  • Researchers identify brain areas linked to mindfulness and anxiety reduction.

    In recent years there has been a steady stream of research showing the power of mindfulness meditation to reduce anxiety. Until now, the specific brain mechanisms of how meditation relieves anxiety at a neural level were unknown. 

    On June 3, 2013 researchers at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center published a study titled “Neural Correlates of Mindfulness Meditation-Related Anxiety Relief” in the journal Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience which identifies brain regions activated by mindfulness meditation.

    Anxiety is a cognitive state connected to an inability to regulate your emotional responses to perceived threats. Mindfulness meditation strengthens a person’s cognitive ability to regulate emotions. "Although we've known that meditation can reduce anxiety, we hadn't identified the specific brain mechanisms involved in reliev

  • Circadian cycles impact health, longevity, and metabolism.

    The rising and setting of the sun influences the function of every cell in our bodies. Almost every organism on earth—from single-cell algae to humans—has an internal circadian clock which is a biological timing mechanism that corresponds closely with the 24-hour cycle of light and darkness. Human sleep patterns are largely governed by our internal circadian clock.

    In humans and animals, circadian patterns follow a 24-hour cycle which is directed by the circadian control center of the brain, called the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), located in the hypothalamus. The rising and setting of the sun is literally hardwired into our neurobiology.

    The inner-workings of the "circadian clock" are complex. The molecular processes behind it have eluded scientists until now. Two new studies from June 2013 have uncovered specific proteins that drive circadian cycl

  • What Is Neuromuscular Reeducation?

    photo courtsey of www.coreperformance.com

    Neuromuscular reeducation is a general term that refers to techniques that attempt to retrain the neuromuscular system to function properly. The basis of this idea is that the formation of certain patterns of communication between muscles and nerves allow people to perform simple everyday acts such as climbing stairs. These normal patterns of movement can be disrupted by injuries or may be impaired in people with certain medical conditions. The general aim is either to re-establish normal patterns of movement in injured people or to create normal patterns of movement in disabled people, by practicing a variety of exercises. People with specific injuries or challenges often seek out these techniques. This may include people who have experienced fractures or muscle tears or people with conditions like arthritis or cerebral palsy. Healthy people who want to improve their overall balance, strength, or flexibility, such as professional dancers or

  • Why We Shout In Anger

    Why we shout in anger.

    A Hindu saint who was visiting river Ganges to take bath found a group of family members on the banks, shouting in anger at each other. He turned to his disciples smiled and asked.

    ‘Why do people shout in anger, shout at each other?’

    Disciples thought for a while, one of them said, ‘Because we lose our calm, we shout.’

    ‘But, why should you shout when the other person is just next to you? You can as well tell him what you have to say in a soft manner.’ asked the saint

    Disciples gave some other answers but none satisfied the other disciples.
    Finally the saint explained, .

    ‘When two people are angry at each other, their hearts distance a lot. To cover that distance they must shout to be able to hear each other. The angrier they are, the stronger they will have to shout to hear each other to cover that great distance.

    What happens when two people fall in love? They don’t shout at each other but talk softly, Because their hearts are very close. The distance bet
