Rick Hanson discusses neuroplasticity and 3 facts about the brain. One is that we can use our mind to change our brain to change our mind for the better.
Three facts about the brain:
As the brain changes, the mind changes. Certain parts of the brain are responsible for different emotions. Losing this can reduce our access to this emotion.
As the mind changes, the brain changes. This produces both temporary and lasting changes.
You can use your mind to change the brain to change the mind. This is self-directed neuroplasticity. Like operating on your own brain.
The best-selling author of Buddha’s Brain explains how we can use our minds to change our brains to change our minds for the better.
