VIDEO - The amazing brain! An example of how we can control and create new neural pathways.

This 3 minute video shows how paraplegics, over a long and consistent period of time, are able to use neuroscience and virtual software to train their brains to gain some movement in their legs and control of their bladder and bowel. Life changing for them! To view the video click the image or click HERE .

VIDEO - The brain that changed! Cerebral palsy sufferer did not allow his disability to define him.

Over this 7 minute video you see the progress of Andy, a young Australian with CP to the degree that his personal trainer  Lee describes him as having around 20 % physical function. Using neuroplastic principles consistently and sheer determination, Andy's body function improved to 70%. Again, a life changing example of the power we have to change and dramatically improve our brains. To view the video click the image or click HERE .

 

WEBSITE - John Medina is a molecular biologist and research consultant whose book, 'Brain Rules' is an easy read and helps explain the connection between the body, the emotions, the spirit and how they all can affect the capacity for learning. His film and other resources are great tools for learning as well. To visit the 'Brain Rules' website, click on the image left or click HERE.

 

WEBSITE - Dr Caroline Leaf, author and neuroscientist  has a variety of books and materials to explain the power we have to change our mind set and our habits, including emotional reactions and anxieties. Her most recognised work is 'Who Switched off My Brain' and the following best seller 'Switch On Your Brain.' To visit Dr Leaf's website, click on the image left or click HERE.

 

WEBSITE -The Hawn Foundation has established a school program to assist children in becoming mindful of their thoughts, feelings and therefore their actions. It has been highly successful across the US, Canada and the UK. Don't dismiss this simply because it is Goldie Hawn's pet project (like I did initially)! She has gathered together brilliant scientists and educators and the foundation and their resources are well worth a look; as is her book, '10 Mindful Minutes'. To visit the Hawn Foundation's website, click on the image left or click HERE.
