Music can affect the way of our facial expressions

Found in Neuroscience Department





Music can be thought of as a form of emotional communication, with which the performer conveys an emotional state to the listener. This "language" is remarkably powerful - it can evoke strong emotions, and make your heart race or send tingles down your spine. And it is universal - the emotional content of a piece of music can be understood by anyone, regardless of cultural background.



Are the emotions evoked by piece of music similar… Continue

We see what we wante to see

Found in Neuroscience Department and want to share with you







People who place an emphasis on positive things and are generally optimistic are sometimes said to "see the world through rose-tinted glasses". According to a new study by Canadian researchers, this is more than just an idiom. The study, which has just been published in the Journal of Neuroscience, provides the first direct evidence that the mood we are in affects the way we see things by modulating the activity… Continue

Brain's representation of an ambiguous object

Optical illusions can tell us much about the functioning of the brain's visual system. They work because the visual system reconstructs stimuli not according to how they actually are, but by making certain assumptions about their properties in order to fill in the gaps and It is unclear exactly how this illusion works, but it probably has something to do with the brain's representation of an ambiguous object

so i looked for more infos and i found this article below in Neuroscience On… Continue

The left brain/ right brain myth



The left brain/ right brain myth

Article by Neuroscience Department





This "right brain vs left brain test" from the Herald Sun is doing the rounds on the internet today. The article contains the so-called "spinning silhouette" optical illusion (below), and states that if you see the the dancer rotating in a clockwise direction "you use more of the right side of your brain and vice versa."



You've probably heard… Continue

Turn to the small advertisements in many a Sunday magazine, says John McCrone, and you'll find something rather like this: "Are you good at logic, great at analysis and working out maths problems? Then you're probably a left-brainer . . . Want to get in touch with your… Continue

SPIRIT OF OPULENCE!

THE SPIRIT OF OPULENCE

By Thomas Troward, Excerpt from “The Hidden Power”





“It is quite a mistake to suppose that we must restrict and stint ourselves in

order to develop greater power or usefulness. This is to form the conception of

the Divine Power as so limited that the best use we can make of it is by a policy of

self-starvation, whether material or mental. Of course, if we believe that some

form of self-starvation is necessary to our producing good… Continue

Art can Influence Learning Ability

Art encourages cognition, critical thinking, and learning.



I experience daily that the current education system places great emphasis on academic development



and as a result, arts programs are being reduced or even eliminated from classrooms



And if the Educators would have received proper education they would have



recognized that the art is not enrichment activity instead the art is and should be basic to education.



Studies have shown that… Continue

A quote from my favorite Chilean Poet, Pablo Neruda.

AN ODE TO MY BELOVED FATHER

Oh my father, as a five-year-old

I walked for the first time holding your hand

On the road to the school that trained me

How to deal with the things and thoughts in my lab

But the lessons you taught me

While traveling together on life's path

On how to deal with ups and downs with inner faith

That were implanted in me with tender care

Benefited me much more

The education you gave me that turned me wise from a fool

Can never be taught in any… Continue

~Love has been mis-defined in our world for aeons~



~what most of us think of as love, is actually emotionalism, manipulation and an experience



which is given to us, rather than something we experience within and then radiate outwards~



~Love is a state of being which is known as consciousness and not an emotion~



~Physical attraction which is temporal has nothing to do with love~



~ Physical attraction is science at work~

TODAY'S DHARMA

To me, then, true criticism consists in trying to find out the intrinsic worth of the thing itself, and not in attributing a quality to that thing. You attribute a quality to an environment, to an experience, only when you want to derive something from it, when you want to gain or to have power or happiness. Now this destroys true criticism. Your desire is perverted through attributing values, and therefore you cannot see clearly. Instead of trying to see the flower in its original and… Continue

Feng Shui ; Facts or Frauds?

http://www.ubersite.com/m/53015

Empty Mind, No Mind, whatever you want to call it, is an awesome idea/practice. So very very awesome. What it has to do with interior decorating, no one knows.Because there is nothing to be known....



Most Western ideas about feng shui are utterly wrong and generally based on a variety of weird concepts pulled from European folklore and New Age marketing — which are in turn marketed as "contemporary and practical" feng shui.

Communication Between Cultures

The back ground music by Omar Akram

www.omarakram.com

Omar:"In a world where communication and understanding between cultures is sometimes difficult, I hope my music can serve as a form of international language that crosses any cultural barriers. Having lived and traveled in many countries, I have come to realize that we need to embrace aspects of each culture that make them unique and special. What some people see as problematical differences, I see as our planet's entire cultural… Continue

IF TOMORROW NEVER COMES

"If Tomorrow Never Comes"



If I knew it would be the last time

that I'd see you fall asleep,

I would tuck you in more tightly

and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.



If I knew it would be the last time

that I see you walk out the door,

I would give you a hug and kiss

and call you back for one more.



If I knew it would be the last time

I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,

I would video tape each action and word,

so I… Continue

The Indigo, Crystal, Rainbow and Star Children

The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and wayshowers. After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo adults of today. However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born, and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late twenties and early thirties who are about to take their place as leaders in the world. Indigos continued to born up to about 2000, with increasing… Continue
