Have you ever thought of training your ears and brain as if it were an extension of media and culture? If so, you can begin with a systematic delivery of psychoacoustical music or even ambient music for relaxation as a form of media. Certain classical music, like that of Mozart, Haydn and Vivaldi, has specific structure, producing sound waves in organized patterns. Within these patterns are vital elements including time, frequency and volume. When listening to music, the ear is receiving the musical sound waves - waves that arrive in different frequencies, measured in Hertz (Hz).
You may want to research the concept of neurotechnology with a background of ambient music as part of a rising trend in accessing the media of universal appeal as culture. What this means in concrete terms is stimulating the brain with sound to influence different functions of the mind and body.
These frequencies stimulate the brain, and thus affect different functions of the mind and body. For further information , check out The Listening Program site. Whatever music you choose, if the music is able to train your auditory system to process sounds for improved attention, communication, and listening, you can enhance your creativity as you manage your eating habits.
The idea is to link cooking and eating food with training your ear and brain through systematic delivery of psychoacoustically modified music. Read a report on one of the studies online .
How do you adapt the intergenerational or ethnic family recipes to preserve the tradition but not its debilitating health effects? That's what culinary memoirs writing covers in addition to getting people to walk down an Epicurian memory lane.
Food is medicine and can be part of neurotechnology. So is relaxing or motivational music that enhances concentration. Here's how they work in tandem for enhancing both memory and digestion along with conversation and body language. Wise food traditions have a long history.
Neurotechnology can help to balance friends and family by motivating the listener's yearning to learn, think, relax, de-stress, focus, and inspire as food, conversation, and music all become interactive healing tools at the table. When nutritionists offer workshops in writing and/or recording culinary memoirs, they usually focus on adapting traditional family recipes by substituting healthier ingredients.
One example would be switching to extra virgin olive oil, grapeseed oil, or rice bran oil, instead of baking or frying food using those solid, white hydrogenated trans-fat driven shortenings that their families used in the 1950s.
It can be done with groups of any ages and any physical conditions that can meet together online or in a classroom. Nutritional family historians discuss with students how to write culinary memoirs, traditional family recipe cookbooks, along with adapting old recipes, modifying ethnic menus with healthier substitutions. The idea is to combine neurotechnology with culinary memoirs to achieve a healthy balance.
The Neurotechnology of media
The neurotechnology of media is about culture as connection such as eating a communal meal while reading a newspaper at the same time you're listening to music that relaxes you and makes you feel valued, positive about yourself, the environment, and your outlook. Certain types of music played while you're cooking, eating or doing creative work put you in a favorable mood to either relax, think, learn, concentrate, motivate, de-stress, listen more accurately to others as they speak around the meal table, or inspire others. Check out the book, Neurotechnology with Culinary Memoirs from the Daily Nutrition and Health Reporter.
When you sit down with your family or friends to eat a meal, the type of music you listen to creates a specific mood that aids your digestion and helps you to either de-stress or concentrate on whatever you're doing--eating, laughing, listening to people talk while the music is playing in the background at a low volume. Neurotechnology can be about music, culinary memoirs of what food meant to you in the past, or what it means to you know, and about relaxing and enjoying the moment.
