KEYS TO ENHANCING BRAIN FUNCTION 🧠✨
In this incredible video, we see REAL neurons of the brain making new connections! This happens in our brain anytime we form a new habit, think a new thought, or learn something for the first time! If you look closely, you will see these neurons stretching to communicate with one another & creating new synapses! According to the latest in The Journal of Neuroscience, the discovery that neural stem cells exist throughout life in the adult brain & can renew & give rise to new neurons, astrocytes, & oligodendrocytes (just as in the developing brain) has now begun to explain just how resilient & infinitely powerful our brain’s potential truly is! It turns out that the process of neurogenesis (the growth & development of nervous tissue) does not diminish with age in a healthy human brain & it is occurring right now with every thought you are having! Our brain’s plasticity, & adaptability can be accomplished by “strengthening synapses” - meaning we can ‘practice’ improving in aspects of our life we may be deficient in & overtime - reverse or complete change/ grow into a newer & more improved self!! The concept of ‘neuroplasticity’ now helps to explain how different techniques & methods (e.g., physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, meditation, yoga & mindfulness practices) enable individuals to recover from stroke, injury, & birth abnormalities, overcome autism, ADD & ADHD, learning disabilities & other brain deficits, pull out of depression & addictions, & reverse obsessive compulsive patterns!!! Neuroplasticity has far-reaching implications & possibilities for almost every aspect of human life & culture from education to medicine. Can you feel yourself making a new connection this very second??? Happy Monday ladies & gentlemen! Follow @medspiration
