Neurosculpting Note of the Day: The VLPFC(ventro lateral perfrontal cortex) is our braking system, inhibiting distracting stimulus, behavior, muscles, and emotional response. When our brain is taxed and tired, the VLPFC is the first to get exhausted, making it even harder for us to inhibit. In a recent study neuroscientists gave one group of dieters a 2-digit number to remember, and the next group of dieters a 7-digit number to remember. Afterwards, each group was allowed to pick a snack: a healthy fruit or chocolate cake. Those who memorized the 2-digit number picked the healthy snack and overrode their cravings while those who memorized the 7-digit number gave in to their cravings and chose the cake. When we are stressed, overworked, stuck in our analytical minds, and undernourished we lose our ability to inhibit those behaviors and choices we may know are bad for us. How can you make sure your brain gets the nourishment it needs to keep you making healthy choices?
