The Six Stages of Mental Strength. Many people think that mentally strong people are simply born that way.

The Six Stages of Mental Strength

That from the moment their feet hit the ground, they are simply endowed with some almost supernatural skill that allows them to face challenges bravely. Others think that mental strength is like a light bulb – it is either turned on or turned off. And if yours happens to be off, you are out of luck. What most people don’t know is that mental strength it is neither a genetic gift, nor a character trait. It is a skill that is perfected through the constant interface with adversity. Here are the six stages of mental strength: Disruption. Uncertainty. Reconsideration. Search for Meaning. Brain. Neurotechnologies. Human Body 2. Human Performance Improvement.

9 Mind-Bending Epiphanies That Turned My World Upside-Down. This Nifty Infographic is a Great Introduction to Neuroplasticity and Cognitive Therapy. By Robert Montenegro It's startling to think about how we've got a spaceship millions of miles away ready to rendezvous with Pluto, yet here on Earth there are major aspects of our own anatomy that we're almost completely ignorant about.

This Nifty Infographic is a Great Introduction to Neuroplasticity and Cognitive Therapy

We've climbed Everest, sent men to the moon, and invented the Internet — but we still don't know how our brains work. The positive outlook is that many health, science, and research specialists believe we're on the precipice of some major neuroscientific breakthroughs. One example of a recent discovery with major implications is our further understanding of neuroplasticity. Simply put, we used to think our brain was what it was — unchangeable, unalterable. Neuroscience and the effectiveness of energy psychology (Part 1 of 3) 120 Ways to Boost Your Brain Power.

Here are 120 things you can do starting today to help you think faster, improve memory, comprehend information better and unleash your brain’s full potential.

To all of our readers, As you know, the fundamental premise of my work over the years has been to raise awareness of the relationship between nutrition and digestion, and how they support brain health and function.

Brain and Gut

In my presentations to professionals, as well as my publications, I have endeavored to incorporate the most up-to-date research from around the world showing relevance to this thesis. And while there are journals dealing with brain science that may feature research dealing with nutrition, as well as nutritional and digestive publications that, on occasion, describe the role of nutrition in brain health, there is not, as yet, a journal fully dedicated to fully exploring this arena. The 9 Types of Intelligence By Howard Gardner... 6 Real People With Mind-Blowing Mutant Superpowers.

If the insane, explosive popularity if superhero movies is any indication, we are fascinated by people who are insanely better than us at any given thing.

6 Real People With Mind-Blowing Mutant Superpowers

Probably because, in real life, we're all such a bunch of incompetent boobs that we've been enslaved by blue paint, flashing lights and crying French babies. But it turns out, superpowers are real. And not just the secret ones that everyone has, or even the ones everyone thinks they have -- this Cracked Classic is about a group of people that, in a sane world, would already have multi-colored leather jumpsuits, delightfully mismatched personality traits and a skyscraper shaped like whatever they decide to call themselves. Buzzword: Micro-learning. I was introduced recently to a new buzz word making its way across the learning & development industry: Micro-learning.

Buzzword: Micro-learning

If you’re like me, you’re probably starting to get a bit tired of people adding their particular spin to learning – all in search of the holy grail that is the “right way” to make learning happen. It doesn’t exist. But having got that out of the way, it is worth looking at these ideas to see if there’s anything we, as learning professionals, can learn from them.

As a term, “micro-learning” has been around since about 2004, when it was put forward in a PhD thesis by Gerhard Gassler. 10 Sci-Fi Technologies That Already Exist. In between two worlds.

Berkeley Researchers Create Robo-Muscles 1,000 Times Stronger Than Ours. The First Person To Ever Receive Two Mind-Controlled Prosthetic Arms. Anti-diabetic drug slows aging and lengthens lifespan, animal study suggests. A study by Belgian doctoral researcher Wouter De Haes (KU Leuven) and colleagues provides new evidence that metformin, the world's most widely used anti-diabetic drug, slows aging and increases lifespan.

Anti-diabetic drug slows aging and lengthens lifespan, animal study suggests

In experiments reported in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers tease out the mechanism behind metformin's age-slowing effects: the drug causes an increase in the number of toxic oxygen molecules released in the cell and this, surprisingly, increases cell robustness and longevity in the long term. Mitochondria -- the energy factories in cells -- generate tiny electric currents to provide the body's cells with energy. Highly reactive oxygen molecules are produced as a by-product of this process. It was long thought that harmful reactive oxygen molecules were the very cause of aging. Other studies in humans have shown that metformin suppresses some cancers and heart disease. Soldiers could have their bones copied and 3D printed in case of injury.

Soldiers could be scanned before they enter the battlefield and a virtual 'twin' kept online so that new bones could be 3D printed when they get injured, scientists have suggested.

Soldiers could have their bones copied and 3D printed in case of injury

Experts at the University of Nevada are in discussion with the US military to create records of ‘virtual’ soldiers which could be referred to by army surgeons. The team already uses virtual operating tables to practice dissection and help medical students learn the anatomy of the human body. How "SuperAger" Brains Are Different Than Everyone Else's. Researchers working with SuperAgers—people aged 80 and up with impeccable memory—reveal how their brains look decades younger.

How "SuperAger" Brains Are Different Than Everyone Else's

And compared to others their age, SuperAgers have nearly 90 percent fewer brain “tangles” linked to Alzheimer’s disease. The findings were published in the Journal of Neuroscience last week. Direct Brain-To-Brain Communication Used in Humans. Tapping directly into someone’s brain in order to share thoughts isn’t just for Spock anymore.

Direct Brain-To-Brain Communication Used in Humans

An international team of researchers were able to replicate the Vulcan Mind Meld by creating a device that allows two people to share information through thought. The researchers tested the technology by separating the users over 8,000 km (5,000 mi) apart—with one user in France and the other in India. The paper has been published in PLOS ONE. "We wanted to find out if one could communicate directly between two people by reading out the brain activity from one person and injecting brain activity into the second person, and do so across great physical distances by leveraging existing communication pathways," co-author Alvaro Pascual-Leone said in a press release.
