My post yesterday, What if age is nothing but a mind-set?, helped get my attention on this NPR story, Curiosity: It Helps Us Learn, But Why?. I find it exciting that we are whizzes with adaptability and flexibility, that allows you to reformulate and re-‐pattern your neural connections to produce the kind of behaviors that you want. You have the power to alter your own brain, your behavior, your personality and even your reality. I am curious to learn more about neuroplasticity and excited to teach you neurohypnosis so that you can rise about your present circumstances.
Curiosity: It Helps Us Learn, But Why?
NPR, by Maanvi Singh, October 24, 2014: When the participants’ curiosity was piqued, the parts of their brains that regulate pleasure and reward lit up. Curious minds also showed increased activity in the hippocampus, which is involved in the creation of memories.
“There’s this basic circuit in the brain that energizes people to go out and get things that are intrinsically rewarding,” Ranganath explains. This circuit lights up when we get money, or candy. It also lights up when we’re curious.
When the circuit is activated, our brains release a chemical called dopamine, which gives us a high. “The dopamine also seems to play a role in enhancing the connections between cells that are involved in learning.”
Indeed, when the researchers later tested participants on what they learned, those who were more curious were more likely to remember the right answers.
