The social origins of intelligence in the brain

The social origins of intelligence in the brain | Education materials and tools for financial literacy | Scoop.it

By studying the injuries and aptitudes of Vietnam War veterans who suffered penetrating head wounds during the war, researchers have found that brain regions that contribute to optimal social functioning are also vital to general intelligence and emotional intelligence.

 

This finding, reported in the journal Brain, bolsters the view that general intelligence emerges from the emotional and social context of one’s life.

“We are trying to understand the nature of general intelligence and to what extent our intellectual abilities are grounded in social cognitive abilities,” said Aron Barbey, a University of Illinois professor of neuroscience, psychology, and speech and hearing science.

 

Barbey, an affiliate of the Beckman Institute and he Institute for Genomic Biology at the University of Illinois, led the new study with an international team of collaborators.


The study involved 144 Vietnam veterans injured by shrapnel or bullets that penetrated the skull, damaging distinct brain tissues while leaving neighboring tissues intact. Using CT scans, the scientists painstakingly mapped the affected brain regions of each participant, then pooled the data to build a collective map of the brain.

 

The researchers used a battery of carefully designed tests to assess participants’ intellectual, emotional and social capabilities. They then looked for damage in specific brain regions tied to deficits in the participants’ ability to navigate intellectual, emotional or social realms. Social problem solving in this analysis primarily involved conflict resolution with friends, family and peers at work.


As in their earlier studies of general intelligence and emotional intelligence, the researchers found that regions of the frontal cortex (at the front of the brain), the parietal cortex (further back near the top of the head) and the temporal lobes (on the sides of the head behind the ears) are all implicated in social problem solving. The regions that contributed to social functioning in the parietal and temporal lobes were located only in the brain’s left hemisphere, while both left and right frontal lobes were involved.

There is a popular myth that humans use no more than 10% of their brains throughout their entire life. This has been shown to be untrue as brain damage consistently results in loss of function. Nonetheless, this myth provided the premise for some great movies such as the 2014 film, Lucy

Strange that CT scans were used. High resolution Functional MRI would show both structure and activity. Other imaging methods such as optogenetics, MEG, TMS, BOLD, etc. could also help to pinpoint these areas without using radiation on an already-injured brain.

[Empathic Design] The power of authenticity in teaching empathy

[Empathic Design] The power of authenticity in teaching empathy | Education materials and tools for financial literacy | Scoop.it
It's not easy to be authentic in front of a classroom or crowd, but it can be essential to creating lasting impact in teaching -- especially when teaching about empathy work.

 

Empathy is an essential skill to connect with the people and world around you.

 

 It is also so much more than even compassion- to be truly empathetic one has to feel how it might be to be in another’s place. So how can we teach this skill, and how can we simplify it enough to teach bit effectively to children?

 

The most effective way to teach it is experientially- and the most fun way is through the arts.

VIJAY's curator insight, September 28, 2014 5:44 AM
सांई बाबा की शिक्षा

सबका मालिक एक है
साई बाबा की सबसे बड़ी शिक्षा और सन्देश है कि जाति, धर्म, समुदाय, आदि व्यर्थ की बातों में ना पड़कर 

आपसी मतभेद भुलाकर आपस में प्रेम और सदभावाना से रहना चाहिए क्योकि सबका मलिक एक है।
श्रद्धा और सबूरी
साई बाबा ने अपने जीवन में यह सन्देश दिया है कि हमेशा श्रद्धा और विश्‍वास के साथ जीवन यापन करते हुए 

सबूरी (सब्र)के साथ जीवन व्यतीत करें।
मानवता ही सबसे बड़ा धर्म है
साई बाबा ने कभी भी किसी को धर्म की अवहेलना नहीं की अपितु सभी धर्मों का सम्मान करने की सलाह देते 

हुए हमेशा मनवता को ही सबसे बडा धर्म और कर्म बताते हुए जीवन जीने की अमूल्य शिक्षा प्रदान की है।
जातिगत भेद भुला कर प्रेम पूर्वक रहना
साई बाबा ने कहा है की जाति,समाज,भेद-भाव,आदि सब बाते ईश्‍वर ने नहीं बल्कि इंसानों द्वारा बनाया गया 

हैं इसलिए ईश्‍वर की नजर में न तो कोई उच्च है और न ही कोई निम्न इसलिए जो काम ईश्‍वर को भी पसंद नहीं 

है वह मनुष्यों को तो करना ही नहीं चाहिए। अर्थात जात-पात,धर्म,समाज आदि मिथ्या बातों में न पड़ कर 

आपस में प्रेमपूर्वक रहकर जीवन व्यतीत करना चाहिए।
गरीबो और लाचार की मदद करना सबसे बड़ी पूजा है
साई बाबा ने हमेशा ही सभी जनमानस से यही बार-बार कहा है कि सभी के साथ ही समानता का व्यवहार 

करना चाहिए। गरीबों और लाचारों की यथासम्भव मदद करना चाहिए और यही सबसे बडी पूजा है। क्योकि 

जो गरीबों, लाचारों की मदद करता है ईश्वर उसकी मदद करता है।
माता-पिता, बुजुर्गो, गुरुजनों, बडो का सम्मान करनाचाहिए
साई बाबा हमेशा ही समझाते थे कि अपने से बडो का आदर सम्मान करना चाहिए। गुरुजनो बुजर्गो को 

सम्मान करना जिसस उनका आर्शीवाद प्राप्त होता है जिससे हमारे जीवन की मुश्किलों में सहायता मिलती 

है।

MOOCs Are No Longer A Cultural Export Of The West | FastCoExist.com

MOOCs Are No Longer A Cultural Export Of The West | FastCoExist.com | Education materials and tools for financial literacy | Scoop.it

At a recent event at the United Nations about education accessibility in the developing world, Anant Agarwal, CEO of the open-source online-learning platform edX and a former MIT computer scientist, heard one word too much for his liking.

 

“The most-used word was ‘hegemony.’ MOOCs are criticized: Is this U.S. hegemony in action?” he says.

 

The early wave of massive open online courses that began around 2012 was propelled by the excitement that anyone, anywhere could sit in on a course from some of the most elite universities in the United States. People from all over the world--especially from nations where access to higher education is limited--signed up in droves to participate in virtual classes like "Introduction to Artificial Intelligence" from Stanford University or "Justice" from Harvard.

 

Among the inevitable cascade of criticisms that followed the initial hype was this: online-learning platforms were peddling yet another blunt cultural export of the West, shoehorning ill-fitted course materials into societies where education access was clearly in high demand, while not really helping them develop or even undermining their homegrown education infrastructure.

 

Whether you believe online learning is going to save or sink higher education, at least this particular criticism is losing ground today. A much wider array of nations are now become MOOC adopters and providers.

"Adobe has partnered with Sir Ken Robinson, the internationally known author and creativity expert, to develop an exclusive five-part video series outlining his thoughts on the importance and power of creativity in education. You may be familiar with this gifted speaker as he has done several Ted Talks. This is an amazing clip and the fact that Adobe partners with Sir Ken Robinson and showcases his take on, how do you define creativity, really puts this topic in the forefront. Sir Ken Robinson’s chat about changing educational paradigms, and how schools are killing creativity goes hand-in-hand with our recent focus on apps and creativity."
