Is Your Head full of Plastic?

Pay Attention to Your Life, Your Memory Depends on It

The mystics say to "be present", and now science gives us a good reason why.  The basics of neuroplasticity explain that focused attention combined with experience enable us to create neural maps.  This means when we pay attention to the…


Smoking, Memory Loss, and Aging Your Brain

According to Dr. Eric Braverman, author of Younger Brain, Sharper Mind, we unknowingly effect our brain speed and impair our memory recall circuits.  "A 2004 study in the Journal Neurology showed that over a 5-year period, memory decline for smokers…


Your Cranky Mood Could Be Because Your Brain is Bored

Hebb's Law states that neurons that fire together wire together.  This is the basis of neuroplasticity--our ability to rewire our brains, behaviors, moods and thoughts.  This happens when our brains are signaled to pay attention, like when we're learning something…

Feed your head! The body ages as brain speed declines. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter associated with learning and neural firing speed.   "When the brain loses acetylcholine, it sends a death code to the organs and hormone-producing glands of the…


Speed up Your Brain Processing

Speed your brain processing and decrease your stress! Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in keeping healthy the myelin sheath--fatty substance--that surrounds our neurons. When this sheath is healthy it conducts neural impulses faster, making our brain function…
