many cases just the opposite is occurring for too many children.

Neuroscience Says Buildings Can Reshape Our Brains

Neuroscience Says Buildings Can Reshape Our Brains | The Amazing Brain | Scoop.it

"Another major insight comes thanks to advancements in brain-imaging techniques, which are helping scientists better empirically gauge how our brains react to specific types of spaces, light, and noise. Badger talks to Eduardo Macagno, a UC San Diego biologist who runs a virtual reality lab testing new types of hospital design (here’s a great video about it). Premature babies, brain damaged patients, or those suffering from dementia will all spend significant amounts of time in hospitals, which means that Gage’s and Macagno’s insights could help create spaces conducive to their sensitive brains."

Great overview of neurleadership..."Most of your actions are unconscious rather than conscious and it takes great effort to make your brain concentrate on a task, says David Rock, the man who coined the term “NeuroLeadership”. Author of the 2009 best-seller Your Brain at Work, Rock was in Bangalore on 25 January to present a programme on “The Neuroscience of Leadership, Coaching and Mentoring” to a group of corporate leaders.

Poring Over Einstein's Brain | Inside NOVA | PBS | The Amazing Brain | Scoop.it

"Albert Einstein died in 1955, but not before leaving science one more gift—his brain. Pathologist Thomas Stoltz Harvey removed and preserved Einstein's after conducting an autopsy, and researchers have been studying it ever since, hoping to discover anything that may have lead to the physicist's genius."

 

Why was Einstein so smart? Newly discovered images of his brain are helping to answer that question.
