Scientists discover part of brain that calculates the intentions of others

Scientists believe they have discovered the neuronal basis in the brain for the “cornerstone of successful social interchange” - the ability to anticipate each other’s intentions or actions - after mapping the brain signals of male Rhesus monkeys during games that test social anticipation and cooperation. 

The researchers say that understanding the nerve basis of cooperative social interactions “paves the way for the targeted treatment of social behavioral disorders such as autism spectrum disorders.”

Dr. Keren Haroush - lead author of the study published in the journal Cell - explains: “Many conflicts or adversarial interactions arise from an inability to accurately read another’s intentions or hidden state of mind.”

“Therefore,” adds Dr. Haroush, a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts General Hospital-Harvard Medical School Center for Nervous System Repair, “understanding where and how these computations are performed within the brain may help us better understand how such complex social interactions occur.”

Disney’s Ladies

This is a collage of all of the female characters in chronological order in all Disney Films (excluding Studio Ghibli).

Note: I included all human-esque characters so no talking animals. If the character is an animal but acts and talks like a human (Maid Marrion), I included them. But I didn’t include female animals that act like animals but can talk. This is a collage of just Disney’s ladies and not animals. I’m hoping I didn’t forget any characters but that is possible. I grouped some characters if it was easier and if it was hard to find pictures of them separated. Also, I wrote all the movies that were included in that picture as a caption if you’re wondering.

APPARATI "Nel precedente lavoro "APPARTENENZE" l’intento è documentare l’evidente. Una registrazione visiva e oggettiva, priva di ogni interpretazione, di persone che condividono un territorio, un luogo. Credo che la fotografia debba essere poesia e che la poesia debba suggerire il mistero. Molte sono le definizioni di mistero e tutte hanno a che vedere con la nozione del nascosto, del segreto. Per Heidegger il mistero è inerente all’essenza della verità. In questo lavoro “APPARATI” dove la rappresentazione oggettiva di organi (lingua, cuore, occhi….)  è palese, anziché limitarsi a rivelare ciò che in natura è nascosto, ne evoca il mistero, Il mistero dell’ordinario che pone nuovi interrogativi.” APPARATI [APPARATUS] "In my previous work "APPARTENENZE"  my intent was documenting obviousness.  A visual and objective entry,  devoid of any interpretation,  of people who share an habitat, a place.  I believe that photography should be poetry  and that poetry should suggest mystery.  There are many explanations of mystery and they all have to do with the concept of hidden, of secret.  According to Heidegger, mystery is about truth’s essence.  In this work “APPARATI”  where the objective representation of organs  (tongue, heart, eyes…)    is clear, rather than merely revealing what in nature  is hidden, it evokes mystery,  the mystery of the ordinary that raises new questions.”
