Could we create a perfect society by tweaking two areas of the human brain?

Could we create a perfect society by tweaking two areas of the human brain? | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it
Want to create an egalitarian utopia? A rigid hierarchical hellscape? (Or an egalitarian hellscape and hierarchical utopia, depending on your politics?) You might just need to stimulate or suppress two crucial parts of the human brain.

The Neuroscience of Your Brain On Fiction

Stories stimulate the brain. Metaphors like “He had leathery hands” rouse the sensory cortex.  Intersting study on what happens in our brain when exposed to different adjectives, etc. when reading.

In his book `Incognito', David Eagleman tackles the question `Who is in charge here, really?' in a most lucid and interesting way. Brain chemistry plays a far greater role than we realise but can we press the `over ride' button. That is the bottomline.

Neural Networking: Your Brain's Internal Connections Operate Like a Country Club: Scientific American Gallery

Neural Networking: Your Brain's Internal Connections Operate Like a Country Club: Scientific American Gallery | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

The researchers liken the favored networks to a country club setting, in which people with a great number of social connections bond with other connection-rich socialites. In the brain, the socialites (the hubs with the most connections, shown in red in the image) included the regions that aggregate and process many kinds of information—the superior frontal and superior parietal cortex, for example, as well as the subcortical hippocampus, putamen and thalamus.

10 Good Reasons Not to Trust Your Brain

10 Good Reasons Not to Trust Your Brain | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it
If the human brain is such a marvel of evolution, why does it so often betray us into making poor decisions and acting foolishly?

 

The human brain is a marvelous tool. However, it was designed for a very different world than we currently live in. As a result, it retains many design flaws that do not serve us well, especially in today’s business world where new ways of thinking and ongoing innovation are essential for success.

 

Perhaps the most damaging flaw is the brain’s tendency to think it’s right. In fact, it often insists it is right even in the face of contradictory evidence. So the next time you’re absolutely, positively sure you’re right, consider these 10 reasons not to trust your brain:

[VIDEO] David Eagleman: Welcome to Your Future Brain

We're entering a very interesting stage of human history right now where we can start importing technology to enhance our natural senses or perception of the world, says neuroscientist David Eagleman.

Once considered mainly 'brain glue,' astrocytes' power revealed | Technoscience and the Future | Scoop.it

A type of cell plentiful in the brain, long considered mainly the stuff that holds the brain together and oft-overlooked by scientists more interested in flashier cells known as neurons, wields more power in the brain than has been realized, according to new research published March 29 in Science Signaling.
