On the Net moods are infectious

It seems that our Facebook newsfeed can have a considerable impact on our feelings and emotions.

 

Want a well-balanced kid? Give them a guitar.

Research conducted by the University of Vermont has found that musical training and appreciation could help children and teenagers focus their attention, control their emotions and diminish their anxiety.

 

Sleep Connecting Hemispheres

In case you didn’t have enough reasons to make sure your kids get a healthy night’s sleep, researchers have shown via EEGs that while children sleep, connections between the left and right hemispheres of the brain strengthen by up to 20%.

Although the effect of this is unknown, researchers believe it to be strong evidence of brain maturation, allowing for children’s brains to grow more rapidly.

 

The Oblivious Anxious?

Being anxious has long been thought to be associated with hypersensitivity, to being more prone to extreme reactions. But research now suggests that although anxious people appear more sensitive, those more extreme reactions might not be caused by hypersensitivity at all.

 

Sleep Boosts Kids' Academic Performance

Getting your kids to sleep at a regular, consistent hour can be tedious for parents, yet studies demonstrate that an efficient sleep can hold tremendous learning advantages for children.  ‘Sleep efficiency’ is a gauge of sleep quality that compares the amount of actual sleep with the total time spent in bed.

 

Environmental Sedation!

Your anxiety may have a far greater effect than you anticipated.

One of the leading anxiety medications, Diazepam, has been detected in potentially harmful amounts across river systems in the UK, and is already believed to be changing the natural behaviour of marine life.

 

Good Sleep = Good Memory

For many of us, our dreams often pertain to what we have seen or been thinking about just before we fall asleep. It seems that this can be used as a learning advantage according to a new study by University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein. The study involved showing healthy children and adults various emotional inducing pictures in the evening, monitoring their brain activity while they slept, then testing their recollections in the morning.

 

Welcome to our Blog!

Hi Everyone, and welcome to our Blog! 

Here you will be able to read lots of highly informative and up to date articles about the brain, brain health and brain science, and many helpful pieces about the latest research into various mental and physical health conditions.

Today we will get things moving by publishing several items - but generally you can expect 2 articles to be added each week, one on the weekend and one mid-week.  And they will all be worth reading!

Our blog has been a long time coming because we have been busy perfecting and refining our products and product packages, and generally redesigning our website.

We are excited about our new look website, which will soon have not just a blog, but also a very unique Health Hub to update you on the latest tips and advice on a range of health conditions. 

This Hub will offer many helpful and downloadable resources - even online courses that could help you in dealing with important health issues.

Over the next few months we also aim to partner with a number of other helpful and dynamic blog sites to exchange information, ideas, articles and helpful products, so watch out for guest content on our site!

Thanks for visiting, and happy reading.
