I attended a conference called the Brain Institute in Albuquerque.
Baird was the keynote speakers. I’ve condensed her information so that So it’s enjoyable and understandable. Vassar College where she is Assistant Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Adolescent Studies in the Department of Psychology. Fact, dr. Known abigail Baird Ph. Here we go. Oftentimes really is fascinating if you will follow along, that said, this will be a bit complex. Shall we 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. Dr.
Another example is if you stole something as a child and were incapacitated by guilt until you confessed.
You’ve avoided that specific food, manner of cooking or restaurant for some of your life, So in case you’ve ever had bad food poisoning even thinking about the event can make you feel sick and chances are good.
Insula ~ Is deep inside the brain and is responsible for one trial learning. Here’s where it gets fun. Even day you can feel that sick feeling. So it’s this place of the brain that will retain sense, gut memories of food poisoning as an example. Then the insula’s message is You’ll never do that again! She had the examiners ask one simple question after each example. Baird conducted very simple study using adults in one group and teens in another test group. You will have a visceral, gut, sometimes guilt feeling. Now let me ask you something. Is this an ideal idea or is this a bad idea? It can make the difference in real lifespan between dead and alive, even if it was only a matter of seconds.
Teens, however, had a significant delay in answering that it was a bad idea on the questions that offered danger.
We have the results.
You have the idea of the line of questioning. Adults answered without hesitation that it was a bad idea on all questions regarding danger. Just think for a moment. Additionally, brain scans showed that the teen’s brains showed uncoordinated frontal lobe activity and point we all had that intuition or gut anticipation of things.
Accordingly the friend asked my client to simply sell the bag full of pills to the students on a list that he provided. Normally, 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. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… No, Actually I didn’t think I’d be caught. No, not really. Notice, matt still didn’t think it was a big deal and mainly felt bad since he couldn’t go back to his school. While feeling that this gonna be 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. Ok, and now one of the most important parts. I asked if he thought about being caught. His parents thought they’d raised a child without a conscience. I’m quite sure I reassured them that the frontal lobe orchestration should mature, since I know a few things about brain development.
