Key quotes and takeaways from the show:

We learn most effectively and efficiently by CREATING and STRENGTHENING neural pathways.

Memories are strengthened every time they are recalled. Testing is important for learning.

Memories can be unreliable and can change over time. This is beneficial for changing negative memories (trauma, PTSD, etc.).

We can pass on trauma to our children and grandchildren (The Body Keeps the Score).

Don’t ask someone, “what’s wrong with you?” Ask them, “what happened to you?”

“All you have is a series of eternal ‘nows’.”

The best way to discover something is to discover how not to do it.

It’s never too late to learn or make new neural connections.

Understand what type of learner you are.

Sleep is imperative for brain health, learning and memory recall. Don’t compromise sleep for additional learning hours. “Cramming” is a bad idea!

Visualisation works.

Create cognitive hooks to improve your learning. “Add extra layers to strengthen that connection” (visual, auditory, emotional, environment, etc.).

Learning languages or instruments when you are young transfers into the development of other skills.

It’s never too late to learn. “Our brain is as healthy as we keep it.”

“New neurons are being created in the hippocampus-where memory happiness-right up until the moment of your death.”

“We are like islands in the sea, separate on the surface but connected in the deep.” – William James.

“We are most creative when we are relaxed and when we let go.”

Pain occurs in the brain. If you distract the brain enough, you can avoid the sensation of pain.

It’s never too late to change or start something new.

Never give up!

Question of the day:

“How do we learn most effectively and efficiently?”
