By studying the injuries and aptitudes of Vietnam War veterans who suffered penetrating head wounds during the war, scientists are tackling — and beginning to answer — longstanding questions about how the brain works.
The researchers found that brain regions that contribute to optimal social functioning also are vital to general intelligence and to emotional intelligence. This finding bolsters the view that general intelligence emerges from the emotional and social context of one’s life.
The findings are reported in the journal Brain.
“We are trying to understand the nature of general intelligence and to what extent our intellectual abilities are grounded in social cognitive abilities,” said Aron Barbey, a University of Illinois professor of neuroscience, of psychology, and of speech and hearing science. Barbey (bar-BAY), an affiliate of the Beckman Institute and of the Institute for Genomic Biology at the U. of I., led the new study with an international team of collaborators.
Studies in social psychology indicate that human intellectual functions originate from the social context of everyday life, Barbey said.
“We depend at an early stage of our development on social relationships — those who love us care for us when we would otherwise be helpless,” he said.
Social interdependence continues into adulthood and remains important throughout the lifespan, Barbey said.
“Our friends and family tell us when we could make bad mistakes and sometimes rescue us when we do,” he said. “And so the idea is that the ability to establish social relationships and to navigate the social world is not secondary to a more general cognitive capacity for intellectual function, but that it may be the other way around. Intelligence may originate from the central role of relationships in human life and therefore may be tied to social and emotional capacities.”
The study involved 144 Vietnam veterans injured by shrapnel or bullets that penetrated the skull, damaging distinct brain tissues while leaving neighboring tissues intact. Using CT scans, the scientists painstakingly mapped the affected brain regions of each participant, then pooled the data to build a collective map of the brain.
The researchers used a battery of carefully designed tests to assess participants’ intellectual, emotional and social capabilities. They then looked for patterns that tied damage to specific brain regions to deficits in the participants’ ability to navigate the intellectual, emotional or social realms. Social problem solving in this analysis primarily involved conflict resolution with friends, family and peers at work.
As in their earlier studies of general intelligence and emotional intelligence, the researchers found that regions of the frontal cortex (at the front of the brain), the parietal cortex (further back near the top of the head) and the temporal lobes (on the sides of the head behind the ears) are all implicated in social problem solving. The regions that contributed to social functioning in the parietal and temporal lobes were located only in the brain’s left hemisphere, while both left and right frontal lobes were involved.
The brain networks found to be important to social adeptness were not identical to those that contribute to general intelligence or emotional intelligence, but there was significant overlap, Barbey said.
“The evidence suggests that there’s an integrated information-processing architecture in the brain, that social problem solving depends upon mechanisms that are engaged for general intelligence and emotional intelligence,” he said. “This is consistent with the idea that intelligence depends to a large extent on social and emotional abilities, and we should think about intelligence in an integrated fashion rather than making a clear distinction between cognition and emotion and social processing. This makes sense because our lives are fundamentally social — we direct most of our efforts to understanding others and resolving social conflict. And our study suggests that the architecture of intelligence in the brain may be fundamentally social, too.”
"Rather has been a caution … Yes, caution and decide, but I also see it in prints that I have two years I will not expose ago, clearly recorded generated picture, because the last series of prints I made shares the subject line of my painting, are linked, fully twinned, but exhibit a backward and incoherent … I did not like because I finished this series and do not want to start a new, now having two series already obsolete in my workshop , nor do I care because I show it, then you have to be very careful in this regard …
"Porcine and pink world of consumption" which is the title of the document accompanying the work, you will surely end up calling very similar, originates from having a friend in the engraving workshop in the last year is called the career … and the best ideas always come in a fun … always said I looked like a pink pig, my skin color, and I wanted to bring these similarities to a visual language, so I started a series in which he played with the elements the supermarket, as the cutting of ham, you see something like ham, which is a compact object with a very small weight and bring it to the shape of the head, which is very compact and des membrane ideas, then put a cutting ham and my head, I found something fun and throws you to other information, concepts, was a series of monumental engraving, and when I had to do a thesis, I realized I needed another language because engraving has to be very graphic, if you try to explore other resources loses strength, and these images need color, skin and blood was coloring it without color, is incomplete, so I did a series of 13 pieces, some polyptychs and other whole pieces painting, creating a striped to be much clearer dialogue in every idea. The basic concept is to show as meat …
- All are self-portraits
Yes, they are all self-portraits, and at first I root to use pink, but I realized that the language gives you for more, he did not need that immediacy, not need to be chromatically unified, and the idea is how the material thing gives you cultural elements, such as things that human intervenes give information of how a group of people live, I found very interesting, to say, the provision of market as white but full of dead bodies, how people want to give an appearance at your local, as something that is not assimilated is flesh of a dead animal you’re going to swallow, but the place is white, he is clean, has to do with hygiene but also with something like innocence. So is the use of the flesh color, but taking cultural, social, religious figures, such as crosses, angels. I wanted to give a cultural twist, as in the triptych symbolizes the feminine side of the meat, which are 3 aspects I saw that catalog as qualities of women in the culture, one’s sexuality, submission and motherhood … the three involve meat, three involve transgression, there are elements that enter and leave the body which implies a kind of violation of privacy, then all that has to do with things that have no conceptual load, has an emotional sense, but man looks for in art is equal, we seek certain events that may not have all the burden, as eternity or banality, or if it breaks down like meat but I want you to understand something more in equities.
The problem is that the series has so many intertwined ideas, which becomes confusing, and you realize in document theory behind it, because I use theories of consumption to give the idea of society, and so have some religiosity and death mixed with other items, the company is the flesh, the self-portrait .. All that. “
do you ever feel like there’s just so many pretty girls but most dudes are just subpar like there are radiant goddesses everywhere and just piles and piles of guys in backwards baseball caps and sandals
it’s called makeup
you can put eyeliner on a frat boy that doesn’t change the fact that’s he’s wearing a neon muscle shirt and nike flip flops
So uh, I haven’t seen this on my dash, but check out this kickstarter!
They’re waterballoons that SELF TIE, make a HUNDRED at a time, AND AND they’re biodegradablee!! Seriously why isn’t this all over my dash yet??
They’ve already reached WAY over their goal, but you can still get some early bird deliveries for an early start of the water balloon madness!
This is too much power for one man. Who knows what horrors awaits us in the future if this comes into fruition?
I want twenty.
"Why do you want this job?"
Because under capitalism I am forced to sell my labor in order to subsist.
Magpie birds mourn the passing of their loved ones through rituals similar to funerals. Some have been viewed laying ‘wreaths’ of grass alongside roadside corpses.
