Cómo viajar con los Demás (o solo)

Cómo viajar con los Demás (o solo) | ANIMAL LATITUDE NEWS | Scoop.it
Cómo viajar con los Demás (o solo). Viajar es la gran pasión de muchas personas. Un sueño que la mayoría podemos hacer realidad durante las vacaciones de verano. Al menos durante 15 días al año tenemos la posibilidad de escapar de nuestra rutina laboral para descubrir lugares remotos. Eso sí, teniendo en cuenta que la lejanía de nuestro destino será directamente proporcional a lo abultado que sea nuestro bolsillo.
animal latitude's insight:

Seguimos con el tema... escapa solo o acompañado :)

(EN)-(FR)-(ES) - Glossary of CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) | CITES | ANIMAL LATITUDE NEWS | Scoop.it

"The basis for this glossary has been the compilation of the terms that are defined in the text of the Convention and in Resolutions. To this first set the Secretariat has added recurrent terms that have not been officially defined, such as ‘amendment proposal’. Users of this glossary should note that the definitions provided herewith may be specific to CITES and not valid in another context.

Each entry gives the following information:

1) A definition. Cross-reference hyperlinks are shown in blue and allow for navigation within the glossary. Some entries simply indicate a hyperlink to a document or another section of the website.
2) A 'See also' section that gives hyperlinks to related terms, or to relevant Web pages or documents outside the glossary.
3) The source of the definition, indicating whether it has been:
a) lifted word for word from existing text (indicated as “Definition from …”);
b) adapted from existing text (indicated as “Definition adapted from …”), when some editorial changes have been made (in particular to standardize the presentation of definitions); or
c) formulated by the Secretariat, as in the example given above. In this case no source is indicated.
4) The French and Spanish equivalents.


The glossary will be expanded regularly as the ..."

What is Cognitive Science? An introduction to the mind from the view points of: neuroscience, anthropology, computer science, psychology, philosophy, and linguistics. | ANIMAL LATITUDE NEWS | Scoop.it
Cognitive science is partly defined as the study of thought, learning, and mentalorganization, which are all investigable functions of the human brain. Therefore, byunderstanding the principles of the brain, we can take a step forward in holistically knowing whatthe mind is.Neuroscience and ConsciousnessThe brain is comprised of billions of neurons. Neurons are the fundamental cells in thebrain that communicate to perform most bodily functions and higher-level cognitions. The thingthat makes these cells unique is that they are plastic and able to adapt based on the experiencesthey encounter. Scientists' ability to study the connections and specific importances of groups ofneurons across the brain contributes to the understanding of how humans learn, think, andchange.Various behavioral methods like electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magneticresonance imaging (fMRI) allow us to record neural action in the brain during various tasksrelating to cognitive function. By using these techniques, and others, it has been proven that thefrontal lobe of the brain plays a large part in higher-level cognitive functions like analyzinginformation, solving future problems, developing strategies, and controlling purposeful behaviors.This is significant because lower-level primates do not have developed frontal lobes andtherefore are unable to complete these complex actions. This ability to perform higher-levelfunctions, that aren't simply primitive or instinctive responses, is what makes us distinctlyhuman, and ultimately what composes our unique conscious mind.While neuroscience can solve many questions about what it truly means to be aconscious being (like the ability to control instinctive behaviors), it cannot answer them all. Somehuman functions still remain mysterious because neuroscience can't pin down concepts likefree will or behavioral control. In conclusion, the mind is certainly an emergence from the brain,but it isn't necessarily a distinct subject that can be entirely comprehended by science in today’stime.3
