Is it worth it? How could it be MORE worth it? http://www.ted.com/conversations/44/we_spend_3_billion_hours_a_wee.html "Currently there are more than half a billion people worldwide playing computer and videogames at least an hour a day -- and 183 million in the U.S. alone." Habitual action video game playing is associated with caudate nucleus-dependent navigational strategies http://rspb.royalsocietypublishing.org/content/282/1808/20142952 "The habitual playing of video games is associated with increased grey matter and activity in the striatum." Prefrontal cortex and basal ganglia contributions to visual working memory http://www.pnas.org/content/107/42/18167 "Visual working memory (VWM) is a remarkable skill dependent on the brain's ability to construct and hold an internal representation of the world for later comparison with an external stimulus." No, there is no evidence for a link between video games and Alzheimer's disease http://www.theguardian.com/science/head-quarters/2015/may/20/no-there-is-no-evidence-for-a-link-between-video-games-and-alzheimers-disease "Another day, another ridiculous headline about the apparently disastrous consequences of playing video games on the brain." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

Brain games: Some video games improve memory, cognition
 
02:03
Neurobiologists at the University of California Irvine recently published a study shows evidence that some video games actually improve memory function. RT’s Manuel Rapalo explains the study, and why certain games with immersive gameplay can boost memory by about 12 percent, while two-dimensional games do not seem to have that affect.

We've all been told that playing video games can distract you from school but is this true? Do video games affect academic performance? How Video Games Change Your Brain - http://bit.ly/2aOpUnc Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: Internet Usage And Educational Outcomes Among 15-Year-Old Australian Students http://ijoc.org/index.php/ijoc/article/view/5586/1742 "Children in rich countries are using the internet for social networking and gaming at very high rates, particularly in Australia. This study addresses whether these activities affect educational achievement in mathematics, reading, and science using the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's 2012 Program for International Student Assessment data set. The results suggest that using online social networks reduces academic achievement. Conversely, playing online games increases scores." Young Children Who Play Video Games May Experience Improved Social Skills, Intelligence, And School Performance http://www.medicaldaily.com/young-children-video-games-social-skills-school-performance-377142 "The benefits of playing video games have become clearer than ever in recent years, allowing them to shed their negative reputation for stoking violence and antisocial behavior. Studies have pointed to their ability to improve cognitive function in multiple sclerosis patients as well as how we navigate the world. And now, new research shows that spending lots of time playing Super Mario at an early age benefits kids' mental health by making them more social, better in school, and overall more intelligent." Video Games And Aggressive Thoughts, Feelings, And Behavior In The Laboratory And In Life http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10794380 "Two studies examined violent video game effects on aggression-related variables. Study 1 found that real-life violent video game play was positively related to aggressive behavior and delinquency. The relation was stronger for individuals who are characteristically aggressive and for men. Academic achievement was negatively related to overall amount of time spent playing video games. In Study 2, laboratory exposure to a graphically violent video game increased aggressive thoughts and behavior. In both studies, men had a more hostile view of the world than did women." ____________________ DNews is dedicated to satisfying your curiosity and to bringing you mind-bending stories & perspectives you won't find anywhere else!

Can a video game make you less distracted? Neuroscientists at UCSF think so. Dr. Adam Gazzaley and his team at the Neuroscape project have been incubating games that could possibly improve a person’s brain function, and a company called Akili is trying to push these games through the FDA approval process to turn them into "prescriptions." In this episode of Next Level, Lauren Goode visits the UCSF labs and tries the games herself.

9 Proofs You Can Increase Your Brain Power
 
05:28
The human brain is probably the most mysterious organ in our body. Scientists keep learning new facts about its work, but it still hides lots of secrets. There are a few simple ways to boost your intellect and improve your brain power, and they will surely surprise you! TIMESTAMPS Chronic lack of sleep worsens memory 0:40 Prolonged stress destroys the brain 1:07 Love and hate have a lot in common 1:29 The brain is sensitive to dehydration 1:53 Pregnancy changes the brain’s structure 2:13 The abundance of sugar reduces the ability to learn 2:39 Romantic love and maternal feelings are very similar 3:25 Painting improves the work of the brain 3:58 Reading trains the brain 4:33 SUMMARY - During a full night’s sleep, brain cells remove toxic compounds dangerous to our brain. - A decrease in memory, in the ability to learn, in self-control — these are the consequences that chronic stress is fraught with.  - British scientists found out that love and hate originate in similar brain areas.  - Our brain is almost 80% water. - Scientists proved that pregnancy reduces the amount of gray matter in the brain areas responsible for social cognition and the ability to understand other people.  - The abundance of fructose in the diet slows down the brain and reduces its ability to learn, remember information, and concentrate.  - According to brain activity, romantic relationships and maternal feelings are very similar, but there are differences as well. - A study showed that painting and contemplation of works of art improve the interaction between brain areas while slowing its aging. - Oxford scientists proved that the process of reading trains the cognitive abilities of the brain. It also activates areas that aren’t used at other times.

Video Games Damage The Brain's Frontal Lobe - D13 Watchmen
 
23:32
The frontal cortex of the brain does not mature until the age of 30. "Gray matter atrophy: Multiple studies have shown atrophy (shrinkage or loss of tissue volume) in gray matter areas (where “processing” occurs) in internet/gaming addiction (Zhou 2011, Yuan 2011, Weng 2013,and Weng 2012). Areas affected included the important frontal lobe, which governs executive functions, such as planning, planning, prioritizing, organizing, and impulse control (“getting stuff done”). Volume loss was also seen in the striatum, which is involved in reward pathways and the suppression of socially unacceptable impulses. A finding of particular concern was damage to an area known is the insula, which is involved in our capacity to develop empathy and compassion for others and our ability to integrate physical signals with emotion. Aside from the obvious link to violent behavior, these skills dictate the depth and quality of personal relationships." Fox,CNN,MSNBC,ABC all use NLP techniques on their viewers. Television Programming the unaware. (Neuro Linguistic Programming) See how it's done. Turn that T.V. off and study the KJV bible. Let God give you what you need* https://youtu.be/3rbussqP7po PRAYER TO LEAD A LOST PERSON TO CHRIST Dear heavenly Father, I admit that I'm a sinner, I confess with my mouth and believe in my heart that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, He died on the cross, arose 3 days later, He sits at the right hand of the Father, I ask him to forgive my sins, come into my heart, save me in the day of trouble, keep me holy, and guide me with every step, in Jesus name Amen. (Get on FIRE for Jesus people. The Lord will REJECT you if you are a luke warm christian) Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. PRODUCE FOR God’s kingdom. GET BUSY FOR God. Matthew 7:19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. (Don’t stand in front of Christ empty handed with no souls under your belt on judgment day. It’s the Job of EVERY christian to lead atleast 1 person to the Lord.) 24 Then he which had received the one talent came and said, Lord, I knew thee that thou art an hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, and gathering where thou hast not strawed: 25 And I was afraid, and went and hid thy talent in the earth: lo, there thou hast that is thine. 26 His lord answered and said unto him, Thou wicked and slothful servant, thou knewest that I reap where I sowed not, and gather where I have not strawed: 27 Thou oughtest therefore to have put my money to the exchangers, and then at my coming I should have received mine own with usury. 28 Take therefore the talent from him, and give it unto him which hath ten talents. 29 For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. 30 And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Joe Dispenza, D.C., studied biochemistry at Rutgers University in New Brunswick, N.J. He also holds a BS degree with an emphasis in Neuroscience. Dr. Dispenza also received his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree at Life University in Atlanta, Georgia, graduating magna cum laude. Over the past decade, Dr. Dispenza has lectured in 24 different countries on six continents educating people about the role and function of the human brain. He has taught thousands of people how to re-program their thinking through scientifically proven neuro-physiologic principles. As a result, this information has taught many individuals to reach their specific goals and visions by eliminating self-destructive habits. His approach, taught in a very simple method, creates a bridge between true human potential and the latest scientific theories of neuroplasticity. He explains how thinking in new ways, as well as changing beliefs, can literally rewire one's brain. The premise of his work is founded in his total conviction that every person on this planet has within them, the latent potential of greatness and true unlimited abilities. His first book, Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind connects the subjects of thought and consciousness with the brain, the mind, and the body. The book explores "the biology of change." That is, when we truly change our mind, there is a physical evidence of change in the brain. As an author of several scientific articles on the close relationship between the brain and the body, Dr. Dispenza ties information together to explain the roles these functions play in physical health and disease. His DVD release of Evolve Your Brain: The Science of Changing Your Mind, which was filmed in Australia, is based on the book and looks at the ways in which the human brain can be used to affect reality through the mastery of thought. He also sits as an invited editorial advisor of Explore Magazine. In his research into spontaneous remissions, Dr. Dispenza has found similarities in people who have experienced so-called miraculous healings, showing that they have actually changed their mind, which then changed their health. http://www.drjoedispenza.com/ To support the juicy living tour and to watch more video interviews, visit http://www.JuicyLivingTour Donate now to support the Juicy Living Tour at http://juicylivingtour.com/support-the-juicy-tour/donate-now/ Stay tuned on the Juicy Living Tour and where it is right now in the world from Lilou's facebook fan page at http://facebook.com/liloumacewebtv

Your brains on action games: Daphne Bavelier at TEDxCHUV
 
19:02
Surprisingly, playing what most of society perceives as potentially harmful games results into long lasting beneficial effects on brain and behavior; in contrast, multimedia tasking an activity cherished by our society has detrimental impacts. Clearly the effect of media use are far from intuitive! Daphne Bavelier is an internationally-recognized expert on how humans learn. In particular, she studies how the brain adapts to changes in experience, either by nature - for example, deafness - or by training - for example, playing video games.  Initially trained in Biology at the 'Ecole Normale Superieure de Paris', she then received a PhD in Brain and Cognitive Sciences from MIT and trained in human brain plasticity at the Salk Institute.  Her work shows that playing fast-paced, action-packed entertainment video games typically thought to be mind-numbing actually benefits several aspects of behavior.  Exploiting this counterintuitive finding, her lab now investigates how new media, such as video games, can be leveraged to foster learning and brain plasticity. About TEDx: In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.

The positive effects of video gaming may also be useful in therapeutic interventions targeting psychiatric disorders. To investigate how video games affect the brain, scientists in Berlin asked 23 adults (mean age: 24) to play the video game "Super Mario 64" on a portable Nintendo XXL console over a period of two months for 30 minutes a day. A control group did not play video games. Brain regions showing a significant increase in gray-matter volume post-test (credit: S. Kühn et al./Molecular Psychiatry) In comparison to the control group, the video gaming group showed increases of gray matter in the right hippocampus, right prefrontal cortex and the cerebellum, measured using MRI. These brain regions are involved in functions such as spatial navigation, memory formation, strategic planning, and fine motor skills of the hands. These changes were more pronounced the more the participants wanted to play the video game. "While previous studies have shown differences in brain structure of video gamers, the present study can demonstrate the direct causal link between video gaming and a volumetric brain increase. "This proves that specific brain regions can be trained by means of video games", says study leader Simone Kühn, senior scientist at the Center for Lifespan Psychology at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development.

Are you 'left brain' or 'right brain'? Do you know the difference? Keep practicing with our FREE Brain Tune Course: http://memory.foundation/brain-tune You've probably heard that people are supposed to be one or the other and, in a way, there is some evidence that each of the two hemispheres of the brain tend to be activated for different kinds of tasks. Your Right brain for things that engage your your creative side and Left brain for actions that require reasoning and logic. A 'Right-brain' person tends to be more relaxed, artistic, spontaneous and imaginative. A 'Left brain' person is often busy, systematic, notices details and has an orderly, common-sense approach to life. But the truth is, of course, that EVERY memory task works better if ALL areas of the brain are used. This exercise helps you practise using both sides of the brain. Try it several times!

Video Games and Electrodes Planted Inside Player's Brain
 
01:31
Using direct human brain recordings, a research team from the University of Pennsylvania, Drexel University, the University of California, Los Angeles, and Thomas Jefferson University has identified a new type of cell in the brain that helps people to keep track of their relative location while navigating an unfamiliar environment. The "grid cell," which derives its name from the triangular grid pattern in which the cell activates during navigation, is distinct among brain cells because its activation represents multiple spatial locations. This behavior is how grid cells allow the brain to keep track of navigational cues such as how far you are from a starting point or your last turn. This type of navigation is called path integration. The research was led by Michael Kahana, a professor of psychology in Penn's School of Arts and Sciences, and his former graduate student Joshua Jacobs, now an assistant professor in Drexel's School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems, along with Itzhak Fried, professor of neurosurgery at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. Their study was published in the journal Nature Neuroscience. "It is critical that this grid pattern is so consistent because it shows how people can keep track of their location even in new environments with inconsistent layouts," Jacobs said. The researchers were able to discern these cells because they had the rare opportunity to study brain recordings of epilepsy patients with electrodes implanted deep inside their brains as part of their treatment. During brain recording, the 14 study participants played a video game that challenged them to navigate from one point to another to retrieve objects and then recall how to get back to the places where each object was located. The participants used a joystick to ride a virtual bicycle across a wide-open terrain displayed on a laptop by their hospital beds. After participants made trial runs where each of the objects was visible in the distance, they were put back at the center of the map and the objects were made invisible until the bicycle was right in front of them. The researchers then asked the participants to travel to particular objects in different sequences. The team studied the relation between how the participants navigated in the video game and the activity of individual neurons. "Each grid cell responds at multiple spatial locations that are arranged in the shape of a grid," Jacobs said. "This triangular grid pattern thus appears to be a brain pattern that plays a fundamental role in navigation. Without grid cells, it is likely that humans would frequently get lost or have to navigate based only on landmarks. Grid cells are thus critical for maintaining a sense of location in an environment." These cells are not unique among animals — they have been discovered previously in rats ­­— and a 2010 study that used noninvasive brain imaging suggested the existence of the cells in humans. But this is the first positive identification of the human version of these cells. "The present finding of grid cells in the human brain, together with the earlier discovery of human hippocampal 'place cells,' which fire at single locations, provide compelling evidence for a common mapping and navigational system preserved across humans and lower animals," Kahana said. The team's findings also suggest that these grid patterns may in fact be more prevalent in humans than rats because the study found grid cells not only in the entorhinal cortex, where they are observed in rats, but also in a very different brain area, the cingulate cortex. "Grid cells are found in a critical location in the human memory system called the entorhinal cortex," Fried said. "This discovery sheds new light on a region of the brain that is the first to be affected in Alzheimer's disease with devastating effects on memory" The entorhinal cortex is part of the brain that has been studied in Alzheimer's disease research and, according to Jacobs, understanding grid cells could help researchers understand why people with the disease often become disoriented. It could also help them show how to improve brain function in people suffering from Alzheimer's. The research was supported by the National Institutes of Health. Christoph T. Weidemann of Swansea University, Jonathan F. Miller of Drexel, Alec Solway of Princeton University, John F. Burke and Xue-Xin Wei of Penn, Nanthia Suthana of UCLA and Michael R. Sperling and Ashwini D. Sharan of Jefferson also contributed to the study. Video by Kurtis Sensenig Text by Evan Lerner

Cognition Enhancer For Clearer and Faster Thinking - Isochronic Tones (Electronic)
 
30:02
Download as an Mp3 here: http://www.mindamend.com/yt/cognition-enhancer Note: This is the 'Electronic' version. ► You can find all the Cognition Enhancer tracks in this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLveg0IEcZWN6oXPrgpuZWTND4jvPjfRlY ► Subscribe to my channel and be updated with my latest tracks: http://www.youtube.com/user/MindAmend... ► If you are new to this type of audio brainwave entrainment, find out how isochronic tones work and how they compare to binaural beats here: http://www.mindamend.com/brainwave-entrainment/isochronic-tones/ ► There's a 3-hour extended version of this track here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnaaxaAOlPk. HEADPHONES REQUIRED - Note: As this session stimulates each ear with different frequencies, you will need to use headphones to experience the full effect. Alternative background sounds available on MP3 on the above page: Orchestral, Hybrid, World Music, Rain, Brown Noise. What does this track do? This session stimulates Beta, SMR and Alpha, alternating in 2-minute increments to help keep the user relaxed and engaged. Note: SMR (sensorimotor rhythm) relates to the frequency range between 12 - 15Hz. It's associated with sensory processing and motor control. Stimulating this can result in relaxed focus and improved attention. This session speeds up the brain while keeping the left hemisphere dominant (good for attention, concentration, reducing emotional response and hyperactivity). ADD and similar disorders are often characterized by "slow-wave" EEG patterns, particularly in the left frontal region. This session stimulates the left brain hemisphere with Beta frequencies and the right with SMR. Can it be used to help with studying? Yes and if you read through the many comments about this track, you'll see that many people have successfully used it for studying. You can either listen to it while you are studying, to get your brain into a good mental state when you need it. Or if you are someone that gets a bit distracted by music while studying, listen to it just before you begin. How Loud Should The Volume Be? Set the volume at a level you feel comfortable with. It should be loud enough to hear the isochronic tones, but not so loud that it's uncomfortable for you. Somewhere in the middle is my recommendation. How To Use This? Use this session in the morning or afternoon, to train your brain for better cognition, such as clearer and faster thinking. You can either sit somewhere quiet and comfortable with your eyes closed and give your brain a nice workout, or you can also listen to this while doing an activity that requires a boost in concentration, like studying. How long should you listen for to get a good effect? It takes around 5 minutes for your brainwaves to fall in step with the tones and become entrained. It then takes time to be guided along the frequency range used in the track. Listening to about half way through is the minimum in my opinion, but 30 minutes is the optimum length to listen for. ® Copyright MindAmend.com

Top 10 Tips to Boost Your Brain Function
 
05:36
10. Social Connections Man is a social animal and requires healthy social relations to survive. Being socially active is good for the brain. Those with many friends are less likely to develop dementia or depression than those who lead lonely lives. While online networking is good, it doesn’t match socially connecting in the real world, where all our senses are used. Hang out with your friends or take a walk, often with your significant other. 9. Be Ambidextrous Being ambidextrous has its perks. Have you ever thought of brushing your teeth with the other hand than the one you normally use? What about writing? Of course you will face some difficulty at first. But by doing these things, you are breaking your routine and teaching the brain to do things differently. There is nothing else your brain loves, than doing new things. It stimulates the brain and pushes it to form new connections, improve its efficiency. 8. Listen to Music Ever heard of the Mozart Effect? Essentially it says that listening to classical music can improve brain power. Whether it is true or not, music certainly has some magical powers. Researchers have shown that certain songs can help associating memories. Also it helps with cognitive functioning and increased concentration. In various studies, scientists found out that those who regularly listened to classical music performed better in solving puzzles and IQ tests. So, tune into some Mozart, Beethoven or Bach while reading or working out. 7. Meditation Brain hates stress. One of the best ways to keep your head free from worrying thoughts is meditation. There are different types of meditations and of them, the easiest is to close your eyes and give your attention to breathing. Doing this meditation ten minutes to half an hour daily, keeps your mind clear and receptive. It reduces the production of anxiety hormones, cortisol, and puts up a strong resistance to the progress of diseases Alzheimer’s. 6. Sleep Sleep is an important factor in daily life. We can’t stress enough how important it is to develop an effective brain. The body regenerates cells and remove toxins during sleep. Also the brain gathers the last day’s memories and resets itself when you’re asleep. It affects memory and learning. An adult requires six to eight hours of sleep. Loss in sleep leads to lethargy and fatigue and inability to concentrate on tasks. 5. Puzzles and Brain Games Just like we work-out our muscles, the brain also need working-out. The brain loves challenges as it help the brain to improve itself. Brain games, crosswords, Sudoku and chess are games that raise your level of cognitive thinking. Indulging in these activities daily keeps the brain effective and delays the onset of memory-related diseases. 4. Exercise Physical activity is not only good for your muscles, but for your brain as well. Exercise results in greater blood flow to the brain and causes nerve cells to release several chemicals that promote brain health. It also enhances neurogenesis, i.e. the formation of new brain cells. Exercise also improves neural connections and increases our cognitive function and ability to concentrate well. 3. Good Eating Habits What we eat makes us what we are. A balanced diet is a seminal requirement for the brain’s health. You need to avoid the junk food and concentrate on consuming enough protein, fiber and various minerals. Eating habits have an immense role in brain function since a fifth of the nutrients we intake is consumed by brain. Include enough vegetables, fruits and Omega-3 fatty acids found in oily fish in your diet. Also drink good amount of water. And never forget to have breakfast, which is the most significant meal in a day. 2. Learn a Musical Instrument If listening to music can boost your brain, learning music, particularly an instrument can benefit you even more. It can help you to become better in various other skills. Those who play musical instruments are found to be better in mathematical skills. So grab a guitar, piano or whatever interests you and start playing a few notes. Mind you, don’t annoy your neighbors though. 1. Learn a New Language This is the one tip that most of the neuroscientists agree upon. It not only improves your social skills but learning a new language is better for brain functions than several other ways combined. It opens up new neural pathways and has a huge impact on cognitive skills. It has been found to delay the attack of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia in many people. For those who can’t go to classes, there are numerous websites and apps offering free coaching, like Duolingo and Memrise.
