Neurologists Discover Michelangelo's Paintings Of God With A Brain

Neurologists Discover Michelangelo's Paintings Of God With A Brain | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Michelangelo was a religious man, but he was also a scientist.  He must have been very conflicted about painting a brain and brainstem in God's head and neck, especially in the Sistine Chapel.  After all, he was commissioned by the Church, which did not take too kindly to literal images on its murals.

The Grand Illusion: Consciousness

The Grand Illusion: Consciousness | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it
Wherever you are reading this, take a moment now and notice your body: Are
your legs crossed? Is your posture straight or are you slouching? Are you
slightly warm or cold? Now notice your surroundings: Is your body in a
serene or noxious environment?  Is it being transported in a moving
vehicle, rocking slightly from side to side? If you could precisely answer
any of those questions, congratulations, you are conscious. How
consciousness arises from, as the great neuroscientist V.S. Ramachandran
mused, "a three-pound mass of jelly that you can hold in your palm" is one
of science's deepest enigmas.

Alive Inside: How music can help fight dementia. » Sociology Lens

Alive Inside: How music can help fight dementia. » Sociology Lens | Psychology, Sociology & Neuroscience | Scoop.it

What’s your favourite song? Everyone has one. Or maybe, if you’re like me, you have about twenty. Those particular songs, our desert island discs, are powerful. They connect with us at a deep level and can arouse a variety of emotions: nostalgia, empowerment, wistfulness, sadness, ecstasy, maybe even a combination of these. But the potential of music – and particularly our favourite music, goes further than this. The forthcoming documentary ‘Alive Inside’, currently doing the rounds of the film festivals, powerfully illustrates the emancipatory potential of music which has largely gone unnoticed until now. For older people suffering the confusion and loneliness of dementia, music can bring them out of their isolation and help them re-engage with the outside world.
