Picture this: our brains, the epicentre of our thoughts and actions, have the power to rewire themselves, forging new connections and generating fresh neurons. Isn't that mind-blowing? Neuroplasticity, in essence, refers to the remarkable capability of the nervous system to alter its activity in response to both i ..read more

Confidence is the feeling or belief that instils faith or reliability in someone or something. It is a quality we use to assign certainty to our abilities, self-awareness as well as trust.

Written By: Beth Poultney Are you, YOU, when you’re hungry? Probably not. A tummy rumble can inspire fury, I’m sure you’re familiar with the term ‘hangry’.

While this saves time and energy, it may be particularly frustrating to us when we cannot remember where we left our keys that we had in our hands minutes ago,but the “Bathroom Bizarre” jingle seems to be playing on a loop in our heads for days on end. How the brain decides which memories to store and, further, which of those memories are easier to recall, is critical knowle ..read more

This is because the meal you had with a good friend was most likely a positive, strong emotional experience for you. It’s possible you walked away with a better sense of well-being, or you were relieved to have vented about something weighing on you. Maybe you can even remember the taste of the dessert you ate while you reminisced about a fond memor ..read more
