Ever wonder how our brains work in everyday life?
As NLPers when we are helping make a change – what we are seeking to do – is train our own or another person’s brain and nervous system to change its wiring, to get it to go from preferring “this” to preferring “that”. The last fifteen years have seen remarkable progress in our understanding of the brain and its ongoing capacity to change. There is a lot of brilliant research going on in the field of neuroscience and neuroplasticity.
The BBC have just finished a 4 part series on the mysteries of the brain and it covers many cool insights.
In it Professor Barry Smith shares the latest answers on fascinating questions like:
– Why do some people see numbers as coloured?
– Do we have five or twenty-five senses?
– How much of the brain do we need to understand language?
– Do we decide how to act before we know about it?
