Disrupting your brain

Thu, Jul 28, 2016|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on Disrupting your brain

From Brain Based Biz: When you try an activity that's totally new to you, you are building new neuron pathways in your brain.  Why is this good? If you simply do the same things day to day, you create ruts and routines.  I wanted to learn to play a video game like my grandsons and a physical activity, too. Today, Minecraft is one of the most challenging and problem solving games available and I decided to learn to learn do this as opposed to word games I am used to playing.  Why? Disruptive activity is good for your brain. What is disruption, anyway? · Go to Disrupting your brain →

Your brain performs better when it slows down, with Steven Kotler

Sun, Nov 9, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Your brain performs better when it slows down, with Steven Kotler

From Big Think: Best-selling author Steven Kotler recently visited Big Think to discuss the optimization of consciousness through flow states, a key topic in his recently published book, The Rise of Superman. The best way to describe a flow state is to use the example of practically every action movie released since The Matrix. Experiencing flow is similar to being in "bullet time." Like Keanu Reeves' Neo (though certainly not on his level), a person in flow obtains the ability to keenly hone their focus on the task at hand so that everything else disappears. · Go to Your brain performs better when it slows down, with Steven Kotler →
