Scientists construct first map of how the brain organizes everything we see | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Our eyes may be our window to the world, but how do we make sense of the thousands of images that flood our retinas each day? Scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, have found that the brain is wired to put in order all the categories of objects and actions that we see. They have created the first interactive map of how the brain organizes these groupings. (...) - By Yasmin Anwar, Media Relations UC Berkeley News Center, December 19, 2012

Empathy represses analytic thought, and vice versa: Brain physiology limits simultaneous use of both networks

Empathy represses analytic thought, and vice versa: Brain physiology limits simultaneous use of both networks | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it
When the brain's analytic network is engaged, our ability to appreciate the human cost of our action is repressed, researchers have found.

 

'At rest, our brains cycle between the social and analytical networks. But when presented with a task, healthy adults engage the appropriate neural pathway, the researchers found.

 

The study shows for the first time that we have a built-in neural constraint on our ability to be both empathetic and analytic at the same time'

Empathy vs. Analysis: you cannot  be both empathetic and analytic at the same moment.
