10 Ways to Strengthen Brain Powered By Docstoc
					Being smart was not going for it spontaneous. In addition to genetic factors there are some ways that is
used to increase your intelligence. If you wish, you can follow the 10 steps recommended alternative
following:

1. Sport
Believed to increase the capacity of the brain for a few years, but scientists have found new evidence that
shows the relationship exercises with physical and mental health.

A study from the University of Cambridge claimed jogging several times a week can stimulate the brain.
By walking for some days, hundreds of thousands of new brain cells will grow to be an effect on the
formation of memories and memories.

So it can improve the ability to recall memories without confusion on cognitive tasks and can
memerlambat mental breakdown in old age.

More recently, scientists have also found that exercise is also able to release a protein called "noggin".
Proteins that will act as a counter-agent to other proteins, such as bone morphogenetic proteins. Thus
stimulating an increase in the division of brain stem cells, the brain remains nimble and active as we get
older.

Research also shows strong production of "noggin" can prevent age-related brain such as Alzheimer's.

2. Siesta
Scientists suspect that napping has a significant impact on the brain's memory capacity. Recent research
has found that sleeping for an hour in the afternoon increase brain power and dramatically improve the
ability to learn new facts and tasks.

Sleep after lunch also serve as a regenerative aid, allowing the brain to keep that memory is retained
while new incoming information.

The researchers found that those who remained awake throughout the day tend to be more difficult to
learn new tasks, so experts assume that the long-term impact of a nap is to prevent degenerative mental
illness.

3. Foods Rich in Magnesium
Foods rich in magnesium such as spinach and broccoli are believed to enhance memory and brain power
food. The latest study, published in the journal Neuron found that increased brain magnesium can help
the learning process both young and old.

4. Sun
Scientists have discovered that the sun can increase your intellect and prevent dementia. Intake of
vitamin D can be obtained from the sun, but vitamin D can also be found in oily fish oil. Which can
improve the ability to keep the brain in top condition remains active as you age.

In addition, in the Journal of Neurology found that the association between increased vitamin D intake
affects the processing of information more quickly, especially in men over the age of 60 years.

5. Mow
The researchers said the chemicals were found when mowing the lawn can not only reduce stress and
make people happier, but it can also prevent mental decline in old age.

Australian scientists claim that the scent of freshly cut grass works directly on the brain, especially in the
area of emotion and memory. Even when this is released a perfume that smelled cut grass that can be
used for creating a sense of relaxation and stimulates individual brain around it.

6. Sex and Chocolate
Books by Simon Wootton and Terry Horne has claimed that eating dark chocolate improve sex, and
follow the tradition of Scandinavia, who choose to have cold meat for breakfast can improve brain power.

This book, analyzed how diet, environment and stress affect mental capacity. They assert, brain capacity
is always considered in terms of genetics, but it's actually a lifestyle ditentukkan.

In addition, the material of dark chocolate influential in the process of having sex, while the energy from
the cold meat can stimulate the brain and prevent mental disorders as they age.

7. Studying music since young
A study showed that young children who take music lessons show more advanced brain development
and improved memory than those who did not take up music.

Children who are trained ditemukkan music better on memory tests associated with general intelligence
skills such as literacy, verbal memory, mathematics and IQ. The scientists who conducted this study
indicate that music can potentially increase intelligence in children from the age of four.

8. Talking to your baby
Experts say that mothers talking to babies can help their child's brain develop better. Researchers from
Northwestern University in Illinois found that words play an important role in brain development of children
even before they start talking.

The study showed that an increase in the ability to categorize the words according to their pictorial
representations at an early age can memebnatu brain development in children.

9. Playing Tetris
A study by U.S. scientists found that the classic puzzle (Tetris game) may also have a positive impact on
your brain power.

Research shows that even though the game is relatively simple compared to the sophisticated computer
games today, regular exercise can improve thinking. After playing for half an hour every day for a period
of three months, the brain is 'structural changes' in areas associated with movement, critical thinking,
reasoning, language and processing.

10. "Thinking Cap"
Currently, scientists have developed a product called "Thinking Cap" expected these devices can improve
the brain's ability to learn.

Researchers from the University of British Colombia, Vancouver, started the project after discovering that
the brain's ability to learn new tasks increased significantly when a magnetic vibration directed to the
premotor cortex, a brain area just behind the forehead. This technique can be used not only to enhance
the intellectual, but also to help those who have difficulty learning.
