Change Your Story, Change Your Life

Learn how you can change the background stories running through your mind. Have you ever listened to a friend or family member introducing themselves to someone they’ve just met, and noticed how they often say the same things at each introduction?

How Drumming Changed The Way My Brain Processes Music

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.

His teacher, Plato, had discussed madness extensively and divided it into different types; mainly clinical insanity and creative insanity — the divine one which inspires seers and poets.
