How does our brain develop during childhood?

A: When we''re infants, we have all of this brain material compacted in a small space. Like tree branches, they overlap. That garbled anatomy makes it difficult to do some things, such as making decisions, because the jumbled structures crossing one another make it nearly impossible for our brains to focus on one thing. As we get older-3, 4, and 5 years old-our brain starts deciding which branch points get developed and which sort of fall off. So the more we use certain parts of our brain as toddlers, the more we develop those kinds of neurons, while the opposite holds true for those neurons we don''t use. The way we train our brains at an early age actually has an effect on which of those neuron systems will become good and strong and which won''t. In autistic children, the current best...


What happens if your body doesn''t produce serotonin?

A: candy and sweets, which are simple carbohydrates, have the greatest impact, but the effect will only last 1 - 2 hours. Complex carbohydrates (rice, potato, pasta) may increase serotonin levels, but not to the same extent because the protein content of these foods might actually inhibit serotonin production. carbohydrates trigger the release of insulin into the blood stream, which clears all the amino acids from the blood, except tryptophan. When competitors are out of the way, the tryptophan floods the brain, where it''s converted to serotonin. Whole-grain breads, crackers, pasta, rice, cereal, and fruit all have the potential to increase your serotonin level. The dietary supplement 5-HTP (5-hydroxy-L-tryptophan) is promoted as a treatment for insomnia, depression, migraine, obesity and...


Base curve and image size

A: Hi, The image size is more a function or your prescription rather than the base curve.  You can change base curves and examine formulas  all you want; but, if there is a sizable difference between the two eye prescription wise, there will always be a size differential between the left & right eye.  The best way to correct the image size is to move the lens as close to the eye as possible which is done with contact lenses.  The other option available currently is lasik surgery. Hope this helps, Dr. Wojciak...


my wife accidentally took a 10 mg pill called focalin. how long will it stay in her system?

A: I don''t know and as a policy Health Central does not provide information on the duration a drug stays in a person''s system for fear of enabling drug abusers. You''re probably aware that Focalin used in attention deficit disorder that drug abusers sometimes used to create states of euphoria.

Sensitivity to Noise

How can I break out of the mannerism of individual a procrastinator?
