Paul Gagnon's curator insight, January 12, 2013 8:16 PM

This is interesting both for what it promises about understanding what happens when we decide, how our neural circuitry may impact our decisions - the way medicine may use this needs to be monitored for sure, else we may all be dumbed down to their their sense of the 'operative'  algorithm - and what to think when charged with making decisons, i.e., 'So don’t think too much. Having too much information is a plague. As they say, over-information generates cognitive stress. Often, too much thinking overwhelms our brain’s ability to synthesise all the facts, and thus, our ability to take decision gets distracted. We land up making bad decisions. When we’re distracted, we stop introspecting and listen to our emotional minds. Decisions in a happy state of mind are happy decisions.'
