A Neuroscientist's Radical Theory of How Networks Become Conscious - Wired Science

A Neuroscientist's Radical Theory of How Networks Become Conscious - Wired Science | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

It’s a question that’s perplexed philosophers for centuries and scientists for decades: Where does consciousness come from? We know it exists, at least in ourselves. But how it arises from chemistry and electricity in our brains is an unsolved mystery.

Happiness and meaningfulness distinguished and distilled!

John Michel's curator insight, January 7, 2014 12:04 AM

If happiness is about getting what you want, then meaningfulness is about expressing and defining yourself. A life of meaning is more deeply tied to a valued sense of self and one's purpose in the larger context of life and community.

Saberes Sin Fronteras OVS's curator insight, January 7, 2014 12:52 PM

la ciencia confirma hoy lo que los sabios antiguos, en el Yi-Ging chino,  proclamaban como principio basico de una vida humana: Ying y Yan, luz y sombras, vida con sentido y sinsentidos que nos va poniendo en el camino la misma realidad vital. Ambos son esenciales para vivir en realidad, no en ensueños falsos.

» The Importance of Play for Adults - World of Psychology | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Our society tends to dismiss play for adults. Play is perceived as unproductive, petty or even a guilty pleasure.

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, December 19, 2013 2:08 AM

“Defining play is difficult because it’s a moving target,” Eberle said. “[It’s] a process, not a thing.” He said that it begins in anticipation and hopefully ends in poise. “In between you find surprise, pleasure, understanding — as skill and empathy — and strength of mind, body, and spirit.”

Brown called play a “state of being,” “purposeless, fun and pleasurable.” For the most part, the focus is on the actual experience, not on accomplishing a goal, he said.

reddit»»non-conformity and free thinking as a mental disorder? | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the newest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), it certainly is. The manual identifies a new mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed. http://theunboundedspirit.com/nonconformity-and-freethinking-now-considered-mental-illnesses/

Compassion: Learning to Care for Oneself and Others

Compassion: Learning to Care for Oneself and Others | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Without self-care and self-compassion we cannot be effective caregivers for extended period of times. Self-care can include joining a support group, meditation or other mind-body class, a spiritual support-group or other self-care approaches.

 

Cancer does not solely affect individuals. It affects the larger community, which consists of families, friends, neighbors and coworkers. Witnessing a loved one overcoming or struggling with cancer may foster feelings of joy or sorrow. These deep emotions are rooted in our heart's ability to have compassion. The Latin for compassion -- "com-pati" -- means, "to suffer with." Consequently, family members, particularly patients' spouses/partners, "suffer with." When caregivers witness their loved one hurting from cancer and its treatment, they hurt as well.

 

In fact, our own research reveals caregivers experience symptoms such as psychological distress, fatigue, and sleep disturbances just as much or even more than patients. The first step in compassion is often the feeling of empathy toward those who suffer, which in turn produces the genuine desire to help. Empathy, as in being in someone else's shoes, without progress to true compassion can be detrimental in the long run for the caregiver.

Jessica Smith's curator insight, October 9, 2014 12:00 AM

This article really touches on how important it is to support caregivers just as much as the person struggling with the disease. It takes a lot of compassion to be a long term caregiver. It also hones in on what caregivers go through, and helps to understand it in a way. It simply reminds us that more than the patient get hurt.

Mirror Neurons: Cells that Read Minds

Mirror Neurons: Cells that Read Minds | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

Humans, it turns out, have mirror neurons that are far smarter, more flexible and more highly evolved than any of those found in monkeys, a fact that scientists say reflects the evolution of humans' sophisticated social abilities.

 

The human brain has multiple mirror neuron systems that specialize in carrying out and understanding not just the actions of others but their intentions, the social meaning of their behavior and their emotions.

 

"We are exquisitely social creatures," Dr. Rizzolatti said. "Our survival depends on understanding the actions, intentions and emotions of others."
