How your brain sees your body: Meet the cortical homunculus | Āgenskalna privātklīnika

SOURCE: http://www.similia.lv/interesting/how-your-brain-sees-your-body/?lang=en

"We all know what bodies look like from the outside. This cortical homunculus is how your brain sees your body from the inside.

In the 1930s, Wilder Penfield performed surgeries on patients with epilepsy. While he had a live brain on the table, he figured he might as well poke around a bit. The doctor gathered data, finding out which parts of the cerebral cortex control which voluntary body functions and feeling. What he discovered was a vastly distorted view of the human body: the cortical homunculus."

The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon

SOURCE: https://www.damninteresting.com/the-baader-meinhof-phenomenon/

" Our brains are fantastic pattern recognition engines, a characteristic which is highly useful for learning, but it does cause the brain to lend excessive importance to unremarkable events. Considering how many words, names, and ideas a person is exposed to in any given day, it is unsurprising that we sometimes encounter the same information again within a short time. When that occasional intersection occurs, the brain promotes the information because the two instances make up the beginnings of a sequence. What we fail to notice is the hundreds or thousands of pieces of information which aren’t repeated, because they do not conform to an interesting pattern. "

Concept art for a work in progress: When I take on a new assignment I often begin by generating concept art in a variety of different styles until I settle on a style that fits. Although this particular style will not be used in the final product i expect I shall find a use for it in time. Nothing I create goes to waste.

Virus

"Virus" circa 2002 : Inspired by a paragraph I read in an old Time Life book (The Cell) explaining the basic attack mechanism of a virus. The quote below is not the original text that inspired the animation but the essence of it is close enough:

"Viruses that attack bacteria were named 'bacteriophages'. The term phage originates from Greek phagein, which translates as 'to eat'. The phage infection cycle seems to be simple but extremely efficient: a single phage injects its genome into a bacterial cell, switching the cells' programme in its favour so the host cell will eventually die and release about 100 new phage particles.1 "

reptilian-lizard brain emotions

SOURCE: http://www.myshrink.com/counseling-theory.php?t_id=86

The reptilian brain controls much more of our behavior than we realize. Use the power of the reptilian brain to optimize your counseling. "The reptilian-lizard brain is an ancient beast. It was developed over 100 million years ago. The higher brain or the neocortex came along a mere 40,000 years ago. So, when the reptilian brain is on alert, it's pretty hard for a youngster like our neocortex to tell a 100 million year old brain to behave!2"

Triune brain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

SOURCE: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triune_brain

"The triune brain consists of the reptilian complex, the paleomammalian complex (limbic system), and the neomammalian complex (neocortex), viewed as structures sequentially added to the forebrain in the course of evolution. However, this hypothesis is no longer espoused by the majority of comparative neuroscientists in the post-2000 era."

How to By-Pass Your Reptilian Brain and Restore Your Creative Power  Collective Evolution

SOURCE: http://www.collective-evolution.com/2013/06/16/how-to-by-pass-your-reptilian-brain-and-restore-your-creative-power/

"A few things to consider: the vast majority of advertising campaigns, media content and political propaganda these days are targeting the reptilian response section of the brain in the masses, hence creating a de-evolution of a collectively manifested reality... It goes a little something like this. (*Hypothetical situation*) You are walking through the mall and a billboard with a sexually attractive model promoting whatever product ‘catches’ (*triggers*) your attention, and it’s on ‘sale!’ You instantly feel distracted, compelled to break stride, walk in and consider purchasing this product. That is how that scenario usually goes…"

SOURCE: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2015/06/150601122445.htm

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The discovery could have profound implications for diseases from autism to Alzheimer's to multiple sclerosis.

an old internet game i played:
1 - go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random . The title of the page is the name of your band.
2 - go to: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random again. In the second sentence find the name of your album.
3 - go to: https://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/ third row down, third photo over is your album cover.

The above was my result.

How Your Brain Works And How To Train It

SOURCE: http://www.lifehack.org/288159/infographic-tell-you-how-your-brain-works-and-how-train

An infographic to explain the function of the brain and how you can manipulate it to your advantage. For a long time our brains have always been thought of as machines capable of amazing feats but only as strong as the hardware given. Recent studies, however, have suggested that our brains are more like plastic, able to be shaped, formed and molded over time by giving direct attention and focus to learning new things.

Woodblocks for modern children

A while back I made a series of illustrations that were preliminary sketches for a series of modern children's blocks. The originals were black and white woodcuts (10x10 pine boards) but have since been scanned and colored.
