Please click on this link above on youtube to a little girl that will blow your mind with her abilities.

It really is thought provoking at how much we as humans are capable of if we are not limited. No one ever told Bella it was too hard for her to read at four years old. Or that it impossible to speak  additional languages.

We only limit ourselves to what we believe to be true. If you think its not possible then you are probably right. Humans are their own self fulfilling prophecy.

My greatest wish for YOU and for me as well that I never limit my beliefs in so that it dampens that “can do” spirit so that all of our deepest and most heartfelt dreams come true!

“I always wanted to be a _________.” “I always wanted to do ________.”

Scary Thought: Scientists build an ’off switch’ for the brain

Scientists have developed an “off-switch” for the brain to effectively shut down neural activity using light pulses.

In 2005, Stanford scientist Karl Deisseroth discovered how to switch individual brain cells on and off by using light in a technique he dubbed ’optogenetics’.

Research teams around the world have since used this technique to study brain cells, heart cells, stem cells and others regulated by electrical signals.

However, light-sensitive proteins were efficient at switching cells on but proved less effective at turning them off.

Now, after almost a decade of research, scientists have been able to shut down the neurons as well as activate them.

Mr Deisseroth’s team has now re-engineered its light-sensitive proteins to switch cells much more adequately than before. His findings are presented in the journal Science.

Thomas Insel, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, which funded the study, said this improved “off” switch will help researchers to better understand the brain circuits involved in behavior, thinking and emotion.
