The crimes against dopamine – The Spike – Medium Dopamine: fast and slow. Error and motivation. These correspond to two different ways dopamine is released. (A couple of things to get out of the way. How is that precise, short, large spike an error signal? Say I asked you to turn up at my house at 3 o’clock so I could you give you a chocolate biscuit. What if, when you turned up at 3 o’clock, I didn’t give you that chocolate biscuit? This is what fast dopamine does: it signals the error between what you predicted and what you got. It is not reward.
No. 25 ... "Pretty Boy," Young Galaxy | The 25 Best Songs of 2013 (The Entire Year) Here's Why People Love Deep Bass Sounds In Music Why do music lovers like it so much when the beat drops? Scientists may now have an answer. A new study from Canada's McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind investigated how the brain reacts to low- and high-pitched tones in order to explain how humans detect rhythm -- and it's much easier for us to follow deep bass sounds. "There is a physiological basis for why we create music the way we do," study co-author Dr. Laurel Trainor, a neuroscientist and director of the institute, told LiveScience. Songs typically feature high-pitched melodies with deeper bass lines. (Story continues below) McMaster student Kristin Tonus tries on sensors at the McMaster Institute for Music and the Mind. In the study, Trainor and her colleagues monitored electrical activity in the brains of 35 people. Then the researchers asked another group of men and women to tap their fingers to the rhythm of the same tonal sequences.
Gadgetsin |Browse Our Selection of Geek Gadgets article on the Solfeggio Frequencies and David Hulse's Journey A Little History At the turn of the century the awareness of DNA entered the collective consciousness of the world. We have incarnated into this human experience as divine beings with a blueprint, a set of instructions. Carl Sagan writes that most of our genetic information (about 97%) is unused DNA. In the old paradigm of religion, "potential" remained a mystery to the human mind, therefore we coined a mystical term called "SPIRIT." The old paradigm and its premise stated that we began as biology in the womb of our mothers. Being a student of "A Course In Miracles" in the late 80’s, I was faced with a dichotomy in the idea that we are not a body. As we move from genetics and concepts like Soul, "Soul Mates" and "Soul work," we move beyond physical diagnosis, into a new field of quantum physics. Repairing DNA I was first introduced to DNA in 1988 when I was going through a transitional period, during which I felt that I had come to the end of everything that I believed. When Dr.
Chasing Dopamine: Porn, Social Media, and Alcohol What really fuels the economy? It’s not trade, free spending, or good old-fashioned elbow grease – it’s something much smaller and harder to see: dopamine. Along with high-performance expert Jamie Wheal, Steven Kotler has spent the last four years interviewing and researching trailblazers like Elon Musk, Eric Schmidt, Amy Cuddy, and institutions like Nike's innovation team, the Navy SEALs, and the United Nations' Headquarters. What did he find?
stereomood - emotional internet radio - music for my mood and activities Illusion An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. Though illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people. Illusions may occur with any of the human senses, but visual illusions (optical illusions), are the most well-known and understood. The emphasis on visual illusions occurs because vision often dominates the other senses. For example, individuals watching a ventriloquist will perceive the voice is coming from the dummy since they are able to see the dummy mouth the words. Some illusions are based on general assumptions the brain makes during perception. The term illusion refers to a specific form of sensory distortion. Mimes are known for a repertoire of illusions that are created by physical means. Optical illusions An optical illusion is characterized by visually perceived images that are deceptive or misleading. Auditory illusions Tactile illusions Other senses
DrawCrowd "Plane Wreck At Los Gatos" lyrics by Woody Guthrie Plane Wreck at Los Gatos (also known as "Deportee") Words by Woody Guthrie, Music by Martin Hoffman The crops are all in and the peaches are rott'ning, The oranges piled in their creosote dumps; They're flying 'em back to the Mexican border To pay all their money to wade back again Goodbye to my Juan, goodbye, Rosalita, Adios mis amigos, Jesus y Maria; You won't have your names when you ride the big airplane, All they will call you will be "deportees" My father's own father, he waded that river, They took all the money he made in his life; My brothers and sisters come working the fruit trees, And they rode the truck till they took down and died. Some of us are illegal, and some are not wanted, Our work contract's out and we have to move on; Six hundred miles to that Mexican border, They chase us like outlaws, like rustlers, like thieves. We died in your hills, we died in your deserts, We died in your valleys and died on your plains. Is this the best way we can grow our big orchards?
¿Cómo imaginaban los soviéticos de 1960 el año 2017, el centenario de la Revolución Rusa? - BBC Mundo Derechos de autor de la imagen Archivo de Sergey Pozdnyakov ¿Cómo sería hoy el mundo si la Unión Soviética no sólo existiera todavía, sino que también hubiera propagado el comunismo por todo el planeta? En 1960 se publicó en el bloque soviético "En 2017", un relato que se desarrolla en ese año, a pocos días del centenario de la Revolución Rusa o la "Gran Revolución de Octubre". En este escenario imaginario, la Unión de Repúblicas Socialistas Soviéticas (URSS) no se ha desintegrado -como sucedió realmente en 1991-, sino que es más poderosa que nunca. Los soviéticos del futuro han construido, por ejemplo, trenes que cruzan el estrecho de Bering y han creado una represa capaz de detener las corrientes frías del Ártico. El relato, escrito por V. En enero de este año, "En 2017" volvió a difundirse por internet después de que el ciudadano ruso Sergei Pozdnyakov compartiera las 44 diapositivas en su cuenta de VK (red social rusa comparable a Facebook). Aquí compartimos 10 de estas piezas. "En 2017"
