Meditation and the Neuroplasticity in the Brain

Researches on Neuroplasticity in the brain: What are the 9 key brain regions in our brain and their functions?

arietal Lobe: be responsible for connectedness, dealing With Loneliness

Corpus Callosum: has something to do with creativity

Hippocampus: monitor memory and learning. Once it gets damaged, the symptoms of depression come into being

Anterior Insula: has something to do with kindness, happiness and compassion

TPJ: For success and relationships

The “Fear Center” Amygdala: dealing with stress and anxiety

Prefrontal Cortex: connected with intellect and health

Pons: be responsible for insomnia, dreams and healing


1) Dr. Newburg, being a bestselling author, asserts that people lose their sense of self in meditation and would reach a sense of “oneness” with “no sense of space or passage of time.”

Many studies found that people with better social relationships live a happier life with better life-span and they have higher self-esteem and empathy. By sharing connectedness, people might get to know the daily problems or life challenges of others, which might be helpful to lower their levels of anxiety and depression.

Overall, meditation or yoga can be helpful to reduce the symptoms of stress, depression and anxiety disorders. It proves to be helpful to insomnia as well.

2) What were your happiest moments in life?

Laughing with the loved ones is a common answer. Thus, many people argue that the best cure for loneliness would be solid relationships, especially “in-person” relationships.  

3) Extreme self-isolation would be harmful but common for many people. As noted, more than half of mainstream society suffer from detrimental effects of sense of loneliness, mental, emotional and physically. Thankfully, meditation would be useful to keep your parietal lobe calm, cool, and collected from feeling blue.

4) Scientist Dr. Andrew Newberg took brain images of Tibetan Monks during meditation and found the “highly intelligent” frontal lobes lit up the screen and the meditators’ “third-dimensional” based parietal lobes cooled off immensely,

“Each hemisphere is a conscious system in its own right, perceiving, thinking, remembering, reasoning, willing, and emoting, all at a characteristically human level,” quote from neuroscientist Dr. Roger Sperry’s Nobel Prize winning “split-brain” studies.

 

Dr. Sperry: “imbalanced” brain findings.

Dr. Sperry asserts that left-brained people are generally more logical, practical, and analytical, often better at math and science. Right-brained people are generally more imaginative, intuitive, and sensual, often excelling at philosophy and arts.

Creative people are “whole brain” thinkers rather than “right brain” thinkers

Neuroscientists have recently learned that highly creative people are actually “whole brain” thinkers rather than just “right brain” thinkers.

I tend to unveil the issues which are easily neglected by the mainstream public. Situated in a global capitalist society, the core spirit of capitalism disseminates a reward-oriented idea. What is the underlying causality of universal bullying phenomenon on the worldwide scale? As to Finland’s anti-bullying program “Kiva,” what do you reckon? Self-serving politicians gross over their wickedness by law or something and they are talented at outwitting the crowds and working for their own advantage with flat-out lies.

Many thanks. 不久的未來,會逐步增加英文文章的篇幅,中文文章的部分還是主體,不論手機板或電腦版都建議「利用目錄和關鍵字搜尋主題」。網站目標是兼具知識、娛樂與療癒功能的平台。網站提供日英語教學、兩性專欄、最新醫療資訊、推薦書籍、旅遊美食、職場生存之道專欄、親子教育、歌單、逛街情報、理財投資等。支持網站最好的方式,是幫忙把文章分享出去。陸劇《新結婚時代》、韓劇《急診男女》《迷霧》《羅曼史是別冊附錄》、日劇《完美世界》《3年A班》、台劇《我們不能是朋友》、美劇影集推薦《良醫墨非》《命運航班》《小謝爾頓》。眼科黃宥嘉醫生掛名推薦的療癒系小說《推理愛》、醫學書籍《向癒》。關於教育,不該只focus要求孩子「聽話」,應該盡可能早點交會孩子「拒絕」「求救」「表達自己的想法」與「選擇和做決定的能力」。比起幫孩子做決定,「訓練孩子為自己的事做決定很可能比什麼都重要」,畢竟,父母不可能永恆地陪在身邊替孩子做決定....如果你剛好相信上帝,傲慢、怠惰、對生命喪失熱情和貪吃都是大忌,互相督促!世界太多聲音,太容易迷失,互相督促!聽說「道聽塗說和一知半解比無知更可怕。」研究證實我們的情緒會影響身體的發炎指數和血糖指數,世界的悲劇是溫飽不需要太多太多的錢,但太多人長大以後就「看不到錢以外的東西」...長大以後會讀更多經歷更多體會更多,但只是鑽牛角尖的時間縮短了,悲傷的時間縮短了,但並沒有比較聰明(讓驕傲的大人們寫高中聯考的考卷吧).....
