by on May.13, 2010, under Information Lifestyles

brain-of-humanBaltimore, The human brain is very complex and is the source of all feelings, behaviors, experiences, and the warehouse of memory and consciousness. But is it true that humans only use 10 percent of his brain?

The brain is very mysterious, and an additional one other mystery is the assumption that humans only use 10 percent of his brain. And if everyone could use another 90 percent of the brain, maybe everyone can be a scientist and has the power telecinetic.

“Though an interesting idea,” 10 percent myth “is absolutely untrue, and very amusing,” said Barry Gordon, a neurologist at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine in Baltimore, as reported from Scientific of American.

According to Gordon, a myth derived from the concepts of people about his own brain. This group saw itself as a lack of evidence that gray matter (cortex of the brain that contains nerve cell bodies) is not maximally utilized.

This is a false assumption. It may be true, at certain moments in one's life, such as when to rest and relax only use only 10 percent of the brain. But this does not apply to other conditions.

“It turned out that we use almost every part of the brain, and most of the brain is active almost all the time. The brain represents three percent of body weight, and require 20 percent of the energy body,” added Gordon.

The average weight of the human brain about three pounds (1.3 kg) and consists of the cerebrum, cerebellum and brain stem.

by on May.04, 2010, under Information Lifestyles

hearts-lineKnowing the changes in heart rate is very important to know heart problems early. Not only by using special equipment, checking the heart rate can also be done without using tools.

Heart rate is the number of heartbeats per unit of time, usually expressed in beats per minute (beats per minute or bpm).

1. Use your fingers to find the pulse
Use two fingers or three fingers, namely the index finger, middle finger and ring finger to find your pulse. But do not use your thumb because your thumb has a pulse itself.

Inspection can be done on the wrist (radial pulse) and in the neck (carotid pulse).

At the wrist, use three finger pads of index, middle and ring fingers. The ideal place is below the wrist crease at the base of the thumb. Press lightly until you find the pulse (the blood pulsing beneath the fingers). If necessary, move the fingers until you find the most taut pulse.

In the neck just use two fingers, index and middle fingers. The ideal spot is about one inch to the side of the center of the throat, right where the neck and jaw meet.

2. Check and record level, strength and rhythm
Use a clock or watch in the hands of another. Calculate and record how many pulses that occurred within 10 seconds.
