Reboot your commute with the best brain boosting videos on the internet.
Whether your commute is an hour long or just 10 minutes, make sure your time is well spent by picking from one of these top 3 brain videos.
Why should you learn about all things cognitive?
Neuroscience, cognitive development and brain plasticity are all hot topics and will continue to be for years to come, thanks to new funding and new findings.
Science-backed studies which focus on discovering the ins and outs of how the brain works, how the brain develops and why brain function is so important are mind-boggling. Our latest study here at Peak – Brain Training highlighted that people with mild to moderate symptoms of depression who played Peak over a period of time showed a significant improvement in mood and cognitive abilities. And more and more studies like this are surfacing because so much is still unknown about our brains and that’s really exciting.
You may have heard of the term ‘neuroplasticity’ being thrown around left, right and centre. Well what is neuroplasticity? As Brain Works Neurotherapy puts it: “Neuroplasticity is the ‘muscle building’ part of the brain… Neuroplasticity is at work throughout life. Connections within the brain are constantly becoming stronger or weaker, depending on what is being used… Since the brain is pivotal to all we think and do, by harnessing neuroplasticity we can improve everything we do and think. Neurofeedback works with these fundamental principles of neuroplasticity to help you take control of your mind.”
By watching these top videos on cognitive development and neuroplasticity, you’re learning about new fast-facts whilst ‘muscle-building’ your brain at the same time. Perfect. This means you’ll be able to officially call yourself a neurohacker – or brain hacker if you prefer.
Plus, you’ll find out why cognitive psychologists and neuroscientists believe that cognitive development isn’t just for young children – it’s for grown ups too.
So what is brain power really all about? Over to these top brain videos to explain:
20 mins – ‘Neurohacking: rewiring your brain’
Don Vaughn PhD student (and DJ may we add) discusses brain hacking and the amazing powers of the human brain! Plus, he talks about his personal experience with finding a hole in his brain whilst studying neuroscience. Check out his TEDxUCLA talk below:
15 mins – ‘A Map of The Brain’
Brain scientist Allan Jones goes into detail about mapping the brain and defining how it’s all connected. His Ted Talk ‘A Map of The Brain’ is the perfect video on neuroscience.
50 mins – ‘The Brain That Changes Itself’
’The Brain That Changes Itself – Full documentary’ explores the positives and the more challenging sides of neuroplasticity.
