Delay Dementia Today (Pt. 2)

Posted: Monday, April 26, 2010
At : 12:48 PM

Neuroscience research shows that the connections between our billions
of neurons – the synapses – are damaged in dementia patients.

Billions of neurons transfer information in our brains using electro-chemical signals.

In Dementia, information transfer at the synapses deteriorates,
the number of synapses declines and eventually our brain cells die.

This is also clearly seen in autopsies as a significant reduction in brain size.

Whole Mind Success has workshops to help stave off the onset of Dementia - using methods shown to work by neuroscientists.

Can Dementia be Prevented?

Posted: Friday, September 5, 2008
At : 4:45 PM

Cognitive research clearly indicates that deliberately taxing the brain and forcing seniors to work at complex rasks helps delay the onset of Dementia.

More recently, there are some who are finding evidence that Dementia can actually be prevented.

Some of the methods used are similar to techniques taught at Whole Mind Success seminars.

It thus appears likely that in addition to increasing your Creativity and Productivity, Whole Mind Success will help prevent the onset of Dementia - and allow us to lead a productive life at any age.

Whole Mind Success seminars have helped many companies increase their employees Creative and Innovative skills.

The methods taught at our interactive, hands-on workshops result in physiological changes - improvements in our Neural networks.

An added benefit is that, in the elderly, Whole Mind techniques help to delay, and possibly prevent, the onset of Dementia.
Whole Mind Success keeps the mind alert and active, enhancing creativity and Memory.

Is Time Magazine keeping pace with Whole Mind Success?

Posted: Monday, May 12, 2008
At : 12:24 PM

This week, Time Magazine published an article on the aging brain and associated memory loss in older adults.
The article touched on some of the research which was used in the development of Whole Mind Success.

Besides the two suggestions given in the article, many techniques taught in Whole Mind Success (WMS) workshops help to improve mental focus, alertness and memory.

These WMS techniques are proven to help people unlock their minds and become more productive and innovative.

Seniors, in particular, are shown how to exercise their brains and minimize stress, which can help delay the onset of cognitive impairment.

Aging Brain reflects Cultural differences 5th May

Aging Brains reflect Cultural differences - by Researchers in Illinois and Singapore

The aging brain reflects cultural differences in the way that it processes visual information. This study published in the May 2007 issue of the journal Cognitive, Affective & Behavioral Neuroscience. This paper and another published by the same group in 2006 are the first to demonstrate that culture can alter the brain’s perceptive mechanisms.

“These are the first studies to show that culture is sculpting the brain,” said University of Illinois's Denise Park, principal investigator on the study. “The effect is seen not so much in structural changes, but at the level of perception.”

The Americans showed more activity in brain regions associated with object processing than the East Asians, whose brains showed more activity in areas involved in processing background information.

What is Aging? - the Neuroscience of Ageing

What is Aging? - The Neuroscience of Ageing

Ageing is usually thought of as a process of steady deterioration in our physical and mental capabilities as our chronological age increases.

An old person could be someone who is 80 - or, as blogger lilmama thinks, it could be 30
As lilmama writes:

I will be 30 in Sept. and I feel like I'm losing my youth.
Can I still be considered cool?
Is 30 all downhill?
I want to be young and cool forever!


Common signs of aging are a slowing down of our physical capabilities and a recognizable deterioration in some of our mental faculties.
More frequent memory lapses, difficulty in focusing, taking longer to understand others … these are some of the symptoms of mental aging.

Brain aging is a complex phenomenon, and several theories have been presented to try and explain the process.
What we do know is that genetic and environmental factors play a large part in the ageing process.

Older Adults & Senior Citizens

Posted: Monday, April 7, 2008
At : 3:48 PM

Whole Mind Success methods have been found to help older adults.

The old concepts of merely having a fit body as one ages have been replaced
by a concern for the mental fitness of our aging population.

Long before the latest fads of brain gyms, etc., Whole Mind Success has been teaching techniques to Corporations - where their older executives also found significant cognitive improvements.

Our methods improve concentration and focus, help enhance memory, and appear to delay, or perhaps even prevent, the onset of dementia.

Contact us for more information.

Senior Citizens and Whole Mind Success

Whole Mind Success at Sunrise Assisted Living

Sixty professional caregivers for the elderly were excited by the proven benefits of Whole Mind Success methods in reversing mental aging.

Last Thursday, at Sunrise Assisted Living, Bala Kanayson of Whole Mind Success spoke to a group of medical and professional caregivers.

The program was a great success, with the enthusiastic participants asking Bala to continue past the allotted time.
Many stayed back to discuss the program and its benefits to the elderly.
Most of them requested Whole Mind Success seminars for themselves, and a fair number are working with us to schedule seminars for their companies and clients.

The Brain and Aging

Just like the rest of our body, as each of us ages, our brains change.
Brain cells die, and studies show that brain structures such as the hippocampus become smaller. Although these changes may not always affect memory, their effects vary widely with each individual.

Our working memory is a temporary storage for information and also the analysis of information, decision-making and information selection.
Our working memory’s primary location is in the hippocampus and in the frontal cortex.
Long term memory, however, is stored in various locations in the brain.

Our brain cells are dying daily, but current research shows that the process does not accelerate with age. Furthermore, the areas of the brain that lose cells are not clearly related to memory.

As we age, the way that the brain processes information slows down, reducing the storage rate of new information into our permanent memory.

What can we do to reduce and even stop this mental deterioration?We can begin using the proven methods of keeping our brains alert and helping to build new neuronal circuits – methods taught in every Whole Mind Success seminar.
