Brain-changing exercises of Wendy Suzuki (VIDEO)
RANEPA Institute of Business Studies (IBS) prepared 4 clips about interviews with Wendy Suzuki, famous American neurobiologist, Ph.D., Professor, Head of Laboratory at New York University.
In October, Wendy Suzuki gave an exclusive Skype interview for undergraduates of RANEPA IBS, in which she discussed with the listeners her book “Curious Girl Who Fell in Love with Her Brain”. Sergei Myasoedov, Provost, Director of RANEPA IBS, acted as the interview moderator. A month earlier, 14 September, Wendy Suzuki also made her first speech in Russia, addressing the students of the Presidential Academy at “Newborn Generation” joint conference of RANEPA and Sberbank.
1. Interview with Wendy Suzuki. Exercises for the brain.
Wendy Suzuki talks about how she decided to transfer the studies of the brain into the area of special exercises for the brain. These exercises will help to protect the humans from major diseases associated with impaired function of the brain, which today are turning to be epidemic throughout the world due to the increased life expectancy and the corresponding increase in the risk of the disease. The scientist claims that the exercises work equally well for all ages and strengthen the brain.
2. Interview with Wendy Suzuki. How to get rid of bad habits.
The American neurobiologist argues that the problem of our desire for harmful things is that they cause addiction and dependency, but exercises have the same feature. That is why Wendy Suzuki recommends to be aware of this threat and try to get used to only positive and useful things.
3. Interview with Wendy Suzuki. About genes, the psychology of perception of the world and milk cocktails.
Is our psychological perception of the world rooted in the genes? Can deviations be detected based on the study of genetics before they would show themselves clinically? Partially yes, but for the most part, you can work with deviations, for example, using hypnotherapy, – Wendy Suzuki answers. The expert tells how to interact with our dependencies through the example of mindsets research, during which people were treated to milkshakes.
4. Interview with Wendy Suzuki. The best time for workouts.
Immediately after exercise people feel the improvement in the work of the brain, their concentration improves, they manage to focus better, and their mood is raised. In turn, if a person is a student willing to strengthen his/her long-term memory, he/she has to take training four hours after classes at school. In this video, Wendy Suzuki explains if there is a difference in doing the exercises in the morning or in the evening.
About Wendy Suzuki
Wendy Suzuki became known throughout the world thanks to her book “Curious Girl Who Fell in Love with Her Brain: How the Knowledge of Neurobiology Helps to Become More Attractive, Happier and A Better Person”. Based on her deep knowledge about the brain, she has developed unique techniques of brain training – complexes of exercises which quickly restore energy, mood and thinking activity.
The main scientific interest of Dr. Suzuki is the brain plasticity. The Professor is best known for her extensive work on the study of the areas of the brain responsible for a person’s ability to generate and store new long-term memories. The scientist’s recent studies were focused on understanding how aerobic exercise can be used to improve learning, memory and higher cognitive abilities in humans.
