Brain gland activation may hold key to using more of our brain

Studies have shown that all individuals have a certain amount of dormant or underdeveloped brain areas. (Every human brain ever mapped scientifically has shown at least some inactive cells and neurons). This area of neuroscience, especially concerning little known brain glands, may hold the answer as to why we only use such a small percentage of our brains.

We explore the intriguing phenomenon that is brain gland activation in our new release bestseller GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ. An excerpt from this book follows…

Important and often dormant, semi-dormant or underutilized brain glands include fairly well known ones like the pineal gland. This powerful gland, which has been known about since ancient times, is said to be well developed in most persons of high intellect and produces the serotonin-derived hormone melatonin.

Less reported glands and interrelated areas of the brain include the pituitary (nicknamed the body’s master gland), which controls most other hormone-secreting glands, the thalamus (necessary for planning and decision-making), the amygdala, which can bypass thought and instantly react, the hippocampus (one of the only areas of the brain where neurogenesis or the birthing of new neurons can occur) and the hypothalamus (crucial for memory and learning).

In our international thriller series The Orphan Trilogy, we show how all these parts of the brain can be stimulated into activity in a variety of ways, including magnetism.

As we wrote in book two in the trilogy: “Rare earth magnets were embedded inside each helmet for the purpose of activating certain brain glands. Glands that were dormant in the average person.”

Neuromagnetic helmets and similar brain stimulation technologies are not just confined to the realms of fiction.

Transcranial direct current stimulation, or TDCS, is one type of brain stimulation technique used in the real world. It’s carried out by applying a helmet or cap to the individual’s head. TDCS targets specific parts of the brain with low voltage electrical currents. This allows for the alteration of electrical states of neurons in targeted areas of the brain.

TDCS is in its infancy, but early studies have shown it enhances motor skills, memory recall and concentration. As a result, the US military now employs TDCS to assist fighter pilots, snipers and other personnel.

In a BBC news article dated July 22, 2014, TDCS is explored in relation to making sleep-learning possible. “In the near future, technology may offer further ways of upgrading the brain’s sleep cycles. Memory consolidation is thought to occur during specific, slow, oscillations of electrical activity, so the idea here is to subtly encourage those brain waves without waking the subject.

“Jan Born, at the University of Tubingen,” the article continues, “has been at the forefront of these experiments. In 2004, he found that he could help amplify those signals using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), which passes a small electric current across the skull, successfully improving his subjects’ performance on a verbal memory test.”

In 2013, several TDCS inventions became commercially available to the public for the first time.

Leading UK newspaper The Guardian ran an article on February 5, 2014 under the heading Can an electronic headset make you a better video gamer? The article mentions a specific device that “uses the principles of tDCS – transcranial direct current stimulation – sending a small current of between 0.8 and 2.0mA through the prefrontal cortex through electrodes positioned on your forehead.”

Although the technology is still being refined, many video gamers all over the world are reporting increased mental concentration and better performance. This bodes well for other types of mental exercises – like academic study for example – especially as the TDCS devices become more honed.

Transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS, is a similar non-invasive brain enhancement technology except it uses magnets instead of electricity. TMS’s magnetic fields are capable of altering neurons in targeted areas of the brain.

Neuromagnetic helmets and similar devices have been nicknamed ‘zap caps’ and preliminary studies show they have the potential to improve brain function in numerous ways.

Another article that ran in The Guardian nicely summarized a recent scientific study that proves TMS’s positive influences on the brain. The August 2014 article states that “memory can be boosted by using a magnetic field to stimulate part of the brain, a study has shown. The effect lasts at least 24 hours after the stimulation is given, improving the ability of volunteers to remember words linked to photos of faces.”

The Guardian article quotes Dr Joel Voss, from Northwestern University, in Chicago, as saying: “We show for the first time that you can specifically change memory functions of the brain in adults without surgery or drugs, which have not proven effective. This non-invasive stimulation improves the ability to learn new things.”

TMS technologies stimulate the brain.

The latest studies also show that TMS can specifically stimulate the hippocampus, which oversees and directs the entire brain including crucial glands. Formerly it was believed the hippocampus was too deeply embedded in the brain to be stimulated by TMS. However, scientists have recently discovered the hippocampus can be stimulated indirectly via connected brain structures within the reach of TMS’s magnetic fields.

Another potential method of increasing activity in specific brain glands like the pituitary is by ingesting an unusual substance called Ormus. (See Chapter 11 for more on Ormus).
