Cognitive Focus Areas
Did you know?
Your brain is a little Powerhouse
Our brains are full of neurons, a common estimate is that each of us has about 100 billion of them. Whenever we conjure up a thought it is because electrical signals are transmitted between these neurons along our neural pathways. As long as we are alive, this process never stops. Each neuron in your body generates a small amount of electricity. Multiply that energy by 100 billion and you will have enough electricity to power a small light bulb. The next time you see a light bulb used as a metaphor for a new idea you will now know why.
No Rest for Your Brain
Believe it or not, although rest is quite important for normal cognitive function, your brain does not slow down when you go to sleep. On the contrary, it actually becomes quite active. The science of sleep is still being explored but one popular theory is that the brain does its most important work during sleep – routing and organizing all of the important information from the day into memory. In fact, our brain is so active at night it secretes hormones that immobilize our bodies during sleep so that we don’t injure ourselves while attempting to act upon any of the ideas going on in our head while we sleep!
Yawning keeps your brain cool
Normally, we associate yawns to boredom or fatigue. Scientists once thought that yawning was an evolutionary way to oxygenate our blood. When you yawn it expands your pharynx and larynx, allowing large amounts of air to pass into your lungs. Research out of University at Albany now suggests that people yawn to cool off their brains. The theory is that sleep deprivation overheats the brain, and yawning is actually our way to dissipate this heat.
