Insight is the power that helps create new memories in the brain
on 01 May 2020

A marvellous study that epitomizes how hypnosis works, it's about visualizing a different representation of an issue, connecting the dots . . . creating a newer more empowering outcome - Simple really!

Solving life's puzzle one memory at a time!

Scientists from Radboud University have visualized -- for the first time -- how the brain recombines memories of past events when these are complemented by new information. Scientific paper Current Biology published their results on March 30. In a more modern context, this process is called memory consolidation. In even more context, we see it often on our mobile devices and know it as, an app upgrade. The point where an already established set of memories, in the form of a code (brain language), have new information added to the existing base memory. This leaves us with an enhanced memory if it is a positive upgrade, or a corrupted/distorted one if it is a negative one. Life, as an experience, is a consequence of these processes!

Hypnotherapy is a unique way of reconsolidating old memories but also an empowering way of creating new memories, even if those new memories are merely adaptions, albeit different, of the old memory. If you want to make changes to the way your brain works, or how it replays old memories of past experiences, especially ones, seen from a different perspective, that bring about a different experience of life, Then, you must definitely experience hypnosis!

Hypnotherapy stands out as one of the most effective strategic life management methods there is, especially in its ability to promote clear thinking and good states of mental wellness. The behaviours that make life challenging are often a result of too much stress, too little or poor quality sleep and too little by way of mental and emotional clarity! So, to get or take back control of your mind and your life, it makes perfect sense to use a methodology that addresses the subconscious brain's role in perpetuating negative, vague and ambiguous states of mind. Hypnosis helps us to create calm relaxing states of mind that make life work better! If you would like to address any concerns you have in this direction, or, if you just want the ability to make your life feel better, then why not make an appointment for a Free Consultation? Hypnosis gives you the ability to have a good life! 

My objective is to help people understand how and why we become illogically trapped into emotional experiences that may actually be happening but for reasons, we may never have imagined! If you want to know more about Hypnotherapy, why not make an appointment for a Free Consultation?

The Research:

We've all had that 'Aha!' moment when pieces of a puzzling problem seem to fall into place as we gain insight into a previously obscured solution. But what happens in our brains when we think 'Aha!'? That was the question that Branka Milivojevic, Alejandro Vicente-Grabovetsky and Christian Döller, researchers from the Donders Institute at Radboud University, sought to answer.

Sims for science
Branka and her colleagues used The Sims 3 life-simulation game to make animated videos of life-like events which they showed to participants whose brain activity was monitored using an MRI scanner. They found that after people realized how some events fit together into a story, the memories of those events were joined together -- just like pieces of a puzzle -- to form a new memory of the entire story. This effect could be seen in the hippocampus and medial prefrontal cortex: brain regions involved in memory for personal, autobiographical, events.

Recombining memories
This is the first time scientists have been able to visualize how the brain flexibly recombines memories of past events when new information comes to light. This research has important implications for knowledge acquisition in educational settings. It suggests that teachers can aid learning, not only by explicitly providing the context for new material as they already do but also by pointing out links within previously learned material, thus eliciting reorganization of neural representations of knowledge and the accompanying formation of an integrated "big picture.”
