It would be interesting to conduct “live” studies in real time over a period of 20 years or more to

A) observe the impact on patients under psychiatric & psychology care who to measure the changes in the brain as people develop new coping mechanism

B) observe pre and post puberty children without mental disorders, and continue observing as they go through adulthood. Do strong emotions like falling in love, grieving a lost one, having a baby, getting married or getting divorce alter the brain structures temporarily, permanently or not at all?

This is good news. There is so much that we do not know about the mind and yet with mindfulness we are capable of achieving things that currently defy scientific logic.
Medical School Opens Mindfulness Division

"The University of Massachusetts Medical School announced last week that the department is now home to “what is believed to be the first-of-its-kind academic division focused on the study of mindfulness.”"

Buddhism & Neuroscience

"Can training the mind make us more attentive, altruistic, and serene? Can we learn to manage our disturbing emotions in an optimal way? What are the transformations that occur in the brain when we practice meditation? In a new book titled Beyond the Self, two friends—Matthieu Ricard, who left a career as a molecular biologist to become a Buddhist monk in Nepal, and Wolf Singer, a distinguished neuroscientist—engage in an unusually well-matched conversation about meditation and the brain."

"It does not suffice to ponder how the human psyche works and elaborate complex theories about it, as, for instance, Freud did. Such intellectual constructs cannot replace two millennia of direct investigation of the workings of mind through penetrating introspection conducted with trained minds that have become both stable and clear." (Matthieu Ricard)

Time to reform our educational systems to support our evolving work environment and the way we work, which has changed so much since the 1950’s and will continue to change.

I am researching the SDG's and looking for projects that are reforming the educational systems worldwide. The current systems were built to support the industrial age, the post WWII economic boom and large families with mom staying at home to look after the kids and daddy off to work.

The current systems are outdated and do not support the new industries that are emerging and evolving around the way we communicate. IT, the Internet of All Things, AI and neuroscience are all influencing the way we think, work, create and market our business and ourselves.

Business Services and Leisure related industries are possibly two of the fastest growing industries and people skills are essential for engaging with the right partners to produce solid partnerships for sustainable socio-economical development.

I am reaching out to anyone who has already done similar research or is involved in related projects because I want to be actively involved in transforming the way we teach and the way we learn.
