Mind To Matter: How Your Brain Creates Material Reality

(Dr. Mercola) Dawson Church,1 Ph.D., is a leader in the energy psychology movement, one of the most common forms being the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), which I have promoted for years. Church investigated and built on the EFT techniques developed by Gary Craig2 in the 1990s (which in turn was a derivative of the founder of energy tapping, Roger Callahan’s, work3).

Scientists Explain How The Growth of A Baby’s Brain “Literally Requires Positive Interaction”

(Alanna Ketler) Loving your child will physically translate into a larger, healthier brain than children who suffer from extreme neglect, abuse and trauma. It’s true that children need to be loved and supported and not just so they can feel good about themselves, but so they can physically develop the way they are supposed to.

How the Brain Distinguishes Speech From Noise

(Neuroscience News) For the first time, researchers have provided physiological evidence that a pervasive neuromodulation system – a group of neurons that regulate the functioning of more specialized neurons – strongly influences sound processing in an important auditory region of the brain. The neuromodulator, acetylcholine, may even help the main auditory brain circuitry distinguish speech from noise.

Scientists Make Monkey Brains Larger With Injection Of Human Brain Cells

(John Vibes) In an alarming experiment, researchers from Japan and Germany teamed up to see if they could increase the size of a monkey’s brain by injecting it with a specific human brain gene that directs stem cells. Scientists know the gene as ARHGAP11B. In their experiments, they were able to successfully increase the size of monkey brains with this method.
