Cine: Pollitos en fuga

Por Blas - 27 de Mayo, 2007, 21:20, Categoría: General

Ví la película Pollitos en fuga.

Es de animación, pero con mensaje. El mensaje es: no contrates empleados
pelotudos porque te arruinan.

Recomendaron el diccionario Español de María Molinar/e.

La explicación del bostezo es que hay una disminución de oxígeno y por eso aumenta el ácido láctico.

En el hipo hay un aumento del oxígeno.

Los ataques de pánico se pueden explicar por contracturas musculares que terminan afectando el oído y eso produce los síntomas.

Los tipos de países se pueden caracterizar por tres elementos: uso, concepto y estructura. Argentina es mucho concepto y poco de lo demás.

Menciona el libro El Arte de la Guerra de Sun Tzu.

Como libro de introducción a la Programación Neurolingüística recomienda "Introducción a la PNL" de Seymour O'Connor de Editorial Urano.

El cambio requiere: contexto, creencia y rito.

Insight into Yourself and Others

As you work through this thought-provoking and engaging material, you will learn much about your own behavior, not to mention that of others. One particularly intriguing region of the brain relating to behavior is the frontal cortex, which plays a central role in decision-making, gratification postponement, and other important functions. The frontal cortex is the part of the brain that "makes you do the harder thing," whether it is concentrating on an unwelcome task, keeping anger under control, or telling a white lie about a spouse's new haircut. Consider these cases:

What happens when there is essentially no frontal cortex?: Railroad worker Phineas Gage suffered a massive frontal cortical lesion in a serious accident in the 1840s. Overnight, he changed from a sober, conscientious worker to a profane, aggressive, socially inappropriate man who could never regularly work again. The loss of his frontal cortex meant he lost his emotional regulation; he had no means to do the "harder thing."

What happens when the frontal cortex is "offline"?: During rapid eye movement (REM) sleep, the frontal cortex goes offline, which explains why dreams are often wild and unrepressed—why dreams are dreamlike. People don't dream about balancing a checkbook. They dream about dancing in musicals or floating in the air.

What happens when the frontal cortex is immature?: One of the great myths is that the brain is completely wired up and matured at a very early stage. However, the frontal cortex is not fully functional until an individual is about a quarter-century old—a fact that explains a lot of fraternity behavior, notes Professor Sapolsky. With this in mind, it's worth asking if a 16-year-old violent criminal is not, by definition, organically impaired in frontal cortical function.

Myths that Die Hard

The myth of the fully wired, mature young brain is one of the often-heard pieces of misinformation that this course corrects. Other areas where Professor Sapolsky revises widely held beliefs include:

"For the good of the species": The old notion of group selection has been proven wildly incorrect. This is the idea that animals behave "for the good of the species" and that behaviors are driven by ways to increase the likelihood of the species surviving and multiplying. Evolution is not about animals behaving for the good of the species but, rather, behaving to optimize the number of copies of their own genes to pass on to the next generation.

The inevitability of social structures: Professor Sapolsky's own fieldwork in Africa has shown that an archetypal male-dominated, aggressive society of baboons can change radically to a tradition of low aggression within a single generation. "If these guys are freed from the central casting roles for them in the anthropology textbooks, we as a species have no excuse to say we have inevitable social structures," he says.
