It causes the brain to process data in several senses simultaneously. For example, people with synesthesia may hear sounds while seeing them as colourful swirls.
About 1 in 2,000 people experience synesthesia. The condition is more common in artists, writers and musicians. (about 20 to 25 percent of these professions have the condition.)
Neuroscientists focus on the brain and its impact on behaviour and cognitive functions. They study the nervous system's cellular, functional, behavioural, evolutionary, computational, molecular, cellular, and medical aspects.
Neuroscience is an interdisciplinary science. It works closely with mathematics, linguistics, engineering, computer science, chemistry, philosophy, psychology, and medicine.
Research shows the importance of nutrition for exercise. However, it is not always clear whether it's best to eat before or after you exercise.
The following should be considered:
While neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to form fresh connections and to rewire itself, neurogenesis is the brain’s ability to grow new neurons.
Experiments in the 1960s discovered that traumatic events, stress and anxiety are detrimental to the neuron cells of the brain. This led to new understandings about the brain being a regenerative organ, where cells can regrow and replenish, also known as neurogenesis.
Most people didn't see exercise as necessary until the mid-20th century. Food scarcity meant people didn't overeat, and it didn't make sense to try to burn off the calories.
However, industrialization changed the nature of work and food production. Fewer farmers were doing physical labour, and more people were doing office desk jobs. The growth of automobile culture, the suburban sprawl, and the popularity of television, all led to a more sedentary lifestyle.
Most of us think of stress as something negative, akin to anxiety.
