From a training standpoint, creatine is a slam dunk. It’s benefits are backed up from mounds and mounds of science and research. Stronger, faster, longer, and harder. If performance is a goal of yours, then supplementing with creatine is an easy way to instantly get better. _____ But, these benefits don’t stop at the #physical . They extend to the #mental , too. _____ Cells with greater energy requirements, like #neurons , benefit greatly from creatine. Of course, this makes sense because creatine supplementation allows for more effective and efficient #energy turnover in your cells. Up in your noggin, this translates into improved memory, sharper critical thinking, and boosted brain power. _____ So, while most supplements might not be worth their weight in Rice Krispies, #creatine might be even better than we thought...and we always knew it was pretty good. _____ #fitness #fitfam #gymtime #fatloss #leanmuscle #leangains #supplements #muscles #squats #deadlifts #hypertrophy #power #powerlifting #bodybuilding #weightlossjourney #bodytransformation #brainpower #thinking #criticalthinking #brainhealth #healthandwellness #saturday #saturdaynight #weekend
Trolden har vundet en hjernecelle og nu skal der holdes oplæg for klassen om hjernen og neuroner. Han passer forresten meget godt på sin nyerhvervelse, som blev spændt forsvarligt fast på køreturen hjem. ———————————————————— #mormedmere77 #morskab #momlife #morlivet #livetsommor #motherhood #sdu #forskningensdag #etsunderefyn2018 #sundhedstress #hjerneforskning #hjernecelle #neuron #stress #mrscan #huskatstemme #braincell #neurons #anatomy #anatomi #citizenscience #sundhedsforskning #kommendemediciner #radiology #radiologia #radiologi #hjerne #brain #handson #handsonlearning

Stunning stain of a single neuron (blue) within the hippocampus, shared by @mdhealthtips ! . The hippocampus is THE area in the #brain responsible for memory 🌳 H.M., a famous patient in whom the hippocampus was surgically removed in the 1950s as a last-resort treatment for epilepsy, had a then-unpredicted side effect of anterograde amnesia (aka the inability to form new memories) for the rest of his life 😱. As unfortunate as his case was, it was H.M. who taught us the importance of the hippocampus in memory encoding and retrieval. . While we traditionally think of the brain as an area where cells don't divide or regenerate, we now understand the hippocampus to be a unique site where new neurons (aka brain cells) are formed even in adulthood. And the hippocampus operates under a use-it-or-lose-it principle. Keeping our brains active 💪, whether through work, reading, crossword puzzles, playing musical instruments, is correlated with increased hippocampal volume, and similarly (and perhaps unsurprisingly) a lower risk of dementia later in life. .

Neurônios conectando uns aos outros em uma lâmina. Se um número suficiente de neurônios fizerem isso, e da maneira certa, uma mente surgirá. Reserve um momento para pensar em como isso é incrível: a consciência é algo que essa rede de células faz.

Is reading electronically different to reading print? Some experiments have found no difference in comprehension. But in one study, when reading time was self-regulated rather than fixed, participants performed better after reading print. A 2013 US study of university students also found that reading on paper was less likely to encourage multitasking, and that has already been established as a clear advantage when it comes to learning. qbi.uq.edu.au/brain/learning-memory/factors-affecting-learning . . . #brain #neuroscience #science #scientist #research #neurons #instadaily #learning #study #tips #studytips #techonology #reading

Last October, I took an eight week online group course (via Zoom) called “A Change of Mind: Neuroplastic Tools for Healing.” 🧠 Course content was based around the workbook, “Neuroplastic Transformation” by two American pain physicians, Dr. Michael Moskowitz and Dr. Marla Golden. 🧠 The overarching message of this work is that persistent pain can be challenged and defeated by using the same principles that have created it: •What is fired is wired • What you don’t use you lose • When you make them you break them, when you break them you make them (neuropathways). 🧠 Simplified, Moskowitz and Golden’s research shows that there are nine thinking areas of the brain that control our personal experiences of pain and discomfort (prefrontal cortex, anterior cingulate, somatosensory, posterior parietal, supplementary motor, insula, amygdala and posterior cingulate). We can take an ACTIVE, EMPOWERED role and use these conscious parts of our brain to change our experience of pain, rewiring the brain away from pain and discomfort over time. 🧠 Each time pain spikes or intrudes into awareness, we do something to counter stimulate the pain networks. By activating the thinking brain to stimulate other networks, nerve cells are reassigned to these networks and taken from the expanded pain map. We can counter stimulate the nine brain areas using thoughts, images, sensations, memories, soothing emotions (e.g. gratitude, calm, hope), movement and beliefs. Example 1️⃣: cultivate a dose of daily pleasure (counter stimulates pain networks in the amygdala). Personal example: playing with my dog, writing comic verse. Example 2️⃣: Use movement (counter stimulates pain networks in motor cortex). Somatic movement, yoga, tai chi, walking... so many options here! 🧠 REPETITION is the key. And it takes perseverance, patience and TIME. And number one BELIEF. We are adaptable, bioplastic beings. Our brains and overprotective nervous systems have learned pain, and can unlearn it! #neuroplasticity #painscience #centralsensitization #centralsensitisation #persistentpain #painrecovery #somatics #neurons #brainscience #pain #hope #belief #painresearch #movement #brain #brainrewiring
The authors’ findings were based on autopsied hippocampi from 28 previously healthy individuals who had suddenly died, aged 14-79. "We found that older people have similar ability to make thousands of hippocampal new neurons from progenitor cells as younger people do," said lead author Maura Boldrini from Columbia University. The paper in Cell Stem Cell was titled, “Human Hippocampal Neurogenesis Persists throughout Aging.”

“JANUARY OR FEBRUARY 1977 FOLDER 25 [25:1] Following “Mimic” insight: Q: (Written and audio messages are created and sent, either scrambled set-ground or divided into [two] portions and requiring re-linking, the knowledge of which parts to match being akin to the 3-D or superimposed set-ground system unscrambling requiring the depth sense based on the color discrimination of the third eye.) Although it is evident that the information emanated from Zebra (which is my nickname for the mimicking entity), for whom are they intended? Other parts of Zebra? Is this how Zebra maintains itself as a concealed unitary entity? Like nerve impulses within a body, inner information, among the parts. Zebra is body or brain or both. This fits with my noetic impression that we are within Zebra’s body. In our own (micro)body neural signals travel all over—sense impressions, orders to muscles, pain, etc. Our own bodies are alive with messages. So is Zebra, and there is coding (i.e., use of declaratory symbols and cypher).*” Excerpt From The Exegesis of Philip K. Dick Philip K.

I was at a Vistage Worldwide, Inc. talk yesterday where we talked about the need for co-regulation. As I discussed in my TEDx talk, as humans we have mirror neurons in our prefrontal cortex that are outward facing. We are wired to connect with others. There is a direct connection from our mirror neurons to our amygdala, the emotional center in our brain. When we don’t have co-regulation or meaningful social connections, this leads to emotional isolation. Isolation has been shown to have devastating physical consequences on our health.

Re-introduced #egg #yolk 🥚 to Emma today, mixing with avocado, which she loves, and she took a few bites! Egg yolks are a fantastic first food for babies, containing a powerhouse of #nutrients , which baby needs for growth and development 🙌🏻 The whites contain most of the protein, which are more allergenic, so we hold off on giving that to baby for a bit. #choline #omega3 #healthyfat #lowallergen #vitamina #vitaminD #vitaminK #iron #growthanddevelopment #babybrain #fatforfuel #nervoussystem #neurons #freerangeeggs
Repost from @amnacademy using @RepostRegramApp - Electrochemical Communication {ECC} by @amnacademy - The body is electric! Let's delve a bit deeper: - The activation or inhibition of Electrochemical Communication generates an electrical impulse which stimulates the release of chemicals called Neurotransmitters and Neuropeptides - Neurons fire in response to sensory inputs from the environment, such as odours, touch, or light. This constitutes ascending sensory information to the brain - They also fire to control the organs, muscles, and systems of the body as sensory - motor outputs. This constitutes descending control from the brain to the body! - Bioelectricity is far more than an energy source confined to the digital action of the nervous system - #amnacademy #bioelectricity #neurology #functionalneurology #functionalfitness #biohack #brain #mindbody #cells #neurons #personaltraining #personaltrainers #centralnervousystem #cns #nervoussystem #osteopath #chiropractor #braintraining #neurotransmitters #electricbody

🧠👁👥Mirror neurons are one of the most important discoveries in the last decade of neuroscience. These are a variety of visuospatial neurons which indicate fundamentally about human social interaction. Essentially, mirror neurons respond to actions that we observe in others. The interesting part is that mirror neurons fire in the same way when we actually recreate that action ourselves. Apart from imitation, they are responsible for myriad of other sophisticated human behavior and thought processes. Defects in the mirror neuron system are being linked to disorders like autism. This review is a brief introduction to the neurons that shaped our civilization.

A great photo of a Posterior Fossa Ependymoma ! This is a tumor that arises from glial cells in the brain or spinal cord. Ependymomas are found throughout the central nervous system in the supratentorial (top of the head), posterior fossa (back of the head) and spinal compartments. These tumors affect both children and adults. They are thought to develop from certain cells that normally mature into ependymal cells. Ependymal cells line the ventricles (fluid-filled spaces in the brain) and the central canal of the spinal cord. Sometimes, ependymoma tumor cells can spread in the fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. . Imaged above is an infratentorial ependymoma found within the posterior fossa. This specific tumor lies below the tentorium cerebella (a portion of dura mater separating the cerebral hemispheres from the cerebellum), and for that reason it is classified as “infratentorial.” These tumors are usually grade 2. Surgical resection and radiation therapy are the most common methods of treatment. .

What a great reading space by @toy_ideas. This could be used in your home or classroom and can serve as both a reading space or quiet, cozy space. Creating a quiet space for kids is essential to their well-being. Many times kids want and need to be in a calming space to decompress their over-stimulating worlds. . #growingbrilliance #toinspireone #quietspace #teepee #children #neurons #geniuskids #smartkids #read

You Share Everything With Your Close Friends. Even Brain Waves There's a number of reasons why friendships blossom between certain individuals, from loving the same football team to having the same sense of humour. However, a recent study has claimed that friends may also share similar brain waves. Dr Carolyn Parkinson, a cognitive scientist at the University of California, and a couple of fellow researchers from Dartmouth College presented individuals with a series of video clips. They used functional magnetic resonance imaging to scan the participants’ brains while they were watching the clips in order to determine whether their neural responses were similar to those of their friends. The neural response patterns evoked by the videos — on subjects as diverse as the dangers of college football, astronaut’s view of the earth, a homemade wedding film, a documentary about a baby sloth sanctuary and a comedy skit from Saturday Night Live called “Ew!” — proved so congruent among friends, compared to patterns seen among people who were not friends, that the researchers could predict the strength of two people’s social bond based on their brain scans alone.
