Why do we keep setting ourselves up for failure? It may be because we don't recognize the limitations of the human mind.

When we acknowledge personal limitations, we can then begin to look at what emerges from the collective.

Will the default mode network (DMN) be the functional explanation for continuity of identity in the brain?

Answer: The concept of the "default mode network" is quite new -- the first mention of it is from 2001, by Marcus Raichle and colleagues (A default mode of brain function).

reddit»»non-conformity and free thinking as a mental disorder? | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Is nonconformity and freethinking a mental illness? According to the newest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders), it certainly is. The manual identifies a new mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed. http://theunboundedspirit.com/nonconformity-and-freethinking-now-considered-mental-illnesses/

Six Life Lessons from Leo Tolstoy - Lesson 2: Practice Empathy

Six Life Lessons from Leo Tolstoy -  Lesson 2: Practice Empathy | With My Right Brain | Scoop.it

Lesson 2: Practice Empathy

 

Tolstoy was one of the great empathic adventurers of the 19th century, displaying an unusual desire to step into the shoes of people whose lives were vastly different from his own. Following the Emancipation of the Serfs in 1861, and influenced by a growing movement across Russia which extolled the virtues of the peasantry, Tolstoy not only adopted traditional peasant dress, but worked alongside the laborers on his estate, ploughing the fields and repairing their homes with his own hands. For a blue-blooded count, such actions were nothing short of remarkable. Although no doubt tinged with paternalism,

 

 

Tolstoy enjoyed the company of peasants and consciously began to shun the literary and aristocratic elite in the cities. He also founded an experimental school for peasant children based on the libertarian and egalitarian ideas of Rousseau and Proudhon, and even taught there himself. Unlike many of his fellow aristocrats who claimed solidarity with rural laborers, Tolstoy believed you could never understand the reality of their lives unless you had a taste of it yourself.

Navigate the brain in a way that was never before possible; fly through major brain pathways, compare essential circuits, zoom into a region to explore the cells that comprise it, and the functions that depend on it.

 

The Human Connectome Project aims to provide an unparalleled compilation of neural data, an interface to graphically navigate this data and the opportunity to achieve never before realized conclusions about the living human brain.
