“Long-term memory is not stored at the synapse,” said David Glanzman, a senior author of the study, and a UCLA professor of integrative biology and physiology and of neurobiology. “That’s a radical idea, but that’s where the evidence leads. The nervous system appears to be able to regenerate lost synaptic connections. If you can restore the synaptic connections, the memory will come back. It won’t be easy, but I believe it’s possible.”

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 21, 2014 8:49 PM

Learn why it is important to stretch your brain, to try new things (and to fail) and to continue to try and improve. Learn about our "Lizard Brain"  (also known as the amygdala),an important component of our brain that impacts how we learn, but the learning is related to the time when humans hunted in the wild. This part of the brain holds us back in many ways, and although it once protected us now it tends to hold us back.

What can we do about this? The video explores this and discusses some of the ways we can "dance" with this "Lizard Brain" and move from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset. For more information take the time to watch this video.

Why Asking for Help Makes You a Stronger Leader

Why Asking for Help Makes You a Stronger Leader | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
"We’re all imperfect and we all have needs. The weak usually do not ask for help, so they stay weak. If we recognize that we are imperfect, we will ask for help and we will pray for the guidance necessary to bring positive results to whatever we are doing." — John WoodenAsking for help wasn’t something that my parents ingrained in me. Well, that’s how I interpreted their guidance anyway. When they told me repeatedly to be confident, strong, and independent, I assumed that the opposite traits would be a bad thing.For so many of us, the idea of asking for help

Your vocabulary at age 40 depends on how much you read as a teenager

Reading for pleasure as a child has been powerfully linked in research to the development of vocabulary and maths skills up to the age of 16. But does reading still have a part to play in the breadth of our adult vocabulary? Does it matter what kind of books you read, or is it just the amount of reading that counts?

Technology is transforming the way companies do business, creating new risks and opportunities.
Helen Teague's insight:

Post by Catherine Bolgar : The Internet is estimated to have accounted for 21% of economic growth in mature economies from 2006-2011...“The mistake businesses make is they assume technology is the answer,” Mr. Collins says. “Technology merely enables the answer. The answer is how do people interact and react to the world around them. The technology has to support customer demands and needs, even if the customer doesn’t know they need it today. The customer didn’t know what the Internet was until it appeared. Once it appeared it became indispensable.”

Especially  helpful are the steps for companies to take to remain nimble.
