Conference at Near East University on “How can we understand a complex structure like the brain”

The 6th of the “Periodical Conferences” titled as “How can we understand a complex structure like the brain” has been held by Near East University, Experimental Health Sciences Research Centre to share latest developments and arising matters in science.

According to the press release issued by the Directorate of Press and Public Relations of Near East University, the conference was held at Hall 1 of the İrfan Günsel Congress Centre and the spokesperson of the conference was Head of Institute of Neurological Sciences and Psychiatry of Hacettepe University Prof. Dr. Turgay Dalkara provided detailed information on mysteries and the features of the brain via exemplary research studies.

Prof. Dr. Dalkara pointed out that positive thinking was one of the features of the human brain and also people did not have interrogative skills.

Information regarding the features and skills of the human brain was provided…
Prof. Dr. Dalkara pointed out that the human brain had many special features and that one of these skills was the skill of positive thinking. He said that it was almost impossible to make people think negatively. He gave the example that fact that the world was round and that this was an old information as old as history. He added that although many people knew this fact, the world was flat to every logic and mentally healthy individuals. He further remarked that it was rather difficult for people to imagine the negative and that this situation was apparent on the media. Such that, you would not see a news headline like “The cure for cancer has not been fund today either”. Although this is a fact, this would not be the way information is put. News would be that the cure for cancer is found every day and that this would be the kind of news to see on the media. In this regard, Prof. Dr. Dalkara pointed out that the human brain was wired to think positively. He added that we did not have interrogative skills and that these skills were not naturally available. He said that we could believe in anything and that although we try and teach students interrogative skills at school, it could take many years for an individual to improve these skills. He strongly emphasised that in order to be a good scientist, one needed to have well-developed interrogation skills and to be objective.

According to Prof. Dr. Dalkara, Humans Speak in mathematics…
In addition to the above, Prof. Dr. Turgay Dalkara stated that as an organism which is part of the nature, humans spoke in mathematics and that every part of the human consisted of mathematics. He stated that mathematics was the language of the universe and stated that if we wanted to understand life, especially natural facts, then we needed to understand mathematics. He linked this idea to the fact that as part of this life and universe, humans spoke in mathematics. He gave examples such as the retina, dynamics of the joints and/or the hair on our skin were all linked to mathematics.

Sensors and receptors react to stress…
Prof. Dr. Turgay Dalkara further explained that the nerve cells in our brains, in other words neurons had sensors. When a physiological balance is not attained the nerve cells get stressed and the molecules there are thus activated. Nerve cells regulate the anxiety response to stress. Therefore, the signalisation system which is activated then the pain is created. Previously, this function of the sensors was not known.

High interest was shown to the conference…
It was pointed out that high interest was shown to the conference given by Prof. Dr. Turgay Dalkara; who has many scientific awards such as the TÜBİTAK Incentive Award, Eczacıbaşı Medical Award, Sandız Pharmacology Award and Vehbi Koç Award. Furthermore, he has 115 scientific articles which have been cited 3500 times in the field of medicine and he is a full member of the Turkish Academy of Sciences. Subsequent to the completion of the conference, Prof. Dr. Turgay Dalkara expressed how pleased he was of the high interest shown to his conference and thanked Members of the Near East University Rectorate, NEU Academicians and students.
