  • Leading Brain Researcher: How Does Meditation Impact the Brain?

    http://www.davidlynchfoundation.org/ On June 8, 2011, the David Lynch Foundation held a gala at American University in Washington DC in honor of the launch of Operation Warrior Wellness DC - an initiative to teach 10,000 veterans suffering with PTSD and their families the Transcendental Meditation technique. In this clip from the event, DLF vice president Bob Roth interviews leading neuroscientist Dr. Fred Travis on the effects of TM practice on the brain. Dr Travis reveals stunning findings about the impact of acute stress on the brain, including how trauma promotes hypervigilance - the "veil of fear" - and locks-in the "fight-or-flight" response, and how TM practice, by giving the brain with an opposite, soothing, integrating experience, heals these scars.

The Event Is Coming Soon - Neuroscientist Shows What Fasting Does To Your Brain & Why Big Pharma Won’t Study It Below is a TEDx talk given by Mark Mattson, the current Chief of the Laboratory of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging. He is also a professor of Neuroscience at The Johns Hopkins University, and one of the foremost researchers of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying multiple neurodegenerative disorders, like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease. I’d like to address the Big Pharma issue first, since there have been countless examples of research manipulation at the hands of pharmaceutical companies in recent years. This is why Harvard Professor of Medicine Arnold Symour Relman told the world that the medical profession has been bought by the pharmaceutical industry. It’s why Dr. Richard Horton, Editor in Chief of The Lancet, recently stated that much of the scientific literature published today is false. It’s why Dr. Marcia Angell, former Editor in Chief of The New England Journal of Medicine, said that the “pharmaceutical industry likes to depict itself as a research-based industry, as the source of innovative drugs. Nothing could be further from the truth.” And it’s why John Ioannidis, an epidemiologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, published an article titled “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False,” which subsequently became the most widely accessed article in the history of the Public Library of Science (PLoS).

Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos. 7. Tiny Pacemakers - The first pacemaker was implanted in 1958 and since then the technology has improved in fits and starts. While there hasn’t been much improvement in the last couple of decades, that is all about to change. Medtronic, the company that created the first pacemaker, is set to redefine the industry. Its newest model will only be the size of a vitamin and can be implanted via a catheter. This new technique to implant the device has been highly successful, improving the complication rate by over 50%. Now 96% of patients report no major complications. 6. Brain Implants - Researchers at the Ohio State University are working on brain implants to read a patients’ brain impulses in order to control prosthetics. Their test subject, Ian Burkhart is paralyzed from the chest down but has been able to re-train his brain to issue commands to a special prosthetic sleeve on his arm in order to pour drinks. To accomplish this, the doctors implanted a microchip in his brain which translates electrical impulses in the brain into movement. Right now this device is a proof of concept, but the researchers are making steady gains and hope to have a product to bring to the market in the near future. 5. Artificial Skin - Improving the look of aging skin has been the Holy Grail for dermatologists since…forever. Artificial skin grafts are currently available and they have steadily improved, however, two new breakthroughs may revolutionize the industry. An MIT scientist named Robert Langer has developed a polymer based “second skin” which mimics the appearance of youthful skin instantly when applied. The downside right now is that it only lasts a few days. Not to be outdone, UC Riverside chemistry professor, Chao Wang, is working on a conductive mesh polymer that can actually self-heal. Apparently a fan of the Marvel character Wolverine, and his ability to self-heal, he says he is “trying to bring science fiction into the real world.” 4. Bio glass Cartilage - Scientists have recently created a material the call “bio glass”. Bio glass is a 3D printed silica-polymer combination that combines the strength and flexibility necessary to provide a viable replacement for human cartilage. As proposed the bio glass can be used as a scaffold to allow human cartilage to regrow, but it also has self-healing properties as well, allowing the material to re-bond if torn. Research is still be conducted but the scientists hope to start clinical trials in the near future. 3. Google Eye Implant - That’s right, the same company that provides the search engine millions of people use every day also has a medical division. Their latest project – the Google Contact Lens – is an implantable lens that can be used to replace the eye’s natural one. The obvious goal is to improve vision for the patient, but this device offers so much more. It could potentially read blood pressure, record glucose levels for diabetics, wirelessly update your doctor, and even restore vision for the blind. It is currently in clinical trials. Let’s hope it comes to the market sooner rather than later. 2. Ghost Hearts - A new technique has been developed for those needing heart transplants. Doris Taylor from the Texas Heart Institute has pioneered a new technique which involves taking a donor animal heart and bathing it in a solution that strips away all of the animal’s cells, except for the protein. The remaining “ghost heart” can then be treated with a solution of the patients own stem cells to have them use the animal heart structure to regrow a new heart for the patient. The heart is then hooked up to a bioreactor – an artificial circulatory system, until it is ready for implantation. 1. Injectable Brain Mesh - Researchers from Harvard University have created a conductive polymer mesh that can be injected into the brain where it morphs to the brain tissue. The researchers believe that the mesh could actually monitor the brain down to the individual neuron level. They hope to one day be able to treat stroke patients and those suffering from other neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease. They also hope to achieve a better understanding of higher level cognitive functions, such as emotions and memory.

NOTE FROM TED: This talk contains several assertions that are not supported by academically respected studies in medicine and psychology. While some viewers might find advice provided in this talk to be helpful, please do not look to this talk for medical advice. In response to Philip Zimbardo's "The Demise of Guys?" TED talk, Gary Wilson asks whether our brains evolved to handle the hyperstimulation of today's Internet enticements. He also discusses the disturbing symptoms showing up in some heavy Internet users, the surprising reversal of those symptoms, and the science behind these 21st century phenomena. More About Gary Wilson Gary is host of www.yourbrainonporn.com. The site arose in response to a growing demand for solid scientific information by heavy Internet erotica users experiencing perplexing, unexpected effects: escalation to more extreme material, concentration difficulties, sexual performance problems, radical changes in sexual tastes, social anxiety, irritability, inability to stop, and obsessive-compulsive symptoms. As a physiology teacher with a particular interest in the latest neuroscience discoveries, Gary was aware that their symptoms might be the result of addiction-related brain changes. Applying the website's concepts of brain plasticity, many former users have braved withdrawal, reversed their symptoms and restored normal sexual responsiveness. The site has been linked to from hundreds of threads in forums from over thirty countries, with posts numbering in the thousands. Gary blogs for "Psychology Today" and "The Good Men Project" on the extreme plasticity of adolescent brains, the evolutionary context for today's flood of novel cyber "mates," and the neurochemical reasons why superstimulating Internet delivery has unexpected effects on the brain. Many thanks to Pat Somers of Slow Moving Pictures for the skillful editing of this video. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

Learn how to honor your heroes. Read my book: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XV76SZ9 “In Search of Heroes Story: Why Is Understanding Your Unique Heroes Journey So Important For Your Personal Peace, Happiness and Success?” Author Ralph Zuranski has researched heroes, heroism, and the 12 roles of the heroes journey for over 50 years. He created Captain Biorhythm, his alter ego hero, in 1976 to teach professional athletes how to use the Science of Biorhythms to optimize their performance in sports and avoid accidents and injuries. He believes you have the potential to be a hero or heroine to your family, friends and strangers when you integrate your brain and body and learn how to use biorhythms to improve your life. Ralph discovered that heroism is easier to understand when you analyze the different events and people in your life in light of the 12 roles: Innocent, Orphan, Warrior, Caregiver, Seeker, Lover, Destroyer, Creator, Ruler, Magician, Sage and Fool. It is much easier for you to deal with your triumphs, trials, tribulations, and transformations when you embrace and live your own unique heroes journey. As a Special Features writer for the Coronado Eagle newspaper in San Diego, he wrote articles about local heroes who were making a positive difference in the community. He created the In Search Of Heroes program to encourage high school journalism students to ask questions about heroes and heroism. The goal was to inspire young people to research the concept of heroism, so they could write educational articles to inspire themselves, other students and the community. During his research, Ralph realized the best way to honor the heroes in your life is to write exciting, emotionally engaging stories and create videos about how they impacted your personal heroes journey. It is important to honor the people who made and make a positive difference in your life. This book teaches you how to honor those who inspired you to be a better person, overcome difficult problems and accept the responsibility for your own decisions. Your stories will give them the recognition they deserve and inspire future generations. You will discover there are many unexpected heroes and mentors in your life. They help you break free from the situations and thought processes that block your emotional and spiritual growth. They helped you to become the person you were created to be, so you could complete your unique mission here on earth. By writing stories about them and their impact on your life journey, you pass on to future generations the wisdom you have gained.
