Enjoy the shows I think are The Shizz
Redesign My Brain is a documentary produced by the ABC here in Australia, our government funded national broadcaster. The show postulates if it is possible to retrain your brain to improve memory, thinking time, creativity and a host of other skills – basically improving your brain. The show is hosted by Todd Sampson,who is one third of the Gruen Transfer/ Planet/Nation/ OrWhateverThey’reCallingItThisWeek, a show about media and marketing. To me, it seemed strange the ABC chose Todd to host, but he makes a focused and game for anything conduit into the world of improving your brain.
I watched the first episode last night and it was fascinating. It seems with a little training each day you can improve your memory and attention exponentially. Todd puts himself to the test and it’s amazing seeing how he improved his brain’s capabilities in such a short time, even going so far as to competing in the World Memory Championships in London. He memorises the order of a deck of cards, peeps. A WHOLE DECK OF CARDS.
The website has links to the exercises Todd undertakes so you can test your own abilities. I tried it. Yeah. Um. Not so good. I’m going to blame it on the fact that I’m tired? Heh.
Anyhoo, check out Redesign My Brain. It will get you thinking about your own capabilities and maybe even encourage you to exercise your mind a bit 🙂
