Magnets may make the brain grow stronger


 

Could magnets make the mind grow stronger? In mice at least, stimulating the brain with a magnetic coil appears to promote the growth of new neurons in areas associated with learning and memory. If the effect is confirmed in humans, it might open up new ways of treating age-related memory decline and diseases like Alzheimer’s.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) has been used experimentally to treat a range of brain disorders, including depression and schizophrenia, and to rehabilitate people after a stroke. TMS uses a magnetic coil to induce electric fields in the brain tissue – activating or deactivating groups of neurons, although the exact mechanism has remained unknown. One theory was that it aided learning and memory by strengthening brain circuits through a process called long-term potentiation (LTP).

To investigate, Fortunato Battaglia at the City University of New York and his colleagues gave mice TMS for five days, then analysed …

Ever experience shocks to the body-Spiritual downloads?


I noticed a phenomenon the other day. At times I will be reading new information and my body goes through rapid jerks like I have been shocked. Once I noticed it I thought what the hell is this. I do some chakra work in meditation and I went into a bookstore and picked up a book on it. I immediately opened to a page where it said sometimes information can trigger a whole cascade or download of other information. This in turn starts a physical change in the body. If the body is overwhelmed it can cause sudden convulsions as shock travel through the body. So I thought hmmmmm

Then I noticed as my brother and I were talking he was doing the same thing. He was totally unaware of it until I pointed it out. Then I talked to my father about much of the info I had picked up. He was jumping all over the couch. I told him and he just smiled.Anyone else experience this?

Could it be clicking theĀ  amygdala forward?

Why Tickle Your Amygdala

According to T. A. Lingo* (a pioneering in brain research) tickling your amygdala is an easy way to stimulate the most advanced and dormant part of your primate brain – your neo cortex. The part of your brain that becomes extremely active during deep meditation, ecstasy, nirvana, samahdi, transcendence and all of your higher functions, emotions, and peak experiences. Albeit unconvential for his time, time is now corroborating what Lingo asserted: that the amygdala is like a switch to our spiritual, cosmic super brain.
