Lo sguardo sull’acqua -suono, odore, colore – ci induce ad assumere una default-mode che gli scienziati ipotizzano permetta al cervello di consolidare le esperienze e di prepararsi quindi a reagire agli stimoli ambientali. Questa funzione interagisce con l’ippocampo, parte essenziale allo sviluppo neuroplastico del cervello, che aiuta a creare nuovi ricordi e nuovo apprendimento. Questo è quanto afferma Wallace J. Nichols nel libro Blue Mind (state of mind)

BLUE MIND, Wallace J. Nichols #bluemind #wallacejnichols #tempodacqua #thetimeofwater

Blue Mind is a landmark book by marine biologist Wallace J. Nichols on the remarkable effects of water on our health and well-being. Nichols revolutionizes how we think about these questions, revealing the remarkable truth about the benefits of being in, on, under, or simply near water. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with compelling personal stories from top athletes, leading scientists, military veterans, and gifted artists, he shows how proximity to water can improve performance, increase calm, diminish anxiety, and increase professional success.

Wallace “J.” Nichols is a scientist, wild water advocate, movement-maker, and author of the New York Times best seller book – Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do. He takes a slow, collaborative approach with leaders in businesses, government, non-profits, and academia to inspire a deeper connection with nature and inventive solutions to pressing issues. His research and expeditions have taken him to coasts and waterways across North, Central and South America, to Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe where he continually finds that the emotional connection to waters of all kinds–rather than force of financial gain–is what keeps his colleagues and collaborators working hard to understand and restore our blue planet.
