What’s Happening With Our Bodies When We Join In Song?

It’s probably inevitable that when you put a bunch of self-confessed musical theater nerds in the same room, you’ll hear a lot of talk about feelings, but there’s something else happening here when they cover their favorite numbers. Professor Sarah Wilson, who is a clinical psychologist and pioneered the field of music neuroscience research in her native Australia, describes this as an internal therapy tool, engaging several regions of the brain simultaneously. Wilson describes a “singing network”, engaging areas of the brain responsible for complex motor activity, auditory processing, as well ..read more

Hands on the Mediator. The Hand-Brain Connection

by Isabel Pastor Guzman

The human hand – considerably more developed than those of our closest primate ancestors, is one of the great marvels of our evolution. There isn’t another creature on the planet whose hands have the same knack for grasping and manipulation – and the opposable thumb may have given us the upper hand when it came to outlasting the hominids around us. Push forward several centuries and we’re doing a lot less intricate work with our hands than we might have in a bygone age. A 3-D printer means less hours spent hammering together a suit of armor. In fact, even reading the newspaper nowadays just ta ..read more

The Brain on Pregnancy and Labor

It’s hardly a secret that both being pregnant and the act of giving birth can change not only a person’s outlook on life, but also their brain, but the question to neuroscience has always been how different, exactly. According to a recent study, however, it’s also a matter of “when.”  The authors established that the brain can look different depending on whether or not it has been examined during the pregnancy of an individual or after that person has given birth. The new research is helping to disentangle a number of the mysteries that have been ignored for a considerable period of time ..read more

The Persistence of the Mind: How the Brain Can Outlast the Body
Brain World Magazine » Science
by Isabel Pastor Guzman
2M ago
It has become fairly cliched to say that time heals all wounds – attesting to the power of forgetfulness when it comes to tragedy. For better or worse, the passing days and years erode trauma done both to the mind and the physical landscape of the world – turning battles and tragedies into distant memories. There are, all too often, times in which the memories long outlast the places we’ve been. The human brain, it turns out, can be surprisingly resistant to the ravages of time – preserving itself even beyond the needs of the body it leads. This year, a new study made a catalog of human brains ..read more

Is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Just All In Our Heads?

Over the last few years, a body of research has grown looking into the nature of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) –– in particular, myalgic encephalomyelitis/chronic fatigue syndrome (ME/CFS), a disorder defined by several consistently recurring symptoms: tiredness despite not doing unusually strenuous activity; that is not relieved by a consistent sleep schedule; and then is either causing thinking or memory problems and/or symptoms becoming more severe when standing – a condition itself known as orthostatic intolerance. The degrees to which people suffer from CFS often vary – there are severe ..read more

40-HZ Therapy: Stimulating neural activity at Gamma frequency

A sudden flickering of light and a quick, stumbling buzz of noise could in fact have our answer to beating Alzheimer’s disease—with a recent study in lab mice offering insight as to how these sensory cues could work in an unconventional therapy for humans. This noninvasive brain-stimulation technology makes use of a sort of audiovisual disco – 40-hertz stimuli occurring in rhythms, has been designed to bulk up the brain’s health by stimulating neural activity at a similar “gamma” frequency. The patient gets their therapy from the comfort of their own home, putting on headsets and sitting by an ..read more

Dopamine Flow: How the Brain Processes Rewards

When Sigmund Freud first presented his theories of the superego and the id to an unsuspecting world at the dawn of the 20th century, it quickly met with an outcry – controversial even in the very young pioneering field that was psychology. Not only were we just some species that was next in line, the latest subset of primates, as biology of the day would tell us, but we don’t even know why we do half the things we do. Things have gotten a bit more sophisticated over the last century, as the beginning of the 21st century saw the growing field of neuroscience make some even more surprising disco ..read more

Why Sleep Is So Important For Your Brain
Brain World Magazine » Science

Henry David Thoreau is quoted as saying, “Happiness is like a butterfly: the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.” I would revise this statement by replacing “happiness” with “sleep” — it seems the more ardently you pursue some shut-eye, the harder it becomes to fall asleep. Advertisements More and more Americans are not getting the recommended seven to eight hours of zzz’s a night. Indeed, “About one-third of people living in first world countries are required to wake up two hours before t ..read more
