Our Wonderful Brains

I've always been fascinated by the way our brains work. Whether or not you believe the statistic that most people only use about ten percent of their brains (and I know a few people who use a lot less than that!) it is still an amazing organ we have between our ears.

Recently someone contacted me on a business networking site with the intriguing message 'I would like you to click your Amygdala forward at all times'. I had absolutely no idea what he was talking about but, being me, I immediately researched it on Google. It turns out that your amygdala (pronounced a-MIG-duh-luh)is in your brain's frontal lobes. There are two of them, one on each side of the brain, and they are situated roughly at the half way point between your ear and the corner of your eye, about an inch inside. All kinds of wonderful things happen if you managed to activate your amygdala, or 'click it forward'. Don't just take my word for it, have a look at Neil Slade's site.

To reinforce the brilliance of our brains, I will leave you with this little gem, which I received by email. I've adapted it so as to make it unique for this blog. (You see I can't stop thinking SEO!)
