Eclipsed – How the Great Eclipse of 2017 May Have Changed Our Brains Forever

Learningtogo

The Earth, Sun and Moon combine in a complex dance to produce a total eclipse that is visible somewhere on the Earth approximately every 18 months, but the Earth is a big place. With the edges of the Sun still showing as a thin band of light, the effect looks like a brilliant diamond ring.

A long long time ago people believed that the Sun orbits the Earth. Not so long ago people believed that we only use around 10% of our brain capacity and that once a neuron dies, the brain loses it forever. The brain is actually very active during our down-time phase.

Perchance to Dream – How sleep affects learning, memory and brain health

While your body and your conscious mind appear to zone out during sleep, your brain is still very active, and doing some amazing things. Rapid Eye Movement sleep (REM) changes this pattern of slowly descending into lower and lower brain and body activity levels. Wake up with the sun.

Without going all brain science on you – in short, scientists say that such behaviors, such as building in positive filters are a learned and conscious effort. However, progress doesn’t suddenly raise up like the morning sun it takes awareness, work and purpose.

We used to believe that the sun circled the earth, and that the world was flat. And, let me add, these old practices are not aligned with what we know about how our brains work. A recent twitter spat led me to some reflections, and I thought I’d share.

Why Is Memory Important for Learning?

Ed App

This is why we must improve our ability to learn in order to avoid having to ask Google every question under the sun. Memorising information exercises the brain, forcing us to focus and avoids us from becoming distracted and lazy. So that ideas that are held in working memory can be rapidly accessed from the brain’s stored memory. Exercising our brain’s ability to remember is essential for the accessibility of knowledge stored in our long-term memories.

I'm sure that some employers would prefer to own the blog, i.e., it's a Sun Computer owned blogging system, therefore when you leave Sun you leave your content behind. Certainly, if it's in your brain, you leave with it.

Knowledge and Learning In The News - 12/23/2006

Big Dog, Little Dog

Many have alluded to the importance of the environment on the developing brain. As a neuroscientist, I root and endorse that view in the bump and grind of brain cells. You are born with most of the brain cells you will ever have. It is the growth of the connections between the brain cells that accounts for the growth of the brain after birth. So even if you are a clone-that is, an identical twin-you will have a unique pattern of brain cell connections.
