Complex environments push 'brain' evolution

Complex environments push 'brain' evolution | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Little animations trying to master a computer game are teaching neuroscience researchers how the brain evolves when faced with difficult tasks. Neuroscientists have programmed animated critters that they call 'animats.' The critters have a rudimentary neural system made of eight nodes: two sensors, two motors, and four internal computers that coordinate sensation, movement and memory.

Special issue: What is reality? - New Scientist

Special issue: What is reality? - New Scientist | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
The more we learn about reality, the less we understand it. Our special collection of articles explores how we define reality, what it could be and whether it exists

FastTFriend's curator insight, December 21, 2013 5:39 AM

 But what is reality? The more we probe it, the harder it becomes to comprehend. In the eight articles on this page we take a tour of our fundamental understanding of the world around us, starting with an attempt to define reality and ending with the idea that whatever reality is, it isn’t what it seems.

Ce qui se passe à votre insu dans un état de connexion collective : l’intelligence collective, une drogue ? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Quel que soit le groupe que vous intégrez, vous ne pouvez aucunement faire obstacle à la chimie de votre cerveau  et de l’atmosphère engendrée par cerveau social. C’est quasi impossible de ne pas être influencé par la pression qui se dégage collectivement lors d’un rassemblement aussi petit soit-il.

8 Things We Simply Don't Understand About the Human Brain

8 Things We Simply Don't Understand About the Human Brain | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Despite all the recent advances in the cognitive and neurosciences, there’s still much about the human brain that we do not know. Here are 8 of the most baffling problems currently facing science.

Bernard Ryefield's curator insight, July 30, 2013 7:15 AM

Science is always advancing (and putting itself in question), just too slowly for some; give it time (and efforts). The article is presenting some of the most interesting questions in brain science, some of them having huge implication: what if there is no free will ? In that case, better have philosophical arguments ready to answer this question: what we collectively do of it (just think about the judicial system) ?

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, August 9, 2013 10:42 AM

Neuroscientists cannot explain how incoming sensations get routed around such that they can be translated into subjective impressions like taste, color, or pain. Or how we can conjure a mental image in our minds on demand.

The Illusion of Control: Are There Benefits to Being Self-Deluded?

The Illusion of Control: Are There Benefits to Being Self-Deluded? | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Do people always overestimate how much they control their lives?
Philippe Vallat's insight:

This effect will have to be renamed the illusion of futility. In other words: when you have high control, you underestimate how much what you do really matters.

Comment prendre une bonne décision? (Vidéo, 50') | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it
Qu’il s’agisse d’une paire de chaussures ou de son partenaire pour la vie.... nous savons tous combien il est difficile de faire le bon choix. Une décision réfléchie est l’aboutissement d’un processus complexe que nous raconte avec un humour très british ce reportage de la BBC. Nous verrons notamment que pour résoudre des équations humaines subtiles, il peut être judicieux d’avoir recours à des formules mathématiques !

There is greater power and vitality in what we believe than in what we know. In a culture that places an alarmingly high value on knowledge, such a statement may sound questionable at best, or at worst merely absurd.

Rethinking Mental Health: Towards a Holistic Organismic Paradigm (Part 1 of 4)

We find ourselves in very interesting times with regard to our understanding of mental health. We find ever more heated, passionate, and polarized discussions taking place with regard to the so called mental disorders—how or even whether to try to classify them, which factors are generally helpful in recovery vs. which factors are generally harmful, what does “mental disorder” or “mental illness” even mean, and what does “recovery” even mean.

Komplexität, Unsicherheit und Intuition

Philippe Vallat's insight:

Komplexität ist sicherlich einer der meist gebrauchten Begriffe unserer Zeit, aber auch einer der am wenigsten fassbaren Begriffe unserer Zeit. Er wird immer dann heran gezogen, wenn es darum geht, zu erläutern, dass Veränderung ansteht oder notwendig ist, denn die Welt sei komplexer geworden und unsere bisherigen mentalen oder sonstigen Werkzeuge reichten nicht mehr aus, um mit dieser Komplexität Schritt zu halten.

Leadership & Perception | N2Growth Blog

Leadership & Perception | N2Growth Blog | Complex systems and projects | Scoop.it

Does perception matter? We’ve all heard the saying “perception is reality,” but is it true? Does perception never, rarely, sometimes, or always equal reality? While I long ago reached the conclusion that perception does in fact matter, it may not be for the reasons that you might think. I have found that the majority of people tend to be myopic with regard to perception…they understand their own perceptions, but are quite often either ignorant or intolerant of other’s perceptions. You see, the most important item to understand is that success as a leader has very little to do with your perception, but rather it has everything to do with the perception of others.
