  1. 1. HYPNO-STUDY Presenter: Bruni Brewin Free Advisory Line: 1800 067 557 President Emeritus (Life) AHA
  2. 3. <ul><li>In the study, published in Nature Neuroscience, participants could freely decide if they wanted to press a button with their left or right hand. They were free to make this decision whenever they wanted, but had to remember at which time they felt they had made up their mind. The aim of the experiment was to find out what happens in the brain in the period just before the person felt the decision was made. The researchers found that it was possible to predict from brain signals which option participants would take up to seven seconds before they consciously made their decision. </li></ul>ISBN (13): 9781921215827 Norman Doidge, MD
  3. 4. The Amazing Power of your Brain… Your brain is capable of processing an estimated 30 billion bits of information each second. You have about 28 billion neurons – the nerve cells responsible for conducting information throughout the brain. Some of them are as long as several feet or more – and each neuron is actually a self-contained computer with the capability of processing an estimated one million bits of information.
  4. 5. The Amazing Power of your Brain… <ul><li>Although each neuron can act independently, your brain contains an estimated 100,000 miles (that’s 160,934 Kilometers) of neural fibers as your neurons reach out to communicate with each other. </li></ul>
  5. 6. The Amazing Power of your Brain… <ul><li>Plus just one single neuron can simultaneously send a signal to hundreds of thousands of other neurons in less than 20 milliseconds – one tenth of the time it takes for you to blink. </li></ul>
  6. 7. The Amazing Power of your Brain… With all this miraculous mental processing power, why aren’t we all happy, successful peak performers? And why can’t we automatically accomplish any goal we desire – or at least overcome any tendency to procrastinate, think limiting thoughts, lack concentration and memory, or buy into negativity?
  7. 8. THE ABSENT MINDED PROFESSOR The professor does not have a poor memory (certainly not for his own subject), he simply pays little attention to everyday things.

  12. 15. A brain neurotransmitter - dopamine - helps you concentrate.  Raise the levels of dopamine, and you'll be able to focus and concentrate better. This is essentially what coffee, tea, and drugs like Ritalin do.
  13. 16. <ul><li>To do the same without drugs, get some good quality sleep and at least some moderate exercise. It also helps to eat foods that slowly release sugars into your system, including beans, whole grains, apples, and salads. </li></ul>
  14. 17. Another way to improve your concentration is to avoid or reduce interruptions. It can take up to fifteen minutes to regain full concentration when interrupted by a visitor or phone call.
  15. 18. A few well-placed interruptions can eat up a lot of your mental productivity. Even a pleasant distraction is an interruption, and it takes time to concentrate again.
  16. 19. If you study then go off to meet friends or do something else, your mind will imprint your meeting – what you spoke about with your friends – what you did – more clearly then what you studied. Your study information becomes weaker and you will remember less. DO YOUR STUDY LAST

  29. 32. Speed reading - the essential elements Before you start to learn any particular speed reading technique, you need to consider that all speed reading techniques rely on three essential elements: 1. A desire to improve you reading speed; 2. A willingness to give new ideas a chance; and 3. Motivation, discipline and continued practice. Without these three key elements, no speed reading technique is going to succeed.
  30. 33. SPEED READING Techniques: <ul><li>- Skimming </li></ul><ul><li>(2) - first sentence reading </li></ul><ul><li>(3) - Group wording </li></ul><ul><li>BAD HABITS TO GET RID OF – </li></ul><ul><li>sub vocalization - speak out the words </li></ul><ul><li>digressing - re-reading and thinking you will comprehend it better </li></ul>
  31. 35. When you photo-read Look at the center of the book, at the same time seeing each outer corner. Imagine that you are de-focused somewhat - that you are looking from an orange in the back of your head …

  43. 47. What some people say: <ul><li>Lipid peroxidation is a harmful aging process that occurs to fatty substances including your brain cells. Protection from this is vital for optimal brain function including improving memory. </li></ul><ul><li>Brahmi was traditionally used as an anti-anxiety, anti-fatigue and memory-strengthening herb. </li></ul><ul><li>Bacopa functions as an antioxidant to reduce damaging lipid. Vitamin E is said to help. Smoking is said to cause degeneration. </li></ul>
