  • 13. 2 Your peripheral vision isn’t even clear… even so peripheral vision “calls the shots”
  • 14. Your Memories Don’t Exist Either 2
  • 15. 2 Check out Elizabeth Loftus, University of Washington
  • 16. What Does This Mean? 2
  • 17. Everyone is having their own individual experience; just because people are perceiving the same thing, doesn’t mean they are experiencing the same thing in the same way. 2
  • 18. Almost nothing you consciously think matters. 3
  • 19. At least 90% of all mental processing occurs unconsciously. 3
  • 20. John-Dylan Haynes, a neuroscientist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany 3 Chun Siong Soon, Marcel Brass, Hans-Jochen Heinze & John-Dylan Haynes. Unconscious determinants of free decisions in the human brain. Nature Neuroscience April 13th, 2008. By looking at brain activity while making a decision, researchers could predict what choice people would make 7-10 seconds before they themselves were even aware of having made a decision.

Editor's Notes

  1. Failure To Thrive Symptoms: weight loss, inactivity, lack of interaction, impaired cognitive functions, potential death The Monograph was a study of studies, looked at 286 other studies We react with brain chemicals, we have stress chemicals, oxytocin, it’s not just a social interaction, it’s a biochemical processes When you don’t have enough social connection, the body goes into a high stress mode, and the high levels of stress hormones turn off the immune system. And that’s how you die. In some orphanages where babies were not getting social connection (no physical touch, no social interaction), 1/3rd babies in orphanages die, and half of the ones that live develop life long mental and physical illnesses. “When an infant falls below the threshold of physical affection needed to stimulate the production of growth hormone and the immune system, his (or her) body starts shutting down.” (Born for love book)
  2. "Social networks as important as exercise, diet across the span of our lives: Researchers show how social relationships reduce health risk in each stage of life." (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 4 January 2016. <www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/01/160104163210.htm>.)
  3. Every time you have a memory of an event, you recreate it. It’s not stored anywhere. And you throw all sort of things that never happened. Glasses flip upside down Peripheral vision, blind spot, Pennies, jet engine
  4. The image projected by your retna is upside down. Your brain takes this and makes it look normal. What happens if you looked at everything upside down?
  5. The image projected by your retna is upside down. Your brain takes this and makes it look normal. What happens if you looked at everything upside down?
  6. ruth rosenholtz, MIT Computer science and artificial intelligence lab (blurry but directs where to look)
  7. They decided to update the map, design contest Won by Michael Kvrivishvili (from Moscow), had never even been to boston Key is geographical inaccuracy
  8. Here is the peripheral vision test again Notice it is much more pleasing, you lose less info in peripheral vision, which is why it’s a better map
  9. ruth rosenholtz, MIT Computer science and artificial intelligence lab (blurry but directs where to look)
  10. When you retrieve a memory, it’s like playing a video clip, like we’re accessing a file and playing it back. Right?? Like Inside Out
  11. This is wrong A memory is a pattern of neuron firings When we retrieve a memory, we recreate the “neuron memory trace” (the pattern of neuron firings) As you’re recreating a memory, it’s common and easy to have other neurons firings tag along, or drop out It seems like it’s accurate, but what we remember is just a shadow of the event
  12. Everything is
  13. We can see your decision 7 seconds ahead of time Explain the meme in story form (unconcious is doing work, send good ideas up to concious) System 2, drivers of motivation and decisions, mental models? Rationalize go get a drink of whater
  14. So we all read But there are a lot of areas of the brain dedicated to something But reading is new. When we learn to read, we steal bits and pieces from other parts of the brain This is called neuroplasticity
  15. Our brains are changing to respond to the new way that humans are reading They read up to a max of 60% of online material We don’t read as deeply, we skim and scan If we’re going to share, we do it 25% through, or at the end This isn’t good or bad, it just is (regular reading changed our brains, people said it was the end of civilization)
  16. Neuroplasticity You can transform your brain (see with your tounge)
  17. Propranolol is the drug that disrupts the protein Lonergan, et.al., Propranolol’s effects on the consolidation and reconsolidation of long-term emotional memory in healthy participants: a meta-analysis. J Psychiatry Neurosci. 2013 Jul; 38(4): 222–231 doi: 10.1503/jpn.120111 Xenon Gas Research: Milad, M. R., Rosenbaum, B. L., & Simon, N. M. (2014). The Neuroscience of Fear Extinction. Neuroscience, 62, 17–23 The laser can even be used outside of the brain, no implant involved (has not been done with humans for obvious reasons) Chuong, et.al., Noninvasive optical inhibition with a red-shifted microbial rhodopsin. Nat Neurosci. 2014 Aug;17(8):1123-9. doi: 10.1038/nn.3752.
