But plenty of people continue to document their daily secrets long after high school — and according to recent science, they may have healthier brains than those who keep that information bottled up. According to neuroscientists and psychologists, keeping personal information inside your head creates a conflict between two brain regions, which in turn leads to reduced cognitive function. The good news: The simple act of writing down those secrets may help undo the harm. In that way, keeping a journal has actual healing powers. Reminders of Connectedness. LSS2005.pdf. Hot to Help.

Mindfulness-based Mind Fitness Training (MMFT) - Mind fitness, neuroplasticity, and stress resilience

Just as physical fitness relies on repeated exercises to generate training-specific muscular and cardiovascular changes, mind fitness relies on attention exercises to improve cognitive functions and change brain structures. Just as the body is physically changed by exercise, areas of the brain may shrink or expand – become more or less functional – based on experience. This capacity is called neuroplasticity. For example, engaging in and repeating certain mental activities helps the brain become more efficient at those activities. Empathy Museum. Nonacademic Skills Are Key To Success.

Inner Relationship Focusing

In 1980 she began collaborating with him in teaching his Focusing workshops.[3] Using her capacity for linguistics, Cornell helped develop the concept of Focusing guiding, and in the early 1980s she offered the first seminars on Focusing guiding.[4] Her continuation of this process led to her development, with Barbara McGavin, of Inner Relationship Focusing.

Mas-Herrero_et_al_Curr_Bio2014.pdf. Reticular activating system. History and Etymology[edit] Moruzzi and Magoun first investigated the neural components regulating the brain’s sleep-wake mechanisms in 1949.

Physiologists had proposed that some structure deep within the brain controlled mental wakefulness and alertness.[1] It had been thought that wakefulness depended only on the direct reception of afferent (sensory) stimuli at the cerebral cortex. The direct electrical stimulation of the brain could simulate electrocortical relays. Sub threshold trauma.

We have introduced the term 'sub-threshold trauma' here to distinguish between a memory which causes excessive negative emotional arousal (eg anxiety or sadness) when activated by pattern matching to stimuli in the present and a molar memory.

    Idiosyncrasy defined the way physicians conceived diseases in the 19th century. They considered each disease as a unique condition, related to each patient. This understanding began to change in the 1870s, when discoveries made by researchers in Europe permitted the advent of a 'scientific medicine', a precursor to the evidence-based medicine that is the standard of practice today. ~ per Wikipedia entry for Idiosyncrasy
