Brain Storm: The Organic Origins of Conflict
Our brain is more than just an organ. It is a huge network of billions of pulsating neurons which do not operate in isolation. Joining forces with other disciplines and specialties, neuroscience bridges the gap from an individual cell’s behavior to social conflict. Our mutual journey starts with the cutting-edge research of neuroscience from molecular to social. We will explore how our brain “storms”, how the different structures of the brain are interconnected and how they relate to other parts of our body. We will examine this process in a conflict situation to analyze what impact it has on the way we feel, think and act. With humor and short stories we will focus on how this findings can substantially support your daily practice.
