Now You See It: How the Brain Science of Attention Will Change the Way We Live, Work, and Learn

A electronic innovator exhibits how we will thrive within the new technological age.

When Cathy Davidson and Duke college gave loose iPods to the freshman classification in 2003, critics acknowledged they have been losing their cash. but whilst scholars in virtually each self-discipline invented educational makes use of for his or her track gamers, without warning the assumption can be obvious in a brand new light-as an cutting edge technique to flip studying on its head.

This radical test is on the center of Davidson's inspiring new publication. utilizing state of the art examine at the mind, she indicates how "attention blindness" has produced one in every of our society's maximum demanding situations: whereas we've all stated the good alterations of the electronic age, so much people nonetheless toil in faculties and offices designed for the final century. Davidson introduces us to visionaries whose groundbreaking ideas-from faculties with curriculums outfitted round games to businesses that teach staff utilizing digital environments-will open the doorways to new methods of operating and studying. a full of life hybrid of Thomas Friedman and Norman Doidge, Now you spot it's a refreshingly positive argument for a daring include of our hooked up, collaborative destiny.

Another View of the Brain System

Our clever existence deeply depends upon the hugely developed anxious procedure of the mind, and the mind is one in every of most fun subject matters in technology. The authors have studied the regulate mechanism of the principal apprehensive process in masticatory routine utilizing electromyograms (EMG), electroencephalograms (EEG), and magnetoencephalograms (MEG).

The Pleasure Center: Trust Your Animal Instincts

Many of us think that excitement and hope are stumbling blocks to moderate and clever habit. within the excitement heart, Morten Kringelbach finds that what we wish, what pleases us--in truth, our such a lot base, animalistic tendencies--are really vitally important resources of knowledge. They inspire us for an excellent cause.

Literature, Neurology, and Neuroscience: Historical and Literary Connections

This well-established foreign sequence examines significant components of simple and medical learn inside neuroscience, in addition to rising and promising subfields. This quantity at the neurosciences, neurology, and literature vividly indicates how technological know-how and the arts can come jointly --- and feature come jointly long ago.
