The Brain’s Memory Capacity May Be Ten Times Greater Than We Thought. Like a computer, the brain has a storage capacity that determines how much memory it can hold.

The Brain’s Memory Capacity May Be Ten Times Greater Than We Thought

However, while computing power can be neatly measured in bits, the amount of information that the brain can process depends upon the strength of the electrical signals that are passed between neurons. Understanding how these signals are mediated is, therefore, essential if we are to discover the brain’s overall memory capacity. Although a precise measurement for this capacity has never been agreed upon, a new study that appeared in the journal eLife has suggested that previous rough estimates may have significantly underestimated the brain's memory storage capabilities. In fact, they suggest our memory capacity may be as much as ten times greater than we thought. Neuronal cells communicate with one another via appendages called axons and dendrites, with the former carrying electrical signals away from the cell body and the latter conducting these impulses towards the cell body.

How to help an anxious child live a full life - All In The Mind

There’s no way to really know, but researchers say anxiety is one of the more common mental health problems facing children and adolescents today. Lynne Malcolm and Olivia Willis take a look at the causes of anxiety, the best ways to manage it, and how understanding children’s emotional development can give important insight into the adults they become. Modern psychology has, until fairly recently, focused on how we think and behave, rather than how we feel. Just let kids play in the mud and allow them to face situations, even if life is messy and dirty and you get yuck sometimes, that is good experience to be able to just learn to face those difficult situations.

When I was in high school, I remember thinking that I had to pick a career at which I would be happy for the next 50 or so years of my life. What a daunting task. You can’t know. I spent a year substitute teaching in an effort to see if I wanted to become a public school teacher. You can’t figure out the whole future. Remember, you don’t know what’s coming next.
