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.

國外研究證實阿茲海默症患者「禁糖」可逆轉病情!維他命E主修復,容易緊繃的人類可多補充富含維生素B和鈣的食物。提高體溫便可提振心情和提高自癒力。提升免疫力,穴道按摩排除氣結是其一。科學已證實正面情緒可降低「身體發炎指數和血糖指數」。禍福相依,創傷之所以存在,往往不是事件本身,而是人們的負面解讀和負面標籤。拔牙與產子都是巨痛,但創傷比例偏低,是因為人們給予了事件正面的存在意義,並且相信所有人都能熬過去的意志。不記他人之惡,因為佛教基督教都一樣,老天爺(上帝)都記在本子裡了。理財時代,從照顧好自己的健康開始。想著別人的壞,為難了自己,想著別人的好,溫暖了自己!不屬於自己的只會逗留,不會久留。不自律就不太可能快樂。不自律,就很難肯定自己。做該做的事,而不是想做的事。「柔」「自律」「耐心」….To love and to repent.
