There’s been a buzz about neuroplasticity in popular scientific culture of late, and perhaps it’s time to get specific.
With the advent of CAT, and MRI, there have been a host of neuroscientific reports based on experimentation in many areas of better understanding the brain. There is still much to be uncovered and vetted, and one could also argue that focusing on the brain and making claims about human nature as a result, may be merely trying to make it seem more valid and dramatic when we talk about “science” to back it up.
Any time a scientist or journalist refers to neuroplasticity, you want to ask what are they specifically referring to, and if they can’t tell you than they are probably blowing smoke, or don’t know what they are talking about.
I want to talk about neuroplasticity from a couple of very specific angles.
The first point is, that during most of the 20th century, the general consensus among neuroscientists was that brain structure is relatively unchanging after a critical period during early childhood. This belief has been challenged by findings revealing that many aspects of the brain remain plastic even into adulthood. Decades of research have now shown that substantial changes occur in the lowest neocortical processing areas, and that these changes can profoundly alter the pattern of neuronal activation in response to experience. Neuroscientific research indicates that experience can actually change both the brain’s physical structure (anatomy) and functional organization (physiology). Neuroscientists are currently engaged in a reconciliation of critical period studies demonstrating the immutability of the brain after development with the more recent research showing how the brain can, and does, change.
In this series, I am going to share some of the latest information about the brain available, with you, and begin to point to the areas where and how elite performers are putting their attention, in order to enhance brain function and upgrade specific, as well as overall brain function, particularly in the area of behavior relating to performance.
In essence suggesting their is evidence that tuning specific areas of your brain using specific protocols have shown dramatic results in many areas of life performance, as well as improving cognitive function, and the sensual result of generating awareness of well-being, and subsequent improvement of lifestyle based experiences, like career, relationship, and attitudes about health, wealth, success, and satisfaction.
Come along for the ride……..and please add your comments as we go. See you soon.
All the best,
P.S. Because I have found this information to be so compelling, and important, I’ll be teaching it in depth to those who enroll now in the Weekend Course starting Sept. 29th.This will change the way you think about yourself, vhow you can become the person you want to be, and the way you interface with your environment. You can find all the information here………………..You’ll get this and a lot more when you click here and find all about how to do that now.
