After watching this, your brain will not be the same | Lara Boyd | TEDxVancouver

  • Опубликовано: 15 дек 2015
  • In a classic research-based TEDx Talk, Dr. Lara Boyd describes how neuroplasticity gives you the power to shape the brain you want. Recorded at TEDxVancouver at Rogers Arena on November 14, 2015.
    RU-clip Tags: brain science, brain, stroke, neuroplasticity, science, motor learning, identity, TED, TEDxVancouver, TEDxVancouver 2015, Vancouver, TEDx, Rogers Arena, Vancouver speakers, Vancouver conference, ideas worth spreading, great idea,
    Our knowledge of the brain is evolving at a breathtaking pace, and Dr. Lara Boyd is positioned at the cutting edge of these discoveries. In 2006, she was recruited by the University of British Columbia to become the Canada Research Chair in Neurobiology and Motor Learning. Since that time she has established the Brain Behaviour Lab, recruited and trained over 40 graduate students, published more than 80 papers and been awarded over $5 million in funding.
    Dr. Boyd’s efforts are leading to the development of novel, and more effective, therapeutics for individuals with brain damage, but they are also shedding light on broader applications. By learning new concepts, taking advantage of opportunities, and participating in new activities, you are physically changing who you are, and opening up a world of endless possibility.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at

    I hate titles like this video. I feel it's greedy to get you to watch and it doesn't change your life. So most or if not all are a lie and it's not trustworthy.

    I believe this is wrong. Someone becomes good at a skill not necessarily due to a natural ability but a number of factors when introduce. Everyone has the ability to draw and it can be taught as an example it is not a genetic thing. You might feel you have a better predisposition but I think again this is down to your own intelligence, if you enjoy it because you feel you are good at it etc..

    She got you in the beginning by saying she is expert in this field or in other words much better and more qualified than you. It means you will believe her everything she will say. By saying your brain will not be the same, she just put the thought in your mind. doesnt necessarily mean that it will happen. She didnt give any concrete examples of how to improve or change the way you thing and learn things which makes this video just same as other motivational books. Theory, bla bla, theory and again the same. Everyone knows the theory and if it was such simple everyone would be smart. To conclude, this video helps you to make first step and do research by yourself but it is not that helpful as many people in comment section think it is. God bless

    🙏PRACTICE THE WAY YOUR BRAIN REQUIRES..!!!!... don't copy...walk on your path FEARLESSLY.....and SAVE... your 15mins...😉
    Key points...
    1) Our brain works {chemically, neurologically (transferring messages through neurons) and functionally}
    2) chemically brain helps you to learn short term memories☺️
    3) with the help of neurons you can convert your short term memory into long ones and... practicing something on a regular basis improvises the connection between neurons 😎
    4) Brain never your each and every action( whether physical or emotional) affects your brain
    5) Adapt those behaviour which helps you in learning...and leave those which do not..🤗...
    And then...

    So what is the novelty about what she says
    It seems to me after watching this video she discovered that the brain is dynamic so what is the big deal. She reminds me of a lecturer that walked into a classroom without preparing a lesson. She simply goes on and on for a period of time till the bell rings,What did I learn about this long boring lecture simply that the brain is different from when I started listening to her boring speech
    The lecture about nothing

    I think the doctor Boyd is perfectly right. The life is continuously changing is fluid and so it's for all around us and inside us. There is nothing static in the universe and our brain our consciousness are the universe mirror. The doctor Boyd studies remember to me the great ancient Indian doctrine. Maybe it's time for science and consciousness to follow the same core : Life is a miracle.

    So basically brain works like a classical computer (apart from neuroplastic change). Short term chemical changes help in short term performance but are gone after restart (RAM). Long term structural changes (Hard Drive) are saved for a longer perioids of time. Interesting stuff!
