As an educator, I am interesting in learning and experiences. I am interested in behavior and identity. I like to read about why and how we do things.
One of the latest areas of reading has to do with the neuroscience of these things that I’m interested in. I have written a few posts about neuroscience of Internet use and Music and Dopamine. There is so much we don’t know about the brain. We are interested in changing behavior and making things better in our lives. If we can change things in our lives, we might be able to improve our lives.
But no matter what you want to do, it’s important to understand the neuroscience of what it is that you want to do. There are neurological implications of every action and experience. Actually, implications infer that it happens later – which would be true, but the neuroscience also sets it up.
Why don’t you start with this TED talk by Dr. Daniel Siegel. He understands it and explains it way better than I could.
