I attended a conference called the Brain Institute in Albuquerque.
I’ve condensed her information so that Undoubtedly it’s enjoyable and understandable.
Abigail Baird Ph. Vassar College where she is Assistant Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Adolescent Studies in the Department of Psychology. Needless to say. Actually. Baird was among the keynote speakers. Considering the above said. Really is fascinating if you will follow along, therefore 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. So 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.
Insula ~ Is deep inside the brain and is responsible for one trial learning.
Here’s where it gets fun.
The actual question is. Is this a perfect idea or is this a bad idea? She had the examiners ask one simple question after any example. Furthermore, you will have a visceral, gut, sometimes guilt feeling. Insula’s message is You’ll never do that again! You’ve avoided that specific food, manner of cooking or restaurant for most of your life, if you’ve ever had bad food poisoning even thinking about the event can make you feel sick and chances are good. So that’s this location of the brain that will retain sense, gut memories of food poisoning for instance.
Baird conducted very simple study using adults in one group and teens in another test group.
Even day you can feel that sick feeling. Oftentimes another example is if you stole something as a child and were incapacitated by guilt until you confessed. It can make the difference in real lifetime between dead and alive, even if it was only a matter of seconds. There’re the results. Nevertheless, you have the idea of the line of questioning. Teens, however, had a significant delay in answering that it was a bad idea on the questions that offered danger. Adults answered without hesitation that it was a bad idea on all questions regarding danger. Additionally, brain scans showed that the teen’s brains showed uncoordinated frontal lobe activity and friend asked my client to simply sell the bag full of pills to the students on a list that he provided. My experience has verified this. I assumed from a spiritual outlook we all had that intuition or gut anticipation of things. Make sure you scratch some comments about it. 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.
My client did just that, got caught and was suspended for the semester to an alternative school.
No, By the way I didn’t think I’d be caught.
I just figured that my friend knew these people and it was no big deal, Matt replied. Normally, no, not really. I asked if he thought about being caught. Now regarding the aforementioned fact… Whenever feeling that this gonna be a mistake, in family counseling I asked if he had any warning signs, gut reaction. Essentially, matt still didn’t think it was a big deal and mainly felt bad since he couldn’t go back to his school.
