How The Brain Functions

John Medina, author of Brain Rules the: Principles for Thriving at Work, Home and School explains stout things about how the human brain works. This book is very interesting though thick with views of evolution, perhaps because John is a molecular biologist.

Before discussing about the workings of the human brain in the book Brain Rules, it helps me to inform you that we can get a free explanation complete with presentation and video on BrainRules.net. Please conductivity your eyes to that site if your brain is filled with smoke curious.

In the book John wrote much about the workings of the human brain, but your brain will melt and come out of the ears if I wrote it all. Therefore I try to present a summary of the 12 ways fistful human brain works according to the book Brain Rules. Here's how the human brain works:

1. Exercise Can Increase Brain Capability

When you exercise or just move their bodies (like gymnastics because I have to), blood will be pumped to the brain, carry oxygen and glucose.

Well, from here we can figure out why when college we always feel bored in class, that is because we just sat there staring at the back of lecturers who are violent taking up space on the board. Sit quietly and it reduces the supply of oxygen to the brain. And so, as the lectures of professors evaporated vaporized from our mouths gaping wide open. Uuaaah .....

In addition to improving the ability of the brain, exercise is also able to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's and dementia (decline in brain capacity).

2. Also Brain Adapt and Evolve

Changes in natural (natural and social) that occur on earth has always been selfish in living things, because it's human as one part of a living being should be able to adapt to the changes that occur. Of course, the main organ is the brain responds to these changes. Why? Because the human brain continues to grow to learn, understand and resolve issues. Whether it is problems in interacting with nature or with other human beings. That's why the human brain is required to always be effective in adapting or even evolve, especially when dealing with issues of social or environmental change.

In terms of effectiveness, John meant that the human brain must be able to adapt and evolve significantly and it is reflected in the human ability to understand and resolve issues also build relationships with others.

For example, within the scope of social change, the human brain must be able to adapt when entering new territory with new ones because if the human brain can not comprehend the social environment then everything will be ineffective. An office worker can not work effectively if the brain is not able to adapt to the office environment.

3. Each Brain Composed By contrast


Nexus nerves in the human brain will continue to wake up but at the same time there was also a series of outages. Disconnect this connection (really like the song yes) causes the human brain is very dynamic or not stop growing, both physically and brain structures.

The dynamics of the human brain that occur due to a variety of events and experiences of everyday experience. That's why there is not one human has the same brains in the world. Everything is arranged differently, depending on the stimuli, events and experiences that the owner of the brain.

4. Human Brain Has Concentration Limits

The human brain can only focus on something for 10 minutes. That's why when listening to lectures, speeches or presentations we get bored quickly and directly grab something to distract, for example BB :-)

So if you have a chance to explain something to a person or audience, you get used to refresh the audience's brain every 10 minutes, for example, opens with a joke or a question and answer session.
