Lots of things change our brains (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to these shows). Changes in sensory experience can cause massive rewiring of the brain, even as one ages. This rewiring involves fibers that supply the primary input to the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that is responsible for sensory perception, motor control and cognition.
Neuroscientist Marcel Oberlaender says, "This study overturns decades-old beliefs that most of the brain is hard-wired before a critical period that ends when one is a young adult. By changing the nature of sensory experience, we were able to demonstrate that the brain can rewire, even at an advanced age. This may suggest that if one stops learning and experiencing new things as one ages, a substantial amount of connections within the brain may be lost." Could this be one of the causes of Alzheimer's?
Contactees are constantly experiencing sensory changes--changes that make them smarter. We've interviewed 22 contactees, just for subscribers, who have all told Anne Strieber their personal experiences in their own words, such as Susan, who was led to tribal elders who explained what was happening to her by a golden eagle, and Jim, who met the Visitors in a military facility.
