Fire Together—Wire Together


If you read last week’s blog and listened to Barbara Arrowsmith-Young’s story, I hope you felt hopeful and energized by the possibilities wired into our God-designed brains. God tells us:

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Romans 12:2 (NLT)

As the science of neurology progresses, scientists are realizing more and more that this is true. Not only can we change how we think, but this change can transform our lives.

In this week’s TedTalks, Dr. Max Cynader gives us an easy to follow introduction to the world of neurons in our brain. I love his slogan:

Neurons that fire together wire together.

How do we learn? How do we remember? How do we remember what we studied?

Listen for 18 minutes and figure this out.
