Engaging Neurons

Volume 4, Issue 11, November 12, 2013

The neuron-transmission pathways that the mind-brain created in infancy are our markers for the rest of our life. This is when we establish and create neurological pathways that are beneficial to our cognitive processes, understanding, and our learning abilities that will follow us throughout each person’s respective lifetime. We initially engage our five magnificent senses of smell, touch, hearing, taste, and vision to activate our neurons, neurological pathways, and stimulate each of them into forming a memory, a learned behavior, or a routine behavior.

The neurological processes are active in different regions of our brains as we previously discussed in this series (http://aida-Garcia.hubpages.com/hub/Neurological-Triggers). The mind-brain can essentially learn and develop more behaviors that are recognized through continual use and active engagement of the senses. We could even broaden our intellectual scores by and up to 20 points in IQ tests if we maintain active and engaged mind-brains. This process is also helpful for brain damaged persons who have not reached fifty to reverse the adverse effects of damage to the brain. In addition, if a child could be reached between the ages of four to ten who is learning disabled the adverse effects of the learning disability can also be reversed and new neurological pathways can be acquired. So just what kind of stimulation am I talking about?

  1. Reading
  2. Brain Games (Card)
  3. Flash cards
  4. Crosswords
  5. Detailed study
  6. Re-reading paragraphs twice
  7. Arithmetic
  8. Pre-Testing materials
  9. Artificial Intelligence survey and studies (You tube materials)
  10. Studied and factual test improvement materials
  11. Cognitive and Mega-cognitive skill tests
  12. Tutored works
  13. One on One practice quizzing and learning
  14. Scholastic learning sites or scholastic videos
  15. YouTube Broadcast yourself self-learning videos
  16. Positive and quiet environment of study

Although we gain most of our neurological pathways at infancy some 1,000 trillion it starts to taper off at the learning age when we start to develop our cognitive skills and language skills when we become toddlers. When we finally become adults our neurological pathways have been greatly reduced to about 500 neurological pathways, however, if we maintain our mind-brain and stay actively engaged in the cognitive processes to stay alert, lucid, and maintain a healthy mind-brain we will benefit the mind-brain.

When we age we fall into a mode where we rest and relax much too often that we do not actively engage our mind-brains like we did as younger adults, we become more passive and inactive, therefore falling into a disuse mode of living. When we disuse or fail to use the mind-brain actively we develop Alzheimer’s and other maladies, because we are not engaging our mind-brain.

The language skills we learn and are put into letters, words, and sentences: just like the mind of a computer or artificial intelligence (AI) requires the processes of input and output by recognizing patterns and memory takes shape in our mind-brain. At the time of this functioning process, memory and our Hippocampus is acutely activated because it is making determinations that are crucial in cognitive responses and reactions. Word development and language are routinely activated, communicated, and voiced by our parents and then our teachers in an educational environment where we learn the nuances of the alphabet, writing words, learning definitions, writing the alphabet, writing words and sentences, gathering and developing context and so on. This is what the patterns that are recognized by and learned by artificial intelligence robots or software programs. Like the synapses of our neurological system.

What is amazing is that artificial intelligence now has the ability to learn by touch, visuals, context/words, and hearing/audio. The one sense that has not been mastered by AI is smell. But, the sense of smell may not be far off for the AI robotics we have now and that will eventually become part of our future very soon. We are on a cusp of an evolutionary change but we must also be wary to carry out the activities to remain in control of our destiny.
The environment we live in is crucial in our developing an optimal intellectual mind-brain that is conducive with the optimal behaviors free of criminal intent and a bad behavior mechanism that has been affected by his or her environment. Frankly, when children are exposed to harsh environments they develop behaviors that are flawed and they acquire lower intellectual IQ development because they are either stressed by the environment, do not have the finances to finance an education, are not eating properly, and so on and so forth. The results are factual and have been studied by Dr. Richard Davidson, a professor of psychology and psychiatry at the University of Wisconsin who states that children who are raised in impoverished areas are subjected to or are at high risk for impoverished brains, it is also been studied by Bruce Perry, a neuropsychiatrist who studied this neurological process with the University of Montreal [{Kotulak, Ronald (1935- ), p.39}].
