Train Your Brain

††††††††††† There is new brain research being published every week that demonstrates how much influence we

have over the health and development of our own brains. Dr. Oz says that if you do any new thing every

day for a month, it will change your brain. A recent study published in the journal Brain showed that even

violent psychopaths can learn empathy toward their victims. Unlike earlier studies that used questionnaires

to test subjects (who can lie to look good for the researchers), this study used MRIís to show that areas of

the brain that were dormant (and associated with empathy in normal subjects) became activated in the

brains of psychopaths after they were taught to understand another personís perspective. Your brain is

ready to be trained to do things you never thought it could do.
