“Being a social butterfly just might change your brain: In people with a large network of friends and excellent social skills, certain brain regions are bigger and better connected than in people with fewer friends, a new study finds…The researchers couldn’t say whether social interaction caused these changes in brain structure and connectivity, or whether the brain determined how innately social someone was…In the case of the monkeys, theresearchers dictated the size of the animals’social network, so they concluded that social-group size was causing the brain differences…It can be inferred that a similar process takes place in human brains, but to prove this, long-term studies are needed…”.

Can we alter the shape of our brain through our behaviour? At the moment, what we know we can do is alter our behaviour so that it meets our current needs at a certain point in our life. With the help of hypnotherapy we can accelerate any desired change and make it sink into our subconscious mind, so that it begins to feel as part of who and how we are in a quick and effective way. As the recent study described above suggests, we may be in fact altering the shape of our brain with the use of hypnosis.
