We assume the brain is stationary but it is not. Amazing video from researchers @stanford @stanford.med NICHD and Stevens Institute of Technology funded by @nihgov showing breathing-induced and blood-flow related movements of the brain stem, thalamus and cortex using amplified NMR (aMRI; pulse-based imaging).
Breathing can be trained just like any other part of the body. There’s a saying that I love, “if you can control your breathing, you can control your brain”. This is absolutely true, there are so many variations on breathing exercises such as the Wim Hof Method (@iceman_hof ), Box Breathing, meditative yoga style breathing and so on. It’s hugely important that we train our breathing just like any other part of our body.
