The Beautiful Brain!

“My brain, I believe, is the most beautiful part of my body.”

–  Shakira

I cannot imagine anything more spectacular and amazing than the human brain!  It is, in my opinion absolutely miraculous.  In her groundbreaking book – Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain, Sharon Begley describes fascinating new research in Neuroplasticity.   She explains that we have the power to literally change our brains by changing our minds.

Begley reveals that the brain is capable of altering its structure  and function, and even of generating new neurons.  I always hated it when my father said: “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.”  If my dad were alive today, I would give him Begley’s book and say: “Oh yes you can!”

Neuroanatomist Jill Bolte Taylor gives one of the most inspirational talks on the brain that I have ever seen.  Please take the time to watch this, it is wonderful!

Please let me know what you think Jill Bolte Taylor’s talk –  (you can leave a comment by clicking on the speech bubble at the top of this post.)  And I’d love to hear any great stories about your beautiful brain.

And as always, thank you for taking the time to visit, I appreciate it.
