What are You Feeding Your Neurons?

I'll bet you're thinking that your neurons, aka brain cells, are in your brain.  That would make sense, but that's only partly true.  We have many different types of neurons and they are located in the brain, spinal cord and…


It Takes a Village — a Community of Neurons

To be our animated best selves requires us to be in a graceful electro-chemical choreography. All of our actions, thoughts, desires, emotions and behaviors are physiologically the result of networked neural activity in the brain.  One neuron's "voice" alone does not…


Fear: One of the Strongest Brain Mapping Emotions

Fear is one of the strongest mapping emotions in the brain.  We have approximately 100 billion neurons in the brain mapping to thoughts, behaviors, patterns, and physiology.  About five times more of those neurons are allocated to threat detection or…


Wake Up or Die More Quickly Trying

Wake up or you might continue to experience each day primed for disease and negativity.  Our prefrontal cortex regulates attention and thoughts with vast amounts of neural connections and a system of arousal and neurotransmitters. If we take no action,…


There is Power in the Pause

When we are moving too fast, speeding ahead without pause or breath, we can not integrate the lessons and experiences we've had.  Without the pause, perhaps we do not assimilate to give our spirits time to expand with seniority.  Our…


Brushing Your Teeth to Keep Your Brain Healthy?

Neuroplasticity is our ability to rewire new brain connections, learn new things, and create new neurons.  All of this magic keeps us cognitively young, sharp and engaged in life.  A key part of this process is long term potentiation (LTP).…


Thoughts Shaping Your World

Neuroplasticity is the ability of our mind to rewire itself. It can manifest as a changing of the strength of the connection between neurons, by adding or removing connections, or by adding new cells. An amazing catalyst for all of…


Who’s in the Mirror?

In neural imaging studies done in 1996, it was found that viewing images of fearful, stressed, or angered faces activated the viewer's fear response in the amygdala. Take a look in the mirror today and make note of the expression…
