Acetylcholine Neurotransmitters and their role in Cognitive Learning
We are always looking for new methods to improve human memory and the ability to learn.
Human learning can be boosted through the use of hypnosis.
What do we mean by that?
Research shows that Clinical Hypnosis is an excellent way to boost sequence learning, which is learning in the order in which events and cues are used in order to develop lasting memories.
Memory and learning are related to multiple cognitive systems in the brain.
Interestingly, studies have shown that the learning rate in hypnosis was higher than the learning rate in the alert state.
When we intentionally disrupt the alert state, Hypnosis boosts sequential learning. There can be so much "noise" in our heads, and in our environments, that we can benefit from being De-Hypnotized from our daily trance, or the aforementioned "alert-state". When we reprogram a familiar trigger, we can benefit tremendously from a better platform for learning.
Acetylcholine plays a key role in memory, attention, and learning.
Acetylcholine is essential to both the central nervous system and the olfactory system. It enables the central nervous system to maintain its cognitive functions (including learning and thought processes). As a neurotransmitter, it allows neurons to communicate with one another. The term "senior moments" refers to symptoms of insufficient acetylcholine.
In addition, Alzheimer's patients have significantly lower levels of acetylcholine.
However, when your acetylcholine levels are low, these memory problems can occur at any age, as 70 to 90 percent of the population has low levels of neurotransmitters.
Clinical Hypnosis can also help boost learning and memory, by assisting with lifestyle changes that can significantly help with neurotransmitter levels. With the help of Hypnosis, these levels can also be raised as we help you with reducing stress, improve your diet, reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake, as well as letting go of any unhealthy recreational drug use.
So the takeaway is that by raising your acetylcholine levels, memory and learning levels can be better maintained by making the recommended lifestyle changes. This need not be done alone, as Clinical Hypnosis can be an effective tool to help the Mind-Body Connection run at peak levels!
