Carlsbad Current-Argus Students learn about brain drain, 31 Aug 2005 [cached]
And thanks to Tim Burns, director of the Educare Institute in Santa Fe, two different groups of Carlsbad High School students each attended a one-day session where he discussed facts about brain development, structures and function, methods to develop study skills and the effects of drugs and alcohol on the brain.
Burns spoke to the kids about the different types of brain waves, having them trace the types of waves in the air with their hands as they discussed each one.Delta, for instance, is the type of brain wave seen during sleep.It is much larger and slower than alpha waves, which is more like an ocean wave and is seen during the brain's idle moments or the beta wave, which is during the awake and alert stage.All of these stages are important, he said.But some are better for certain activities.In fact, when relaxing, the brain goes into alpha wave state, which often corresponds to the most creative thoughts and solutions to problems."Thomas Jefferson did this," he said, adding that Jefferson would sit in a chair relax himself completely with short cat-naps.Upon waking, he would immediately write down all the ideas he had during that time.Burns said Albert Einstein credited his imagination with many of the ideas he came up with as well.For optimum brain function, Burns lead the students through various rhythmic exercises and breathing procedures such as circular breathing, where the person holds down one nostril and breathes through the other, alternating sides in turn.He said this type of exercise puts each side of the brain in equal dominance, which is called hemispherical synchronization.
"I always learn from Tim.
