“…The pathways along which information travels through the neurons (nerve cells) of the brain can be compared with the paths through a forest. As people keep taking the same route through a forest, they wear out a path in it. And the more people who take this path, the more deeply it is worn and the easier it becomes to follow.
The same goes for our memories: the more we review them in our mind, the more deeply they are etched in our neural pathways.The fundamental characteristic of the human brain that makes learning and memory possible is its plasticity: the ability of the neurons to modify their connections to make certain neural circuits more efficient.
Efficient at what task? Usually, at expressing a new behaviour that is better adapted to the demands of our environment, and hence more likely to preserve our living organism and improve its chances of survival…”
So okay, someone should study whether – say – Sagittarians produce more serotonin or if Crab Peeps have more pronounced neural pathways in the nostalgia region of the brain.
I’ve linked to this inspirational brainiac article before but go grok it again if you are in need of a swift post-Full-Moon neuromancy session.
As i think we have just seen with the Zap Zone that is Uranus square Pluto nearly happening, the Zap Zone era of the next few years is definitely going to result in some “demands of our environment.”
Let’s all meander down some new Neural Pathways, yes?
I LOVE the lighting.
Also, visualising old Neural Pathways as being all dark, unlit and with dodgy paving now whilst others have funky lighting (like in the pic above) and smooth glam surroundings makes the ditching of crap old habits easier, yes?
