As part of IoT(Internet of Things) Network Hub monthly meetings, Miss Lizette Berry, a Neuroscientist and Brain Coach has brought to light some key potentials of the brain and how individuals can derive total benefits from it. She said that by giving prominence to the most important tasks-the brain can be rewired. From her presentation, she indicated that life is 90% mental and one’s inability to control their brain may end such individuals up in a place of indecisiveness. The event, held at the Ghana India Kofi Annan Centre for Excellence (AITI KACE) brought together technology enthusiasts, persons in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and Maths) fields and some young robotics trainees.
THE POWER OF THE BRAIN
Miss Berry touched on the different units of the brain and the significant role each played in aiding the human body to be functional. Speaking on the main highlight of her message, she mentioned that one of the dominant ways of controlling one’s thought is getting to understand how the brain functions through the mind’s eye. This, she indicated can be activated through one’s thought pattern. In her own words, she said “The only way to control your thoughts is to see your brain with your “brain’s eyes” ”
THE BRAIN’S MAKE-UP AND FUNCTION
Discussing the numerous functions of the brain through a PowerPoint presentation, the sophisticated structure was simplified to understand the audience. Miss Berry pointed out that the brain is a complicated organ regulating the body’s thoughts, memory, emotion, touch, motor skills, vision, breathing, temperature, and hunger. She mentioned that; the central nervous system is also made up of the brain and the spinal cord that flows from it.
THE EVOLVING WORLD
Joshua Opoku Agyemang President of the IoT Network Hub and Ghana STEM Network saw the imminent need for the participants to understand this presentation as the brain formed an important part in critical thinking and creatively solving problems which are also rated as some of the most important skills needed in the world today.
Bringing her presentation to a close she said: “the brain like any other resource can be mined to derive the most benefit but it is up to you to understand the process to enjoy all the benefits it has to offer”.
The IoT Hub is a technology community, dedicated to tinkering and exploiting open source technologies to solve problems locally and within the Continent.
