Üsküdar University NPİSTANBUL Hospital Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı made three important recommendations for developing brain and memory. Do you know that it is possible to improve the brain and memory with some routines that will add to life in daily life? Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı said that doing regular exercise for 10 minutes a week increases the blood flow in the brain and ensures more regeneration of the brain. Recommending using the toothbrush with the other hand for a week, Tarlacı noted that when this order is reversed for a week, the other hemisphere of the brain will be activated. Suggesting to read the book regularly every day, Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı stated that books that will teach new concepts, new people and new information are preferred.
prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı stated that 10 minutes of exercise should be done every day.
Stating that the first of these suggestions is to "exercise regularly for 10 minutes every day", Tarlacı said, "It is necessary to exercise for 10 minutes every day in a week. 'What good can physical exercise do for the brain?' you might think. In general, we use exercise to increase physical health and well-being, but exercise also has a positive effect on brain health when done regularly.” said.
prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı emphasized that exercise increases cerebral blood flow.
Stating that both animal experiments and studies on humans show that exercise, that is, leg and body movement, increases cerebral blood flow, Tarlacı said, “There are stem cells especially in our temporal brain region, which is our memory and memory brain region. As exercise is done, the rate at which stem cells sprout and turn into new nerve cells increases. When regular exercise is done normally, the cerebral blood flow increases by 7% to 8%. Increased blood flow means more oxygen to the brain, more self-renewal of the brain and stronger memory. For this, if you do any simple exercise for 10 minutes regularly throughout the week, you will definitely see the benefits.” he said.
prof. Dr. Tarlacı advised brushing your teeth with your other hand.
Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı said that another suggestion is to try the movement with one hand regularly every day with the other hand. "Which hand you regularly brush your teeth with every day, try to do the opposite for a week," said Prof. Dr. Tarlacı said, “We are constantly in a trance state in our daily lives. We do all our work unconsciously and automatically. Think about yourself. When you wake up in the morning, you go to the bathroom to wash your face, brush your teeth, prepare your breakfast, get on your car/shuttle and go to work. Everything happens in the automatic system and there is not much to think about here. Everything is routine. So is tooth brushing. If you brush your teeth with your right hand every day, start brushing with your left hand for a week.” said.
Expressing that this movement will activate the other hemisphere of the brain, Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı said, “When you do it with your left hand, the right hemisphere of your brain will start to work due to the plastic structure of the brain. So when you reverse this pattern for a week, you will have activated the other hemisphere of your brain. So what can this do? First of all, it increases your awareness of the actions you take. Because going out of the automatic action because you are doing the opposite, triggers the emergence of your meta-awareness.” said.
Tarlacı said that it is beneficial to read books regularly every day.
Noting that reading a book every day is another suggestion, Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı said, “Sometimes it can be read as five pages, sometimes as a part of a book, depending on the need. I'm not talking about columns or books like novels. You need to read books that will trigger your learning process and teach you new concepts, new words, new people, new relationships, and new problem solving styles. You can read other books of course, but it's always new things that will trigger your brain, make your brain sparkle, keep your brain on fire and on fire. Things that are repetitive, that won't force you, don't leave a lot of marks on your brain." said.
Expressing that "I cannot understand this book, I cannot comprehend this book", Neurology Specialist Prof. Dr. Sultan Tarlacı concluded his words as follows: “You somehow grasp a point, you can learn new words and concepts as you read. You can learn new people in fields such as art and philosophy. You can start researching other concepts through new people and progress as a chain. The beginning of this is to read books that will force you or increase your stimulation and set a goal for it. It's up to you to decide how much to read each day, depending on your time and desire.”
