In a previous video, we have been talking about Neuroplasticity and why it is so important to consider Neuroplasticity when we are learning as adults... and how Neuroplasticity can and should be considered when it comes to changing our habits because so many of our day to day behaviours are habits, are habitual they are really embedded and when we are learning new information as adults, these habits are often getting in the way of getting these new habits and these new ways of being and these new learnings to really stick. So I wanted to just expand on Neuroplasticity a little bit and to explain a bit more why it's so important to think about this, when it comes to learning as adults, in adulthood. When we are learning new information, the brain cells, the neurons are communicating to each other. The brain acts as a dense network of fiber pathways. From all the research that has been done to date, we reckon that there's just over 80 billion neurons. Learning new information and memory formation, is made by the strengthening and weakening of the connections among the brain cells, among the neurons. Researchers find that when two neurons frequently interact, that they form a bond, that allows them to transmit information more easily and accurately between each other, and this leads to more complete memories and easier recall. And the opposite is also true, if these neurons are not interacting with each other then the memories don't stick and therefore we can't recall the information. There's a number of ingredients that are necessary, a number of things for us to think about, as adults learners, to enable these neurons to fire and communicate frequently so that the memories embed and that we recall that information. And as we go through more videos, I'm going to talk more about the particular techniques that we need to think about. Just on a very high level, what we need to think about is, how, when we go to a workshop, when we go to a learning program, or listen to a podcast or read a book, there is information that we want to recall and go and use in life and in work, you need to think about how am I going to take this information and repeat this information. How am I going to find opportunities to try this information, to try out utilising this information. Because if we don't repeat the information, then the strengthening between those neurons does not occur. and that's why we forget about it so easily and six months later, after going to a workshop, we've taken all these notes and six months later we find that information and we think, ah, forgot about that. 'That would have been really useful, maybe I could have changed the way I was doing things along time ago.' But because we haven't created that repetition at the time, for the next few days, few weeks, few months after the learning event, that's why it hasn't embedded. So think more about your Neuroplasticity, in your brain, how can you get all those fiber pathways interacting, how can you take that information and repeat that information in different types of formats, and actually put it into practice so that it embeds long-term. If you'd like to learn more about this, we have published a series of books called the Maximising Brain Potential series. The first book is called Our Learning Brain and that talks a lot more about Neuroplasticity and Habit Change For any of you that have not met me, I'm Celine Mullins, from Adaptas Training. You can get the book on on Amazon or on our website,
