Spying on Subconscious Feelings – Part 1

Spying on Subconscious Feelings – Part 1

We spend our formative years in school, developing our rational minds, but our emotions receive no formal attention. High divorce rates, job loss, employment stress, accidents, deaths, personal struggles, changing hormones, financial problems and health issues challenge everyone’s emotional health. Yet, as a society, we stubbornly treat the development of our emotions as a low priority. Since emotions are invisible, they are treated as if they don’t exist. S

Is Psychiatry Erasing the Individual’s Unique Individuality?

Is Psychiatry Erasing the Individual’s Unique Individuality?

Since none of the 300 official mental disorders has any defining physical test for diagnosis, there is no proof they exist. Period. You could interview thousands of people who say they feel depressed, and you would find significant differences. The more you listened to their stories, the more you would be convinced of the differences. You would be splitting apart the central idea of “depression” and realizing it has no common center. This is hard for many people to believe. That’s how brainwashed they are. There are no common universal states of consciousness. It’s all unique, from person to person. Just as there is no single enlightened state of consciousness which is the same for everyone, there are no “mental disorder” states that are the same for everyone.

Women’s Brains May Be the Most Vulnerable to Alzheimer’s

Women’s Brains May Be the Most Vulnerable to Alzheimer’s

Women’s brains might be more vulnerable to the degenerative effects of Alzheimer’s disease than men’s, causing them to decline in memory and cognitive function twice as fast, according to new research that could explain why women make up two-thirds of all diagnosed Alzheimer’s cases in the US.

The finding was presented this week at the 2015 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) in Washington, DC, with the team also noting that women tend to decline more dramatically than men in cognition, function, and brain size after they’ve been in surgery or under general anaesthesia.

Humans’ Built-in GPS is our 3-D Sense of Smell

Humans’ Built-in GPS is our 3-D Sense of Smell

Like homing pigeons, humans have a nose for navigation because our brains are wired to convert smells into spatial information, new research from the University of California, Berkeley, shows. While humans may lack the scent-tracking sophistication of, say, a search-and-rescue dog, we can sniff our way, blindfolded, toward a location whose scent we’ve smelled only once before, according to the UC Berkeley study published today (June 17) in the journal PLOS ONE.

This Just in: Emotional & Rational Brains ‘physically different’

Researchers at Monash University have found physical differences in the brains of people who respond emotionally to others’ feelings, compared to those who respond more rationally, in a study published in the journal NeuroImage. The work, led by Robert Eres from the University’s School of Psychological Sciences, pinpointed correlations between grey matter density and cognitive and affective empathy. The study looked at whether people who have more brain cells in certain areas of the brain are better at different types of empathy.
