    • The phenomenology of the cognitive functions
    • 02-20-2017
    • Alright lets try using descriptive phenomenology on the cognitive functions and see where end up.


      Thinking
      Experiencing objects happening linearly, mechanistically, predetermined or deterministic sequentially. Void of rational (as in self-control) or voluntaristic elements, void of sentient qualities.

    • Why communication is about consciousness objects
    • 01-03-2017
    • Communication is about sending and receiving messages containing consciousness objects, but this does not mean that messages fully correspond to the conscious objects of the sender or the receiver or that the sender and receivers conscious objects are fully the same.

      This is because messages might fail to fully capture the consciousness objects in two ways:

      The message might fail to capture the intended consciousness objects according to the sender. It could be a ba..

    • Methodologies of personality enquiry
    • 12-05-2016
    • Oh yes, so another dialectical post trying to iron out the conceptual confusion embedded in the field of personality.

      Example methodologies
      Here comes a list of example methodologies one can use to make personality science:

      Folk-psychological

      Discover an essence of personality you consider useful Articulate under what conditions this essence manifests itself: * Is it limited to certain categories of individuals, i.e. europeans
      * Is it li..

    • Neural correlates of maintaining one’s political beliefs in the face of counterevidence
    • People often discount evidence that contradicts their firmly held beliefs. However, little is known about the neural mechanisms that govern this behavior. We used neuroimaging to investigate the neural systems involved in maintaining belief in the face of counterevidence, presenting 40 liberals with arguments that contradicted their strongly held political and non-political views. Challenges to political beliefs produced increased activity in the default mode network—a set of interconnec..

    • Oxytocin improves synchronisation in leader-follower interaction
    • The neuropeptide oxytocin has been shown to affect social interaction. Meanwhile, the underlying mechanism remains highly debated. Using an interpersonal finger-tapping paradigm, we investigated whether oxytocin affects the ability to synchronise with and adapt to the behaviour of others. Dyads received either oxytocin or a non-active placebo, intranasally. We show that in conditions where one dyad-member was tapping to another unresponsive dyad-member – i.e. one was following another wh..

    • Variation in the oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR) is associated with differences in moral judgment
    • Moral judgments are produced through the coordinated interaction of multiple neural systems, each of which relies on a characteristic set of neurotransmitters. Genes that produce or regulate these neurotransmitters may have distinctive influences on moral judgment. Two studies examined potential genetic influences on moral judgment using dilemmas that reliably elicit competing automatic and controlled responses, generated by dissociable neural systems. Study 1 (N = 228) examined 49 common vari..

    • The Descending Diencephalic Dopamine System Is Tuned to Sensory Stimuli
    • The vertebrate diencephalic A11 system provides the sole dopaminergic innervation of hindbrain and spinal cord and has been implicated in modulation of locomotion and sensory processes. However, the exact contributions of sensory stimuli and motor behavior to A11 dopaminergic activity remain unclear. We recorded cellular calcium activity in four anatomically distinct posterior tubercular A11-type dopaminergic subgroups and two adjacent hypothalamic dopaminergic groups in GCaMP7a-transgenic, se..

    • Effects of oxytocin administration on spirituality and emotional responses to meditation
    • The oxytocin (OT) system, critically involved in social bonding, may also impinge on spirituality, which is the belief in a meaningful life imbued with a sense of connection to a Higher Power and/or the world. Midlife male participants (N = 83) were randomly assigned to receive intranasal OT or placebo. In exploratory analyses, participants were also genotyped for polymorphisms in two genes critical for OT signaling, the oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR rs53576) and CD38 (rs6..

    • The matter of motivation: Striatal resting-state connectivity is dissociable between grit and growth mindset
    • The current study utilized resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to examine how two important non-cognitive skills, grit and growth mindset, are associated with cortico-striatal networks important for learning. Whole-brain seed-to-voxel connectivity was examined for dorsal and ventral striatal seeds. While both grit and growth mindset were associated with functional connectivity between ventral striatal and bilateral prefrontal networks thought to be important for cognitiv..
