Smartz Pleeze?

I think I know the answer, but is there actually any way to increase intelligence? I know I'm not getting a cerebral RAM-boost implant anytime soon, and while I've never looked deeply into them I presume so-called "smart drugs" have always been a bust? So I'm probably down to study, reading, exercise, keeping the oxygen flowing; still someone might have heard of something interesting out there?

Get proper rest, eat food high in omega 3 fatty acids, and it would seem from studies with Asian monks, singing-chanting which increases blood flow to the extremities while processing music stimulates the brain. Taking on non familiar challenges in music and languages to encourage new brain development. But then what does an old fart like me know. Cheers Fritz

Thanks Fritz! Omega_3s you say? I take vitamins when I remember, sigh, I'll look further. And no one needs to hear me sing, like ever.

Keeping healthy and rested are necessary to maximize your natural IQ, but the real gains can be found in enhancing your effective (instrumental) IQ.

[Fritz]This certainly underscores the need for sleep to be 'Smartz'

Russell Foster: Why do we sleep?


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWULB9Aoopc

Published on Aug 14, 2013 by TEDtalksDirector

Russell Foster is a circadian neuroscientist: He studies the sleep cycles of the brain. And he asks: What do we know about sleep? Not a lot, it turns out, for something we do with one-third of our lives. In this talk, Foster shares three popular theories about why we sleep, busts some myths about how much sleep we need at different ages — and hints at some bold new uses of sleep as a predictor of mental health.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world’s leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes (or less). Look for talks on Technology, Entertainment and Design — plus science, business, global issues, the arts and much more.
