stay awake switch brain hemispheres New sleep-deprivation record holder Tony Wright tells Gelf he's altered his brain chemistry and thus can stay up indefinitely. On May 14, Tony Wright walked into the Studio Bar in Penzance, England. For 11 days and two hours, the long-haired horticulturist stayed there, playing pool, talking with other customers, and taking notes. One thing he didn't do, though, was sleep. "I was frustrated that 99 percent of the coverage was. Tony Wright Wright, 43, readily admits his feat was a PR stunt designed to drive interest in his radical theory about diet and brain development (and perhaps sell a few copies of his self-published book Left in the Dark). Even if his ideas seem far-fetched, it's hard to deny that he has done something that most of us—regardless of how many college all-nighters we pulled—can't even imagine. Gelf Magazine: How do you tire out the left hemisphere and make the switch to the right? GM: You said that after five days or so, you felt completely normal. TW: Yes, I did.

daniel amen The unique ability of Dr Daniel Amen to link brain images to behavioral problems is inexplicable to a large section of the medical community. Dr.Amen has done path breaking work at the cutting edge of science in SPECT neuroimaging. He has documented links between SPECT images of neural activity and emotional problems such as depression, anxiety, temper, impulsiveness and obsession. After identifying these as “observable circuit problems,” he has successfully treated thousands of patients. Yet, in spite of his patent success, many dispute his claims. Daniel Amen - Specific Brain Regions Perform Specific FunctionsYou can see "hints of the soul" in brain images. Daniel Amen - The Brain Follows A Precise Pattern Recognition Path The brain is a pattern recognition system, which receives and stores patterns from the environment, interprets those patterns and triggers emotions. Daniel Amen - Abnormal Activity In Some RegionsSome brain regions exhibit abnormal activity. Back To Top

Radiopaedia.org, the wiki-based collaborative Radiology resource brain improvement Much of the brain is still mysterious to modern science, possibly because modern science itself is using brains to analyze it. There are probably secrets the brain simply doesn't want us to know. But by no means should that stop us from tinkering around in there, using somewhat questionable and possibly dangerous techniques to make our brains do what we want. We can't vouch for any of these, either their effectiveness or safety. All we can say is that they sound awesome, since apparently you can make your brain... #5. So you just picked up the night shift at your local McDonald's, you have class every morning at 8am and you have no idea how you're going to make it through the day without looking like a guy straight out of Dawn of the Dead, minus the blood... hopefully. "SLEEEEEEEEEP... uh... What if we told you there was a way to sleep for little more than two hours a day, and still feel more refreshed than taking a 12-hour siesta on a bed made entirely out of baby kitten fur? Holy Shit!
