Color Plays Musical Chairs In the Brain

Color Plays Musical Chairs In the Brain | curating your interests | Scoop.it

But Noë's more interested in color as an ecological property -- a feature of the way light and surfaces interact. Like Goethë, he believes that color is fluid, changing, open to interpretation. We think of it as stable, but it's not. It can look one way under one light, one way under another, different when you turn it different ways or notice a new highlight. By his estimation, "It’s not... intrinsic to the surface of the leaf that it is green. It's greenness is in the way it behaves in relation to lighting."

How the brain controls our habits

How the brain controls our habits | curating your interests | Scoop.it

 

Habits are behaviors wired so deeply in our brains that we perform them automatically. This allows you to follow the same route to work every day without thinking about it, liberating your brain to ponder other things, such as what to make for dinner.

 

However, the brain's executive command center does not completely relinquish control of habitual behavior.
