The Second Brain In Your Gut - The Connection

The Second Brain In Your Gut - The Connection | mBraining | Scoop.it
Some people call it the hangries. Others call it food fury. In my house it’s called the Shan Monster and my husband generally gets a fifteen-minute warning before she starts spitting venom. The only way to fend her off is to feed her. Fast.
 
I know I’m not alone when I confess to being grumpy when I’m underfed and this week I’ve found myself looking into the science of how being nutritionally deprived can set off mood changes in my brain. ...

Doing well to do more good

Doing well to do more good | mBraining | Scoop.it

Problems worthy of attack prove their worth by attacking back. What attributes do communications people need to bring to this fight? This is about bringing our whole beings to our work: our brains, hearts and guts, as well as our arms and legs. It takes guts to hold the mirror up to our organisaitons, and truly influence CEO, management and Board direction. It takes brains to figure out how to solve really tough social problems. It takes heart to know what’s the right thing to do in tricky situations. And sometimes we need to be creative to bring in enough arms and legs to get the work done.

Dave Wood's insight:
Use guts, heart, brain, arms and legs to do more good. Love the way its summarized in this table.

How to release traumatic memory that could be stored in your body.

Tom Wojick's curator insight, November 7, 2017 2:02 PM

This is important: "However, if the stress response is not processed, it remains in the tissues of the body. When a subsequent stressful event that does not pose a serious threat occurs, the traumatic memory is recalled." Stress is a serious aspect of life that accounts for much of the illness and disease we encounter. Learning to process the stress we encounter and to improve our resiliency is critical to be able to experience the joys of life.

Frontiers | New Frontiers in Heart Rate Variability and Social Coherence Research: Techniques, Technologies, and Implications for Improving Group Dynamics and Outcomes | Public Health

Frontiers | New Frontiers in Heart Rate Variability and Social Coherence Research: Techniques, Technologies, and Implications for Improving Group Dynamics and Outcomes | Public Health | mBraining | Scoop.it
Concepts embraced by the term coherence have been identified as central to fields such as quantum physics, physiology and social science. There are different types of coherence, although the term always implies a harmonious relationship, correlations and connections between the various parts of a system. A specific measure derived from heart rate variability (HRV) provides a measure of physiological coherence. Another type of coherence, social coherence, relates to the harmonious alignment between couples or pairs, family units, small groups or larger organizations in which a network of relationships exists among individuals who share common interests and objectives. A high degree of social coherence is reflected by stable and harmonious relationships, which allows for the efficient flow and utilization of energy and communication required for optimal collective cohesion and action. Social coherence requires that group members are attuned and are emotionally connected with each other, and that the group’s emotional energy is organized and regulated by the group as a whole. A number of studies are reviewed which have explored various types of synchronization in infants, pairs and groups, indicating that feelings of cooperation, trust, compassion and increased pro-social behaviors depends largely on the establishment of a spontaneous synchronization of various physiological rhythms between individuals. This paper discusses a new application using HRV monitoring in social coherence research, and the importance of physiological synchronization in group developmental processes and dynamics. Building on the extensive body of research showing that providing feedback of HRV coherence level at the individual level can improve self-regulation, we suggest the following hypotheses: 1) Providing feedback of individual and collective HRV coherence and the degree of heart rhythm synchronization will increase group coherence, and heart rhythm synchronization among group members, 2) Training in techniques to increase group coherence and heart rhythm synchronization will correlate with increased pro-social behaviors, such as kindness and cooperation among individuals, improved communication, and decreases in social discord and adversarial interactions, 3) Biomagnetic fields produced by the heart may be a primary mechanism in mediating heart rate variability synchronization among group members. Data supporting each of the hypothesis is discussed.
