Brain performance can be improved through a combination of a number of interventions.
Here’s how to do it.
The research shows that one of the key elements in this is using a “neurivational paradigm” to teach a brain how to process and process information more efficiently.
This can be achieved by teaching the brain how different patterns of information interact with each other in the brain, as opposed to trying to memorise all of them.
The goal of learning is to train the brain to process more of the information it encounters.
It also helps to make the brain less dependent on the external world.
To do this, we need to train our brains to “feel” the environment around us.
The idea is that if we can create a “feel-good” state in the head and the brain can then process the information without distraction, then the brain will be more efficient.
And in the lab, the researchers have found that when they teach the brain a sequence of simple mental imagery exercises, the brain becomes less reliant on external stimuli and can use the external stimuli more efficiently in its task.
This is how they found that in one of their studies they had students imagine that they were riding a bicycle on a hillside and then do an obstacle course in a series of identical scenes.
The students were shown images that were either the same or different from the same scene, then instructed to imagine that the images were in reverse order.
After the first obstacle course, the students had completed the second obstacle course.
In a follow-up experiment, the same students had the same number of obstacles to complete.
This time, the “feel good” state was also observed.
But after each obstacle, the group was given the task of imagining a different image.
After imagining the same image twice, the subjects were given the same sequence of images and asked to complete the task in the same way.
When the students were given an image that matched a familiar image, the experience was similar to how the students would have completed the task had they seen the same familiar image twice.
The effect was the same, the team found.
They found that even when the task was identical, the neural activity patterns of the brain during imagery were different.
“What we found is that this sort of cognitive processing happens more in the background,” said Professor David Hargreaves, who led the study.
“We’ve found that the brain has an extra set of neurons that are actually performing a cognitive task that it is already trained to perform.”
The study was published in Nature Neuroscience.
The study is based on the work of Professor Hargreson and his colleagues.
The team also included Dr Andrew Stadler from the University of Warwick and Dr Joanna Macdonald from the Centre for Mind and Brain Sciences at the University College London.
