<![CDATA[Yesterday, while working on the development of ArlieSpeaks Media, LLC projects, I attended the NYU Computational Neuroscience Symposium, which offered updates on the research efforts of faculty and students. The brain remains a mystery though heavily researched.
The brain's capacity for recovery and plasticity are of personal interest to me having experienced closed head trauma and from direct observations of my Mom's battle with Alzheimer's. It is my hope to bring even greater awareness to these issues and to find solutions.
From the symposium, I saw promise for the retraining of the brain beyond human behavior. I also saw, more clearly, the potential for shifting the way in which the brain processses through its framework.
While psychology and science, typically provide solutions for matters involving the brain, I believe that those who experience issues impacting the brain, along with caregivers, are in a position to make value contributions to the improvement of brain function and performance.
There's a Santiago Ramón y Cajal quote, "Any man could, if he were so inclined, be the sculptor of his own brain." I believe this to be possible. I'm not certain, however, of the extent to which each has the capacity to effect the desired change. It may be as basic as a matter of fact and determination or as complex as a team of professionals guiding those interested in sculpting their brain. Whatever the case may be, the individual will, to improve and advance, is the common denominator for success.
The symposium was a great opportunity to shape ideas I've held and worked on developing for quite some time. And, I was further encouraged to believe that my projects will help others to improve their condition post trauma or in managing diseases like Alzheimer's.
For those managing trauma or diseases of the brain, I wish you strength and encourage you to remain focused upon your recovery. To the caregivers, GOD bless you and remain encouraged. Caregivers are so very needed, even if those for whom you are caring cannot express their appreciation directly.
I look forward to sharing updates as the developments continue for ArlieSpeaks Media, LLC.
