#ImmordinoYang: Conducting social lives in short bursts (texting) reduces weight students put on moral and ethical issues. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang: The overlapping area for other-feelings is active during internal reflection, but suppressed with outward action. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang: Appreciating other’s *mental* circumstances uses a different brain area. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang: Appreciating other’s physical circumstances uses same brain areas that monitor internal physiology. #FOL2012

After last session, Helen #ImmordinoYang stated: “Consciousness is ‘built’ by the brain.” I have to respectfully disagree, philosophically.

via web

#ImmordinoYang - The mind is what the brain does. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang - Human survival has moved from biological to social and cultural survival, because they use same neural systems. #FOL2012

#ImmordinoYang - The insula is active in feeling nausea *as well as* feeling inspired, compassionate. “Feeling it in the gut.” #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang - To understand what it means to have a self, to have emotion in a social context, is to understand learning. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang - Feeling emotions about other’s stories actually engages brain areas related to sensing one’s body, one’s self. #FOL2012

#ImmordinoYang: Internalizing inspiring stories (and feeling empathy/compassion) is an expansion of what we do as infants. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang: At first, infants can’t even move, but they begin seeing the people around them and internalizing their behavior. #FOL2012

#ImmordinoYang: The fundamental organizing dimension of our minds (from birth): internalizing mental tools of the people around us. #FOL2012

#ImmordinoYang: How do we encourage the development of high-level awareness? We co-opt the same neural systems that keep us alive. #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang: What happens in our brains when we hear another person’s story and feel inspiration and admiration? #FOL2012

via web

#ImmordinoYang: The brain is not a separate thing “you come into the room with.” It is situated in its social and cultural world. #FOL2012

#DavidRose. Instead of “learning disabilities,” we need to focus on “educating disabilities.” #FOL2012

#HowardGardner: We didn’t evolve to read; that’s really new. Parts of our brains were hijacked for new cognitive skills. #FOL2012

#DavidRose: Neuroscience research shows there are *far* more parts to learning than thought. Support the whole, assist the parts. #FOL2012

#DavidRose - Text-to-speech isn’t a crutch, it actually helps. Start with engagement, *then* move to “decoding:” spelling, grammar. #FOL2012
