What if your brain at 77 were as plastic as it was at 7? What if you could learn Mandarin with the ease of a toddler or play Rachmaninoff without breaking a sweat? A growing understanding of neuroplasticity suggests these fantasies could one day become reality. Neuroplasticity may also be the key to solving diseases like Alzheimer’s, depression, and autism. In this program, leading neuroscientists discuss their most recent findings and both the tantalizing possibilities and pitfalls for our future cognitive selves.

My parents were both orphaned during the Great Depression. They had to fight for their lives. Nothing came easily. Living on the streets. Getting passed from one family to someone else. I think of what they must have endured... yet they were happy, healthy, loving, successful, and enthusiastic. Dad passed at 91, mom at 87. At the times of their deaths they were sharp and focused. Amazing.

The most important thing is the drive, instinct, stimulation to learn. When one feels that there is nothing to worry about in the environment, that drive dies down. But if the environment keep changing, if someone has to constantly adapt to his/her environment to survive - the learning process has to continue. So, there is nothing like 'time's up' in neuroplasticity theory. It's another sensory driven outcome model which is there always, will be there throughout our life span.

There is one thing that intrigued me a lot, and it was the importance of brain stability over time. I think there is one interesting connection that is between stability and nostalgia. The first impressions that shape your cultural and personal tastes tend to last longer and be impactful because they influenced each person's critical period and remains there due to our brain's growing stability afterward.

I remember being under two years old and wearing my dad's sleeper as a boat on my both feet. The sleeper was grey and my dad, towering above my like the Eiffel Tower, bending towards me kept asking for his sleeper back. Remember climbing out of my cot and crawling around the kitchen, so before walking. Being able to understand my family before being able to talk is an amazing and annoying thing! Don't know how my brain was able to process difficult words. But I know that I recognised the whole sentences, without understanding every separate word. It was like the phrase :"howareyou"; I didn't know that it contained " how" , "are" and "you"! It was just one, long word! I often recall my days as a toddler and try to find " me" , the real me, try to separate me from the acquired "me", shaped by the people and the whole environment I was brought up in. How would I have turned out if I were amongst different people, I wonder so often. Have I been changed, irreversibly changed by these people? Who am I, is the question I ask myself too often, especially now, after my darling husband's death, I'm trying to find me again, as if I were one year old, I'm trying to learn to walk unaided and I'm still so scared of letting go.🥀

You can still learn. Jealousy is a waste of energy. It is actually the openness to learn that is the most powerful. Clearing out the mental clutter (the constructs, conditioning, and narratives) that inhibit learning are key. Finding your individual modalities for learning is important too. Our mindset is powerful. Belief is what precedes anything, positive or negative…it’s rarely even the truth, but we live out whatever belief is the strongest. Our subconscious is so powerful, it controls 95% of our behaviors (and beliefs). Uncovering that is empowering.

Nim, in discussing early childhood plasticity uses terms such as difficulty, challenges and trauma with the same degree of influence based solely on the experience. These terms hold a significant measure of difference both in subject and according to the childs character/personality

So long as the mind admits it doesnt know and wonders , it will always ask questions and be curious , sometimes going to great lengths to find out . If that is the case then we will never stop learning . The only difference between adult learning and childhood learning is that most of the latter is under duress . If the duress reaches the stage of cruelty then the mind tends to not want to learn it and as a result one can fail a subject due to the harshness of the teacher , and not because the youngster is stupid or the subject is very difficult . I learnt a lot at school but a heck of a lot more after I left , despite having had a matchbox size piece of my left temporal lobe ( main gyrus ) removed shortly after I left school in 1985 . It was to cure epilepsy and was 100 % . What puzzles me the most is that I dont understand how I managed to retain EVERY ability I had before and lose absolutely NOTHING . I still ask myself to this day ..............If the brain cells were each and every light bulb on earth and the wires to each were the neuro transmitters , and you cut out maybe 6 to 8 % of the wiring , then how come every bulb is still burning and none are affected ? I consider it a miracle and most amazing . Maybe it gives the Laws of Irreducible Complexity new meaning .

@Michael Lawson thanks again for your modesty. I guess it is what we prune ourselves of the 95% you mentioned that is the result of what ,who and how we are. … continually living out then the dynamics of ‘what we focus on grows ‘… consciously and (mysterious to us because we take it for granted) subconsciously !! positive or negative (like what you said about teaching ….from adults, heroes we worshipped, nurturing environment, cultures…what we love and hate or be angry about and fear…) !! I presume there was sufficient TLC for you to love what you were before your operation to prevent the pruning of the goodness in that life out…. and you had the wisdom not to be dismayed from your loss, rather… make use of the 95% to help you recover from it. Many in your shoes could not do the same and your sharing your story with them or their parents can enhance many …. their quality of life. Would love to encourage you too to learn more about the brains , like Julius Caesar and Napoleon (not that I like what they did !)… , of those who had epilepsy and could control it somewhat… (imagine all the soldiers under their command entrusting their lives to their well timed leadership in the heat of battle !!). [ I was also impressed by a neurosurgeon? cardiologist? who witnessed herself having a stroke and studied it from the inside !!].

@davidleesn Even though I internalize that question about the brain to itself , it still doesnt want to reveal anything Strange though it may be . Im still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that it cannot or will not reveal its own composition/ function to the conscious part of itself so as to inform you what to do about itself . Puzzling enough? Perhaps that challenge was meant to be so as to give itself a greater functional purpose to want to learn thereby giving it more exercise, purpose and meaning to itself. On the other hand , if each brain cell has 500 nerve endings protruding from it and only 5 % are connected due to stimulus then the remaining 95 % will be of no use. With so little potential of only 5 % I dont think it bothers to understand itself but with 95 % it would be massively intelligent and then perhaps self revealing. Dont take anything I write seriously. Im merely speculating and really know nothing of neurology other than having been a patient once upon a time.

Perhaps you were subconsciously accessing those areas of the brain of which stored certain information and thereby maintained its structure or perhaps there's some deficiency that prevented pruning. perhaps there was some subtle acknowledgement between the tasks in your life and how they could be applied to pass knowledge and skills in a lateral capacity. I've noticed a staunch difference between certain people's memory retention as well as the ability to forget. I once heard a neurologist say that the ability to forget is perhaps more useful than the ability to remember because of the sheer amount of information that comes in every moment of our lives. I also know people with tremendously powerful memories that have trouble forgetting past traumas and it effects the smoothness of their life in the present and limits their future. The ability to adapt is extremely important and if you live long enough and what you're saying is indeed true, you will likely hit a wall but you'll probably die before you get that chance to put it to the test tsotsi sort of prediction that must be chalked up to anecdotal.

Being curious at all times like a child can enhance cognitive development especially to adults.
Abshir Жыл бұрын
@DJOANNA E. DUCO vlog that is the truth. The problem people have is, not thinking about their lives by themselves and ask questions about everything and be curious but to conform to the society and the dominant opinions of the population wether it is their religion, their perception of life etc. So I invite you to believe the One and Only God Allah who has no partners and no children. Who is the owner of everything that is in the heavens and the earth. He sent many prophets like Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed (peace be upon all of them) with one message and that's to believe Allah alone and to worship him. And this world is a test. That is why horrible things are happening all over the world. it's people's doing and Allah will judge them on the judgement day. Those who believed Allah alone, were righteous, will enter eternal paradise and those who were evil by not believing God by killing other people, used to fornicate, used to steal, used to follow the lies instead of the truth and follow all kinds of desires from their bad self will enter eternal hellfire. Thank you.

Yeah, I'm actually pretty much there. I've always been there. The big problem is that with such plasticity, I can learn new things quickly and easily even at my age but it's nearly impossible to form habits. Without habits you can't mow the lawn or pay your bills or keep a constant sleep schedule or take your medications or lots of other things. After I do ANYTHING for a time, I get tired of it and want to change. The one thing I've been able to stick with for most of my life is computer programming but that's slipping away now. I don't want to do it anymore. I want to write a book and compose some music now. Also, with memory. In order to learn new things, I'm really good at forgetting old things. They're right, there's a trade-off.

A fascinating and well presented discussion . I found particularly interesting the topic of critical periods of brain development . I've often wondered if there is a percentage of adults who have experienced considerable adversity in childhood and somehow , miraculously managed to thrive not only in spite of that adversity but almost because of it . Of course this perhaps hypothetical person would need to possess enormous resiliency . Thank you for the excellent lecture .

I did that. When I was a child adversity compelled me to build resilience and self belief. I used to talk to myself in silence most of the times in my head or loudly if I find an empty space. I literally had to train encourage myself to live to not give up. There was no one who encouraged me or helped me even with a kind word or two.Only in my Schools I had received appreciation for my talent and determination as I had always been a first ranker. It was a miracle I would say. I never had any one backing me up, it was me all alone. No encouragement, only hindrance and criticism and harsh words I used to get which wounded me and hurt me to this day whenever I recall that part of my life it was long since childhood to teenage. No body would support me that I can study they said you should not and you cannot. They said you have to finish all work at house and then if you get time you can but you have to be available whenever we have work. Also they said they will assign me so much work that I will never get time and hence not study. Those days I had trained my brain myself to belief in myself and love myself alone. Everybody at house said I am fool mediocre since I was born and no body would educate me. But slowly that child was deciding to back herself up. In my training to myself I learnt to believe and unleash my potential. As a result I was the first topper and had the highest performance in school. People who gave me so much pain were all in shock. Then I competed my engineering with medals and awards and was recruited in an MNC in university Campus. I’ve been able to support the less privileged since then. Back then I didn’t know What I was going through is neuro plasticity. So I always say we have immense potential inside. We need to unleash it. Foremost is believing you can.

Learning Physics in my 40s at a Top Ten school in the subject. I will admit, I am slower than I used to be. Hope I can get through it. Wonder if I should try Valproic acid. I have done a deep dive into the research of this subject and what I can do as a normal old dude. So far, I have seen the following. Cardio 2.5 hours in the week. Running helps with memory. Correct exercise and sleep. Also, Mindful Meditation. All of these have studies that back increased learning and focusing by targeting the Hippocampus. I have also recently read that Dancing helps too. I love break dancing.... but may have to stay with up-rocking instead of power moves and down-rocks. I'm not 16-22 anymore. Hope this helps. Open to any other information anybody can share. I'm serious about finishing this degree.

2:00 This is why child abuse is so devastating. If a child is neglected and/or abused, it keeps those connections that help it in the abusive environment, but it loses those connections that would have allowed it to learn to be a normal, social human being. By the time it is a teenager, that child will not be able to form normal social relations, and what it learned to survive (fight or hide) will be worse than useless. The child will be unable to form normal social relations, and his or her behavior (fighting or hiding) will be harmful to those around them. If you want to destroy someone's potential, abuse them as a child. In many ways child abuse is even worse than outright murder. If you murder someone you simply end their existence. This is bad enough, but if you abuse a child then you destroy that person's ability to be as happy as they otherwise would have. You actually destroy not only the child's life, but you also have a share in the responsibility in the destruction of the lives that abused child will go on to destroy.

A similar case in a young child learnt violin playing through the Suzuki mother tongue method of hearing first and her eyes corrected themselves in two years, she played in an orchestra in a few more years of learning after that. It maybe like the cataract operation mentioned here ( not knowing your age )… but Terry, no harm in closing your eyes and learn music by ears IF YOU LOVE MUSIC…. (start singing or whistling then on to simple instruments like tin whistle or recorders…and see what happens…like doing brain gym exercises… I would get professional supervision… at least monitoring…should anything happens… especially e.g. driving !

How about the octopus that might be matching our brain capacity? It can learn complex tasks and has an cognitive awareness and its eight brains has been developed from scratch on a totally different evolution tree than humans. It has also shown things as gratitude. It's the closest thing to an alien lifeform we can come. If the evolution of mother nature hadn't caused the octopus mother to die after giving birth it could have passed its experiences to the next generation. As it is now a octopus has to start from scratch every time. The octopus might have matched humans without going through years of childhood if they weren't doomed to start all over again as empty sheets each time. I guess a human wouldn't perform much better under the same circumstances.

I'm sure we have all experienced that feeling, after struggling to understand some new concept, of finally understanding that concept. It is something you might call, "Oh, I see now." I wonder how many times, from the time we are born until we understand what "Oh, I see now." means in whatever language we grow up with. This is a feeling I had much more often as a child, mainly because so many concepts were new then, then I feel it now, but I don't remember the first time it happened.

I'm in my 40's now, and it's a bit rare but I still have those moments. It's usually after long progressive research + thought on a subject. Like spending time really trying to figure something out, eventually it clicks, as if your subconscious has filled in the gaps and given you the understanding. Sometimes it takes years, but I think it depends on complexity of the subject, your effort and flexibility of thought. Like u say I think as we age we put ourselves in positions like this less and less, compared to our youth, so the aha moments are more rare but still possible.

I don't think I really had aha moments as a child. As a kid literally nothing clicked. It was like throwing sand at at a bag full of oranges. Then I hit 20 and everything started to click all of a sudden. All those things that weren't really explained to me well just boom I understood. I wonder if such phases can be delayed.

I guess older people are happier because of worse neuroplasticity. When you're used to an environment and a good new thing comes you become happier, but as time passes your brain turns that thing into normal, then for older people's brain it's harder due to the neuroplasticity deficit.

I suffered a major brain injury in june 2020, had to get chunks of my skull removed from my brain. I had to relearn how to live again at 43. Started treatment with psilocybin within a month of the injury. Went from not knowing who or where I was every morning to back to a normal life for the most part in 13 months. Within the next year I should be back to work as a journeyman carpenter. Psilocybin helps with neurogenisis. It gave me my life back

@BlueYoshi That's okay BlueYoshi! Your English is far better than my German. I'll tidy it up for you because I enjoyed your comment :) "After a traumatic brain injury, depending on the nature and location, patients may experience things like decreased memory (short and/or long-term), affected speech ability and so forth. But, because these affected brain areas are no longer viable to blood flow, the 'healthy' portions of the brain may receive increased blood flow, in such a way that allows for extra nourishment and growth. In the case of sudden-onset of unexplained exceptional musical ability post-recovery, if the parietal lobes of the brain and their connections are preserved that would help explain this phenomenon. The parietal lobe region is heavily involved in visual, spatial-orientation and sensory perception, and likely to be significant contributors." Hope I preserved the essence of your comment! Much love
BlueYoshi Жыл бұрын
The brain is damaged and for whatever reason the person who had the brain injury. Some things like are decreased liek short/longterm memory, speech ability social intelligence and so on. But because those brain areas are weakened the bloodflow to other areas are increased. In this case it would be the areas for Visual thinking and sensory perception (parietal lobes of the brain). I hope this was satisfying and clear explanation! 👍 (Iam from germany so my english may not be that good).

Some of this is already known. Feldenkrais therapy, for instance, in which the somatic brain is "talked to" by the soma (body) in retraining brain relationship to body. There is surely some brain plasticity involved there. And we had, at least through Ericson, empirically derived models of stages of mevelopmet/maturation of the child, apparently correlated with brain stages. (THAT would be something if they were NOT!) Which-- brain, genetics, environment, factor XYZ-- is cause, which effect, which correlate? What if the same kind of relationship (e.g., soma talks to somatic brain), exists, for instance, using the eyes to talk to and repattern or reprogram vision AND even its pathologies? Just as Feldenkrais (a physicist--interesting isn't it?) demonstrated a previously unknown way of the body affecting brain affecting body, perhaps we just don't yet know HOW to do the eye one. There is breathwork and correcting the jaw for asthma and allegies. Of course, these therapies show no promise , as does neuroscience, for the further aggrandizement of the pharmaceutical industriy with their dominance and huge profits, to say nothing of their short-circuiting of the discovery of more body-plasticity forms of healing., It could be said, well those more natural forms have had thousands of years to show up and have failed to do so. But I would say I would like to see how well they would fare now if they accrue as many research dollars as is now "invested" in neuroscience. Maybe those forms come into being and are passed over and lost again and againaround the world because there IS NO PROFIT IN THEM. Or maybe NOW is their time to come to fruition just as many consider nOW is the time for neuroscience to come to fruition, And let us not forget the sobering fact that while making those huge profits for shareholders the pharmacy guys are simultaneously cultivating-- through doctors-through-prescriptions as well as millions, perhaps billions, in advertsing each year----more and more drug dependencies for more and more people. Bah humbug on their "disinterested" independence.

Ok I did get a lot of treatment for a while. But I just don't think I am processing information the same anymore. Everything used to be so easy for me mentally before this. I was considered wierd as I thought myself to read by 1 to 2 yrs of age and was doing complex math by 6. But now I still love to learn but it's has been a struggle ever since.

[29:52] I strongly disagree and would expect it to be connected with the way a child or a group of children's create a shared game. Those that end up creating the game are logically more plastic thinkers, their task requires it. But then they grow up and "Hello world" of the elder children's game, the children are then presented to the game of life, but some children already created their own ideal from a strong foundation and can see discrepancy and intolerances. Not all will succeed to hold on to their own observations and creations in (their unique stubborn autistic way) mostly because of group pressure, the monetary system and quick fix laws.

First: Thank you for the name inserts! Second: the "closing of doors" is not final. It can be reversed and learning improved even in mature brains. Interesting would be to find the quantum biological reasons for keeping synapsis open or others closed. Third: NIM is a very intelligent young lady. Please reduce the amount of "so" in your statements. Last: When she talks about the "dependency phase" of human children compared to animals, she forgets to mention a clear relationship between the expected lifespan! Elefants and whales for example spend also year with their children. What destroys most open synapsis are bad teachers in school - and there is plenty of supply. In general: the need for reduction of parental dependency arises always with the sexual maturity. But all that only applies to mammals. It would be important to do the opposite of what's done in our society now! Not reduce the power of parents and increase the power of institutional education, doing the opposite unless it is really proven when and how parents do things wrong. Most of them - I can tell you - don't.
