'If the information arrives at the synapse as a signal, signal processing is enhanced, which ultimately leads to improved learning and development. In this context, the complex networks of lipids and proteins had a decisive effect on the functioning of the synapses. Thus, the current study provides a molecular explanation for why an enhancing stimulating environment can have a positive effect on neuronal plasticity and brain development.'

Daily Routine 5 - Strategic Methods

Daily Routine 5 - Strategic Methods

• 25 minute , followed by 2 minute break , repeat 3 to 4 times until you choose a larger break of around 15 minutes

• 90 minutes , followed by a 10-15 minute break

this also helps when doing things you dont like or if you are procrastinating - brain sends a pain reaction 20 minutes of time , if you overcome that period you will teach yourself its not that bad

surprisingly the same time span (20 minutes) is needed to decrease your focus, breaks will help you getting new information processed
