Very few people even know it exists but it seems that Lethologica is a common disorder that 9 out of 10 people suffer with. Lethologica is termed as a psychological disorder that sporadically hinders a person’s ability to clearly articulate their thoughts and they temporarily forget names in conversations, words and phrases.
Money might not buy you happiness, but it seems that currency trading could improve your wellbeing. A recent medical study has pointed to evidence that mentally engaging activities such as forex trading are forms of mental exercise that can effectively help keep the mind sharper for longer.

The extensive Bronx Aging Study, conducted by researchers at the New England Journal of Medicine, revealed that regular participation in “cognitive leisure activities” can offer protection against the onset of Alzheimer’s disease and slowing down the progression of dementia later in life. These activities are those requiring mental effort, for example reading, completing crosswords and playing musical instruments. This is promising news for those looking to keep their mental faculties sharp, and it may come as a surprise to learn that it’s also set to be good news for many a CFD broker.
The link between how we hear and cognitive ability has been a study in flux; from time to time the importance is highlighted and then again played down. It’s not as if it’s not well known that our ability to hear does play an role in the assessment of cognitive ability but it hasn’t been settled just how important that role is. The biggest surprise or perhaps tragedy of this push and pull is that research giants’ published papers have yet to be integrated into the collective knowledge and yet there has been research dating back thirty years already. It’s clear that when we improve hearing we improve the potential for cognitive ability while age does contribute as a factor, but is it just potential or is the link more concrete?
Hoarding is known to be a compulsive disorder which many people suffer from. The homes of hoarders are generally cluttered with whatever particular product they don’t have the heart to part with, even down to dirty pizza boxes piled up to the ceilings. Some hoard crystal, other’s just prefer to hold onto their take-out boxes of already eaten breakfast lunch and dinner; it becomes a vicious cycle for hoarders because they don’t want to live in unhygienic conditions, but they don’t know how to resolve what is largely considered an addiction.
When it comes to finding the perfect property, there is no single answer that magically points us all in the same direction because our ideas of what constitutes perfect evolve and change in our lives; not to mention that one man may see perfection and another may see a nightmare. Finding information on the perfect property on the internet is purely practical but perhaps we should look at those issues beneath the surface in order to address this topic. Psychology is not a topic most would relate to finding a house and this is a shame because everything we do as human beings comes down to how our minds work. For some of us the thought of shared ownership mortgages will be a practical consideration while other may be more inclined to think of it as exciting; the difference in motivations are subtle sometimes but the end result is massive in the long term. Let’s look at some interesting relocation ideas playing into perfect property in ways that may surprise you.
As far as the desire to improve memory, there have been more than a few studies and experiments looking for the secret to broadening the mind. A study in 2002 found a surprising result from the act of chewing gum that improved their short and long-term recall facilities. Now a new study claims to bust this myth and found that not only does chewing gum do nothing to improve short term memory, but it actually worsens it. So where do we find the truth in all these claims; science tends to go back and forth proving then disproving until finally the truth in the centre is found. While we should all learn to listen critically to what science studies show, it’s usually inaccessible to the common man so we’ll try to break down the facts and plainly dissect this subject.
Many people won’t be aware of the fact that the 2nd of April was World Autism Awareness Day, which naturally falls within world autism awareness month. The disorder affects one in one hundred people but there are few people aware of exactly what it is all about.
Autism can be a very isolating condition and it is only through awareness that people are able to empathise and treat those with the disorder more pleasantly. It is currently the fasted growing disorder on earth. Autism awareness is particularly important as it is the disorder is incurable. This means that autistic kids as well as adults will at times experience despair and a sense of hopelessness. If people do not understand this it can often exacerbate the problem. Regulatory affairs are needed in the treatment of autism but positive social treatment is also one of the most comforting approaches.
In a recent study conducted by the University of Gothenburg it was concluded that listening to music helps improve health. One can be forgiven for thinking that this is quite a sweeping statement and that there have been countless studies on the effects of music, from whether music helps you learn and concentrate to the type of music that helps you sleep, but it’s always been hard to determine for certain if music can be the direct cause of health improvements, until now.
Many people don’t know that a disrupted sleep pattern can severely confuse your brain in the long run. A study has found that disrupted sleep can ultimately lead to Alzheimer’s disease – the most common form of dementia – later in life.
A severe lack of sleep or even a disordered sleep pattern has side-effects that may not immediately be felt, apart from sleepiness. A brain that is not consistently refreshed begins to build-up Amyloids – a fibrous protein naturally found in the body – and the less sleep one has, the more the Amyloids build up to an Amyloid plaque. The plaque is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. In younger people the brain has the ability to clean up these Amyloids, but it becomes more and more difficult over time as the brain starts having to deal with exhaustion and the Amyloids build up.
