A Better Memory Just Takes a Little Imagination

Source: Ultimate Memory

You've probably heard the joke about the man who was offered a million dollars – all he had to do was to not think about a pink camel.

Naturally, he didn't win, because as soon as he heard those words, the image of a pink camel popped into his head. And now it's in your head too, isn't it?

Our brains take the words we hear, and even the words we think, and process them using all of the other areas of the brain as well, including those that focus primarily on vision, touch, and smell.

Scientists Find the Brain's 'Misery Molecule'

Scientists have found the brain's 'misery molecule' believed to be responsible for all of our feelings of stress and anxiety. 

Researchers believe that the protein - named CRF1 - could also be linked to depression. 

A team from Heptares Therapeutics, a medical company based in Hertfordshire, used one of the world's most powerful x-ray machines to study the brain's pituitary gland.

How Dale Carnegie Self-Helped Charles Manson

Dale Carnegie Training, the self-help program that's shaped the lives of such people as Warren Buffett, Johnny Cash, and Emeril Lagasse, can claim an additional ardent disciple: Charles Manson.

In his new book, Manson: The Life and Times of Charles Manson, author Jeff Guinn credits Carnegie training with transforming Manson from "a low-level pimp" to the "frighteningly effective sociopath" who created a cult of killers in the late 1960s.

Manson took classes in How to Win Friends and Influence People, based on Carnegie's iconic book, while doing time for car theft in a California federal prison in 1957. "It was critical in shaping how he manipulated people," says Guinn, noting that the young convict told people he'd enrolled to get strangers to open up to him.

The Science of Speed Reading

In work that may one day narrow the gap between speedy, voracious readers and slower, disinterested ones, researchers at New York University (N.Y.U.) have determined that three different mechanisms are used to decode the words in a particular sentence.

The three processes: phonics (a letter by letter sounding out of words); contextual clues (earlier parts of sentences that help readers anticipate upcoming words); and holistic word recognition, or the physical shape of words.

"It's obvious that people must use all three kinds of information to read," says Denis Pelli, an N.Y.U. professor of psychology and neuroscience and senior author of the study published this week in PLoS ONE. "It was far from obvious…that you can turn on and off each of the three kinds of information and that you can attribute a percentage of the reading rate to each."

They Want to Beam Ads Directly Into Your Brain

Sky Deutschland has developed technology to transfer adverts from train windows directly and silently into commuters' heads.

Passengers leaning their head against the window will "hear" adverts "coming from inside the user's head", urging them to download the Sky Go app.

The proposal involves using bone conduction technology, which is used in hearing aids, headphones and Google's Glass headset, to pass sound to the inner ear via vibrations through the skull.

Thinking About Money Can Make You More Evil

Money may not be everything, but it's probably more than you think. In fact, the effects of moolah on the mind are so strong that money can make you a bad person without realizing it.

That's the conclusion drawn by new research from Maryam Kouchaki at Harvard University and Kristin Smith-Crowe of the University of Utah. In four separate studies, they found that people who were first primed with money-related words or images were more likely to make unethical decisions or lie than those who had seen neutral ones.

Thoughts about money made the study's participants more likely to agree to things like hiring a candidate because he had confidential information that could benefit the company, or stealing a ream of paper from their employer for their home printer.

Lust For Life: Breaking the 120-year Aging Barrier

In rich countries, more than 80% of the population today will survive past the age of 70. About 150 years ago, only 20% did. In all this while, though, only one person lived beyond the age of 120. This has led experts to believe that there may be a limit to how long humans can live.

Animals display an astounding variety of maximum lifespan ranging from mayflies and gastrotrichs, which live for 2 to 3 days, to giant tortoises and bowhead whales, which can live to 200 years. The record for the longest living animal belongs to the quahog clam, which can live for more than 400 years.

If we look beyond the animal kingdom, among plants the giant sequoia lives past 3000 years, and bristlecone pines reach 5000 years. The record for the longest living plant belongs to the Mediterranean tapeweed, which has been found in a flourishing colony estimated at 100,000 years old.

Losing Weight Can Improve Your Memory

In addition to just generally being good for you slimming down to a healthy weight can improve your memory and increase brain activity.

Swedish researchers found that older, overweight women who dieted went on to score better in memory tests after they had lost weight.

Previous studies had shown that obese people have worse episodic memory – the ability to remember events that happen during your life – but the new findings suggest this may be reversible, the scientists said.

7 Life Lessons from the Legendary Bruce Lee

By Chris Cains / Source: Pelmanism Powers

Bruce Lee is an iconic figure who should need no introduction. He helped to popularize martial arts in western society and impressed on the big screen with his amazing action movies.

From Bruce Lee's iconic role as Kato in The Green Hornet television series to his remarkable starring roles in films like Enter the Dragon, Bruce Lee was a thoroughly entertaining man. The screen presence that the man possessed was undeniable. Lee influenced the generations after him in multiple ways. Many modern mixed martial artists site Bruce Lee's martial arts techniques and overall philosophy to the art of hand-to-hand combat as a huge inspiration for their becoming martial artists.

Though he is probably most famous as an action movie star and creator of the Jeet Kune Do martial arts style, Lee also had an incredible outlook on life. Many of his quotes and overall philosophy on how to live life are still inspiring people today. In this article we will take a look at some of the advice Lee had to give.

Human Head Transplant Now Possible, Claims Neurosurgeon

The first ever human head transplant is now possible, a neurosurgeon has claimed.

Dr Sergio Canavero believes that the technology now exists that will allow surgeons to carry out the Frankenstein-style procedure, which has been tested out on animals since 1970.

Up until now there has been no way to successfully reconnect the spinal cord, leaving the subjects paralysed from the point where the transplant was connected.

Recent advances have meant that re-connecting the spinal cord is now possible, and it is believed that the breakthrough means that previously fatal diseases could be cured.

I Am Money

By Greg Habstritt 

Most people think they know me.
They don't.
I am not what most people think I am. I am not the paper in your wallet, or the coins that jingle in your purse. I am not quietly sitting in your bank account, hoping to be used one day.
You cannot see me, feel me or touch me.
I am an idea. I am energy.
I'm neither good nor evil. I am only what you decide that I am, and I fulfill the role that you create for me.
I don't care how smart you are, where you live, what you do, or where you come from.
All I care about is your energy.
Your energy decides what thoughts you have, and therefore your thoughts will determine the relationship you have with me.
I have very simple needs, and simple rules.
I am infinite.

'Psychic Attack' at Japanese School Sends 18 to Hospital

In a fantastically strange bit of news from the Land of the Rising Sun, a "psychic attack" straight out of a Stephen King novel was reported at an all-girls school, sending over a dozen to the hospital and shaking up the student body.

Last Wednesday at the well-known prep school Kamigori High in Hyogo, Japan, emergency services were called out and a reported 18 girls were taken to two separate hospitals after what was described as a bizarre, hour long "state of panic" during which dozens of teen girls began hyperventilating.

Philippine School Closed Due to 'Evil Spirits'

Classes were suspended Thursday at Isaac Lopez Integrated School in Mandaluyong City after around 20 students aged between 12 and 16 started acting strangely—screaming, crying, fainting and convulsing—prompting claims that they were possessed by evil spirits.

Julie Esparagoza, a Grade 8 teacher at the public school, said the incident started shortly after 9 a.m. and initially involved two girls from her section.

She said that she and her students were in a classroom when one of the girls suddenly stood up and began acting strangely while the other lost consciousness.
