  • Title: Cognitive Science | Brainfitness For Life
    Descriptive info: By.. admin.. , posted on.. juillet 31, 2013 at 2:33.. ,.. Posted in.. Commentaires fermés.. And yet the primary function of the memory is to forget: the brain is constantly parsing recollections that are important and useful and those that are unwanted , excluding those memories that prevent us from concentrating on the important tasks at hand.. Haven t you ever dreamed of controlling this process, of deleting a particular moment or a painful or embarrassing situation from your memory? A study dating from October 2012 has, for the first time, explored the cognitive processes underlying the phenomenon of forgetting: Roland Benoit and Michael Anderson (Cambridge University) have shown that there are two mechanisms responsible for our ability to forget: the first operates by deactivating the mnesic system, and the other by replacing the forgotten memory with another.. The suppression of a memory results from the inhibition, by the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (which is involved in deliberate searches for information), of the activity of the hippocampus, the essential cerebral structure in the process associated with rememorisation of past events.. Another study using fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) dating from 2004 and conducted by Michael Anderson (University of Oregon) and John Gabrieli (Stanford University) showed that the areas of the brain activated in voluntary forgetting are the same as those used to halt a physical action: the same processes of control and inhibition are involved when we try to deliberately block the emergence of a memory, and when we deliberately interrupt a physical movement.. These results seem to indicate that forgetting is not merely a passive phenomenon, but that it is possible for us to filter our memories using voluntary mnesic control mechanisms.. at 2:20..

  • Title: 8 Unusual Facts About Your Brain | Brainfitness For Life
    Descriptive info: 1.. No rest for your brain.. Believe it or not, although rest is quite important for normal cognitive function, your brain does not slow down when you go to sleep.. On the contrary, it actually becomes quite active.. The science of sleep is still being explored but one popular theory is that the brain does its most important work during sleep – routing and organizing all of the important information from the day into memory.. In fact, our brain is so active at night it secretes hormones that immobilize our bodies during sleep so that we don’t injure ourselves while attempting to act upon any of the ideas going on in our head while we sleep!.. 2.. Your brain is a little powerhouse.. Our brains are full of neurons, a common estimate is that each of us has about 100 billion of them.. Whenever we conjure up a thought it is because electrical signals are transmitted between these neurons along our neural pathways.. As long as we are alive, this process never stops.. Each neuron in your body generates a small amount of electricity.. Multiply that energy by 100 billion and you will have enough electricity to power a small light bulb.. The next time you see a light bulb used as a metaphor for a new idea you will now know why.. 3.. Your brain is no Prius™.. Although the brain makes up only a small part of your body, it can burn up to one-fifth of the calories you use in a day.. This calorie expenditure is primarily used for cell-health maintenance and to fuel the electrical impulses that neurons use to communicate with each other.. This could be why a long day at the office can sometimes make us feel as though we just ran a marathon.. 4.. Yawning keeps your brain cool.. Normally, we associate  ...   Your brain is divided into two sides, but for reasons science doesn’t completely understand, the left hemisphere of your brain controls the right side of your body, while the right hemisphere of your brain controls the left side of your body.. As discussed in our past post.. 9 Differences Between the Male and Female Brain.. , many men are sharply left-brain dominant, while women tend to be more evenly balanced between left and right-brain processing.. Women are therefore thought to be slightly more intuitive and better communicators then men, whereas men tend to be more task-oriented.. 7.. Your brain feels no pain.. Although what you sense and feel is processed in your brain, the brain itself cannot feel pain.. This is because your brain lacks pain receptors.. Headaches come from pain receptors in your head, hence the name headaches and not brainaches.. This fact also assists neurosurgeons perform complicated brain surgeries while a patient is still awake.. 8.. You are constantly changing the structure of your brain.. In our post.. 7 Myths About the Human Brain.. we stated that our brains change in various areas, but the wrinkles we gain as our brain develop remain the same until the day we die.. A few of you wrote in that in some cases wrinkles can change.. Less contentious is the fact that as we learn new information through cognitive engagement we form new neural pathways and build our cognitive reserve (one of our best defenses against.. brain decline.. ).. Similar to the way your muscle grows stronger and more adept with use, your brain’s structure strengthens every time it is engaged in a meaningful way.. Want to build some new neural pathways right now? Try out some of the.. brain games.. at HAPPYneuron and start enhancing your cognitive reserve right now.. octobre 1, 2010 at 8:17.. Comments..

  • Title: 5 Strategies to Improve Memory | Brainfitness For Life
    Descriptive info: Here are five methods to improve memory based on scientific research:.. 1).. Sleep.. Sleep has long been identified by scientists as the state in which our bodies optimize and consolidate newly acquired information and store it as memory.. A new study in Nature Reviews Neuroscience.. provides further evidence that getting enough restful sleep is a key ingredient to improving memory.. 2).. Nutrition.. It is a no-brainer that poor nutrition will adversely affect your memory (pun intended).. There is a strong body of scientific evidence that a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, and anti-oxidants is important to brain health.. One new study shows that blueberry juice might actually improve memory in older adults.. In fact, the popular brain scientist.. Amen.. calls blueberries “brain berries” because of the accumulated research on the positive benefits of this fruit.. 3).. Relax.. De-stressing and meditation are also scientifically accepted ways to improve your memory.. In a well publicized study about meditation.. , a strong case was made that the daily practice of meditation thickened the parts of the brain s cerebral cortex responsible for decision making, attention, and memory.. 4).. Physical Exercise.. A recent study out of the University of  ...   in the face of extremely stressful circumstances ”.. 5).. Cognitive Stimulation.. Lastly, it is no secret that regularly participating in brain training helps improve memory.. In a study I published about HAPPYneuron.. , our users results were analyzed after completing 500 exercises over 18 weeks.. On average, HAPPYneuron users improved their memory by 13.. 9 percent, with an overall improvement of 15.. 6 percent across all cognitive skills.. In short, engaging your memory through practice by playing.. brain games at HAPPYneuron.. has been scientifically shown to improve memory.. Tips to implement these five simple memory improving strategies:.. » Get to bed a little earlier each night to get more sleep.. » Start eating more foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, and anti-oxidants such as fish, avocados, walnuts, and blueberries.. » Get a book on meditation and/or sign-up for a class and try it out.. » If you are not already exercising at least three times a week, start going for 20 minute walks until you build up enough fitness to expand your exercise regimen.. »..
