How the Brain Works Part 3 (UCLA)

How the Brain Works
These brief videos provide an introductory appreciation of how we learn skills and information, move, think, feel, speak and remember. They are brought to you by the UCLA Brain Research Institute and by Bruce H. Dobkin, MD, who directs the neurorehabilitation program in the Department of Neurology at UCLA. The videos especially aim to reach out to students in grade school to stir their interest, and to people with disabilities in walking, using an affected upper extremity, and loss of memory from neurological diseases such as stroke, brain trauma, tumors, multiple sclerosis, cerebral palsy, Parkinsons, and Alzheimers disease.

Video 1:
General organization of a real human brain.

Video 2:
The pathology of brain injuries and diseases. Rat versus human brain complexity. How do we reach for a ball? How do we walk?

Video 3:
How does practice enable us to learn and retain skills and information?

Video 4:
How can we drive the nervous system to adapt in ways that help restore lost skills after injury from disease? Can we reorganize the brains connections?

For the first time in history, researchers at MIT have successfully recorded a 3-D movie of an entire neural network moving throughout a living animal! This is a huge step forward in our understanding of how the brain works and will help scientists discover how our neural networks generate our behaviors. In the future, this technology might even be able to cure brain disorders!

How Optical Illusions Trick Your Brain

Things are not at all as they seem... What are the different types of optical illusions and why are our eyes tricking us?

How Your Eyes Trick Your Mind

Visual, or optical, illusions show us that our minds tend to make assumptions about the world - and what you think you see is often not the truth. Throughout history, curious minds have questioned why our eyes are so easily fooled by these simple drawings. Illusions, we have found, can reveal everything from how we process time and space to our experience of consciousness. Scroll down our interactive guide to find out why.

What Are Optical Illusions? - Definition & Types

In this lesson, we will explore the different types of optical illusions and discuss how they play tricks on our perception. Then you can test your knowledge with a fun quiz.

How Do Optical Illusions Work?

These are two identical, straight lines. Kind of boring, right? But what happens when you change what's going on around them? All of a sudden, the lines look like they've changed size in relation to each other; they could shrink and grow; they might change to different shades; they may stretch and compress; and they could bend, buckle, or even change directions. But even though it would seem like the lines themselves are changing, the only thing that's actually bending or buckling is your mind -- the truly mesmerizing part of optical illusions.

08:48 - This is a mesmerizing trivia quiz that will make you look up from the screen and turn your eyes to the sky. It's a great chance to boost your imagination and try to see the whole picture of what's going on in our solar system.

Your Brain at Work

Google Tech Talk
November 12, 2009


Presented by David Rock.

In his new book Your Brain at Work, coach David Rock depicts the story of two people over one day at the office, and what's happening in their brains that makes it so hard to focus and be productive. Not only does he explain why things go wrong, but how you can train your brain to improve thinking and performance at work. Based on interviews with 30 neuroscientists, he's developed strategies to help you work smart all day.

Learn how to:
· Maximize your mental energy by understanding your brain's limits
· Overcome distractions
· Improve your focus through understanding the nature of attention
· Reduce stress levels with brain-based techniques
· Improve how you collaborate by understanding the social needs of the brain

You can learn to be more productive, less stressed and stay sane by understanding your brain.

David Rock is a thought leader for the brain-based approach to coaching. David coined the term 'NeuroLeadership' and co-founded the NeuroLeadership Institute, Journal and Summit. He is also the founder and CEO of Results Coaching Systems, which helps Fortune 500 clients worldwide improve thinking and performance. He has authored four books, most recently 'Your Brain at Work'. He is on the advisory board and faculty of international business school CIMBA, and a guest lecturer at Oxford University. He consults organizations including Ericsson, Publicis, NASA, Accenture, EDS and the US Federal Reserve. He lives between New York City and Sydney, Australia.
