The human brain. What an incredible machine the human brain is. While most people walk around everyday not thinking about their own, the human brain is constantly working, even when you’re sleeping. It is so incredibly complex that science has only unlocked a small portion of its secrets and while we understand much more now than we ever have about the human brain, how it processes information, how it configures itself and solves complex problems, each year a new study seems to shed light on something we thought we knew, or didn’t fully understand about the human brain.
The human brain control us, or is it the other way around?
It’s easy to think that our brains control us, that we are at the mercy of its function, that if something were to go wrong, if some part of our brain malfunctioned, then we wouldn’t have the same quality or level of life that we currently enjoy. Of course, for many people who have suffered brain injuries, aneurisms, strokes, viruses, or other injuries to the brain, they are well aware that this is true.
Yet the power of the human brain is so vast that even with complications or obstacles that are thrown in its path, it works continuously to ‘rewire’ itself, to alter the neurotic pathways in the hope of finding a way around, or through, the problems.
Stress and other factors on the human brain
Of course, there are other factors that can affect the human brain. Drugs and alcohol can do serious damage to the brain structure by altering chemical composition or, in some cases, even the neural network itself. Heroin addicts require methadone for the remainder of their life because the drug physically alters the neural pathways and in order to function relies on a consistent refreshment of its replacement.
Nicotine is another drug that directly affects the human brain, which is one of the reasons that so many people struggle desperately to quit smoking. While these addictions cause a chain reaction within the human brain, altering it in some measurable way, there are other factors that can affect the brain and therefore the person and the life they live.
Stress is one of those factors. Stress on the human emotions causes the brain to produce excessive amounts of chemicals, such as dopamine or serotonin, depending on the circumstances. The brain requires a balance of chemicals in order to function properly and healthy. When that balance is disturbed, the individual may experiences a wide range of issues, from depression to memory problems, to an inability to focus, just to name a few.
The world is a pressure-cooker
The modern world puts people under an enormous amount of pressure on a regular basis. It’s no secret that the pharmaceutical industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry in large part due to its research and development of anti-anxiety and anti-depression medications. Performance is often the first victim of this newfound pressure and it can manifest itself in a variety of ways, and in a host of different environments.
The human brain attempts to circumvent this pressure that the person is feeling, trying to create solutions or different pathways to help subdue the pressure and stressors in the mind so that the person can function during their daily life, and in some case –far more often recently- this leads the brain to alter its pathways and processes.
Getting back into rhythm is possible, and necessary
While the human brain will continue to work in mysterious ways, we understand that its coping mechanisms are about survival and not about productivity in the workplace, being an effective leader, a loving spouse, or feeling inspired to tackle the great American novel. The brain will do what is asked of it consciously and then take care of what it needs to do subconsciously to protect the individual.
