Commonly referred to as Goldfish Memory Syndrome, it’s estimated up to a third of women find it almost impossible to retain and remember new information. We all have gray matter in our brain, and it’s this that controls information processing and memory function. But if not nurtured properly or unstimulated, the gray matter in the brain can lose its sharpness, causing the individual to become less alert. Unable to focus properly and remember certain things, if your gray matter loses its potency you may find
You may not realize it, but what you say may affect your well-being more profoundly than you think. The words and phrases you use can either boost or destroy your health. Research by famed German psychotherapist Nossrat Peseschkian supports this theory. It reveals that the negative things we say may introduce illness in our bodies. How Words and Phrases affect our body There is a curious relationship between the words and phrases you use, your emotions and your body. So, how does it play out?
Why are there many smart people who don't like to exercise? By saying smart, we mean people who like to use their brain more than others. This has nothing to do with the level of IQ because even some of the individuals with a low IQ can have a huge passion for solving intellectual tasks. The study which was conducted recently and published in the Journal of Health Psychology is showing some interesting results. People who use their brain more and actually enjoy taking mentally
Brain exercises keep our brain healthy and help prevent mental diseases The brain is the most important part of the human body, and like our body, it too, ages. Since all physicians emphasize on the significance of physical exercises to keep our bodies active, they also encourage brain exercises. Brain exercises not only keep our mind sharp and spirited but also help in keeping our memories crystal clear as we age. If brain cells begin to deteriorate due to lack of healthy activities or exercises,
In the modern world, many people are concerned about their mental health and soundness. Mental soundness is crucial in an individual’s life as it affects the way he or she conducts their daily activities. The fact that music is entertaining makes it one of the best medicines for stress and anxiety. Maintaining a good and healthy mental state improves the science behind moral judgement made by your brain.

Music is everywhere we turn, playing a big part in all of our lives – but how does it really affect our brains and our bodies? “Without music, life would be a mistake” – Friedrich Nietzsche 1. Happy or sad music affects our ability to see neutral faces: Generally, when we hear a sad song, we can identify that it sounds sad and the same goes for happy compositions – but this isn’t because it makes us feel particularly happy or sad, it’s because our brain
A vast array of direct mind control techniques are being announced in the wake of investment from government via the U.S. BRAIN project and Europe’s counterpart the Human Brain Project – all told, billions of dollars are being spent to decode what makes us tick and how to change it. We are being given gadgets that create a brain-computer interface, magnetic manipulation via “neural dust,” high-powered lasers, using light beamed from outside the skull, the implanting and erasure of memories, and even the direct uploading
The concept of free will could be little more than the result of background noise in the brain, according to a recent study. It has previously been suggested that our perceived ability to make autonomous choices is an illusion – and now scientists from the Center for Mind and Brain at the University of California, Davis, have found that free will may actually be the result of electrical activity in the brain. According to the research, published in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, decisions could
