The Neocortex (The Thinking and Learning Brain)
Your neocortex is the executive centre of your CONSCIOUS MIND it’s the part of your brain that locks you into 3-dimensional reality.
The forebrain or frontal lobe which makes up 40% of your entire brain is what separates us from all other living species (gibbons and chimpanzees have roughly 16%, dogs 7% cats 4%).
Think of the frontal lobe as the CEO or symphony leader of the brain. It is the decision maker, the moderator of our emotional reactions and creator of new possibilities.
Every time we learn something, we forge synaptic connections and research into neuroscience proves that just one hour of focused concentration on one concept or idea, literally doubles the number of connections in your brain, so you learn faster.
