Human brains 'hard-wired' to link what we see with what we do

Human brains 'hard-wired' to link what we see with what we do | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Your brain's ability to instantly link what you see with what you do is down to a dedicated information 'highway,' suggests new research. For the first time, researchers have found evidence of a specialized mechanism for spatial self-awareness that combines visual cues with body motion. The newly-discovered system could explain why some schizophrenia patients feel like their actions are controlled by someone else.

Mlik Sahib's curator insight, March 14, 2014 1:57 AM

"In previous research, Dr. Fowler and Yale sociologist Nicholas Christakis —a co-author on the new study—popularized the idea that obesity, smoking, emotions and ideas can spread through networks of friends and acquaintances. They wrote a 2009 book on the subject called "Connected." Those earlier studies have prompted skepticism from some scholars who questioned the statistical methods used.

A debate over the true impact of online behavior has raged since the birth of social media, but sociologists and psychologists rarely have access to enough raw data from personal interactions that would reveal whether online feelings could influence people in the same way as in face-to-face encounters."
