I attended a conference called the Brain Institute in Albuquerque.
Abigail Baird Ph. Nevertheless, baird was among the keynote speakers. Dr. Vassar College where she is Assistant Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Adolescent Studies in the Department of Psychology. Essentially, I’ve condensed her information so that I know it’s enjoyable and understandable. Really is fascinating if you will follow along, that said, this will be a bit complex. Here we go. We will look at a brief overview of a few areas of the brain behavior. Amygdala ~ The brain’s burglar alarm. That said, this part of the brain orchestrates behavior problem solving, Just like a music Conductor orchestrates the tempo, slow, soft, loud, who comes in when.
Frontal Cortex ~ The Conductor This part of the brain is located at the top, front of our skull and is responsible for orchestrating behavior and problem solving.
Is this an ideal idea or is this a bad idea?
Dr. By the way, the insula’s message is You’ll never do that again! You will have a visceral, gut, sometimes guilt feeling. She had the examiners ask one simple question after almost any example. Now pay attention please. Insula ~ Is deep inside the brain and is responsible for one trial learning. So that’s this location of the brain that will retain sense, gut memories of food poisoning for instance. That’s interesting right? Another example is if you stole something as a child and were incapacitated by guilt until you confessed. Even day you can feel that sick feeling. Now look. Here’s where it gets fun.
You’ve avoided that specific food, manner of cooking or restaurant for quite a bit of your life, I’d say if you’ve ever had bad food poisoning even thinking about the event can make you feel sick and chances are good. Baird conducted a straightforward study using adults in one group and teens in another test group. Adults answered without hesitation that it was a bad idea on all questions regarding danger. We’ve got the results. Teens, however, had a significant delay in answering that it was a bad idea on the questions that offered danger. You have the idea of the line of questioning. It can make the difference in real lifespan between dead and alive, even when it was only a matter of seconds. Considering the above said. They had no alarm system! Additionally, brain scans showed that the teen’s brains showed uncoordinated frontal lobe activity and standpoint we all had that intuition or gut feeling of things.
I know that the friend asked my client to simply sell the bag full of pills to the students on a list that he provided. My client did just that, got caught and was suspended for the semester to an alternative school. This is where it starts getting really interesting, right? In one of my counseling sessions a 17 year old teen I’ll call Matt had a friend who brought a baggie of drugs to school. Needless to say, matt still didn’t think it was a big deal and mainly felt bad as he couldn’t go back to his school. No, By the way I didn’t think I’d be caught. No, not really. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. I asked if he thought about being caught. While feeling this was wrong, I inquired in as many directions as I could for about 5 minutes about any internal warning signs, thought of consequences.
While feeling that this could have been a mistake, in family counseling I asked if he had any warning signs, gut reaction. I just figured that my friend knew these people and it was no big deal, Matt replied. His parents thought they’d raised a child without a conscience. I reassured them that the frontal lobe orchestration should mature, since I know a few things about brain development. Keep reading! From a neuroscience point we can say adulthood is when. So here is a question. When is adulthood?
