Attention must be Paid!

"Attention must be paid!

This is the title of a review that focuses on the latest discoveries of neuroscience with regard to the effects of attention on the treatment of psychological diseases, and the implications of attention to the human mind in general.

Attention produces a modification of pathways in the brain that literally remaps it. This fact makes possible the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), for instance. But the implications go far beyond the treatment of acute pathology. We are given a new angle on how observation can transform human consciousness. Brain plasticity can be affected through awareness. Human beings have the power to change their brains and to transform their health by themselves.

It is especially interesting that Jiddu Krishnamurti dedicated all his adult life to teach precisely this. Science's new findings in this field will undoubtedly help us to challenge skepticism and misunderstanding born of traditional and outdated views about the brain and consciousness as a whole.
