In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how to increase attention span, focus, and concentration. There’s a part of the brain called the limbic system which has something to do with emotions, behavior, and memory and it has a part called hippocampus(which has to do with memory, focus, and concentration) and amygdala (stress and fear). The mammillary bodies is a connecting structure between the hippocampus and amygdala.
The limbic system is very sensitive to vitamin B1 deficiencies. Wernicke-Korsakoff Syndrome is a condition where you can’t create new memories and it is involving low amounts of vitamin B1 in the mammillary bodies caused by alcohol.
