Welcome to the brainy group on solworld-ning

Interested in brains, neuroscience, evolution and what science can bring to SF and what SF can bring to neuroscience? You come to the right place. Already there is lots of things I've found that are relevant for SF. How about: future memory, mirror neurons, the relationship between emotions and thinking/behavior, how stress makes us not think in terms of possibilities and future, how stress makes our brain scan for problems... the list goes on.

If you are as curious as me.... this is the place

Michael, you might have seem this one before.
Jill Bolte Taylor: My stroke of insight...

It illustrates dramatically the two sides of the brain and a how SF might work in both. Lots of other videos on the brain on TED. Alan.

Hi Michael and all
And thanks for setting up the group. For the last 5 days, Cheltenham (where I live) has been holding its nnual Science Festival. This has been a great treat with a galaxy of stars of the scientific community, including neuroscientists, cosmologists, Darwinists, psychologists (2 gigs with Steven Pinker yesterday), Artificial Intelligence experts .... My mind (brian? mouth?) is still buzzing.

Thanks for the invitation, Michael! Reminds me of my special connection to nerves and brains: In fact, I wrote my (biology) diploma thesis about some aspect of pattern formation and developmental neurobiology (to be more specific: about a growth factor called "Hydra head acivator" - isn't that a promising name? ...;-)

Unfortunately, since then that quote from that postcard mostly applies: "Nothing right in my left brain, nothing left in my right brain" ...

Cheers anyway,

Thanks for opening this group. I have used the invitation to join as a perfect excuse to write a blog about a topic which currently fascinates me: Brain plasticity - the impact of consciously focusing our attention...
Of course I'd be interested in your thoughts on what this means for SF practice.

My son (5 years old) this morning asked me to look for some money he had misplaced. I asked him "but did you really have 3 gold coins?". He answered "Mommy just help me look for the things I want to find"
So, another lesson learned - don´t look for the thing you lost. look for the things you want to find. ;-)
(I also loved the video michael )
best regards/Caroline

Jumpstart into Solution Focus

You want to learn more about "Solution Focus"?

You prefer a "step by step" introduction instead to start with reading some
voluminous books?

You would appreciate to have a complete "helicopter view" on SF after the first step…
