Seminars and lectures: intellectual antieydzh
Doors American universities and training centers are open not only to students. Every morning, both at work here flock elderly people – to hear a lecture on economics, geography, or visit the business seminar. The knowledge gained is rarely applied in practice, but are an excellent antieydzh programs: active brain cells to maintain clarity of mind, reduces the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
Various trainings and seminars are becoming increasingly popular in our country. In fact, everything that is not learned in school – but it is of interest as an adult – can dopoluchit after school. Someone seeking to improve professional skills and attends seminars for lawyers and others want to expand the frontiers of consciousness, recording lectures on Zen Buddhism. In addition to practical knowledge, course participant returns partially lost childhood brain capacity – always something to learn. “It falls to childhood” in a good way. And for the brain are equally useful and foreign language courses and seminars for lawyers, and the decision of logarithms, and even crossword puzzles: the intellectual challenge – a kind of aerobics for the brain.
The need for intellectual cultivation has substantiated the inventor of the “pyramid of human needs,” Abraham Maslow. This suggests that once a person meets the basic essential needs, it sends energy to the educational needs and self-realization. Does this theory fit in with the conventional wisdom is that with age the ability to brilliant discoveries, and even absorption of information is greatly reduced? Neuropsychologists believe that opportunities adult brain, though not unlimited (as a child), but very plastic: a huge number of “sleeping” neurons instantly activated and forms functional connections necessary for learning new information (from people able to learn a new asana or learn play chess). But if the brain is loaded, there is no sense to support and intelligence.
It would seem that, in the era of Internet accessibility makes no sense to go to business seminars – see the house, introduced at work. However, public lectures often are “gurus” have valuable practical experience. Or just a good speaker, which “pleasure to” listen to whatever the theme. Besides seminars attended by people with similar interests – it is likely to expand social circle, or even find a new business partner. Spur interest and form of employment – a mix of education and entertainment – yawn at business seminars is not necessary.
