The midterm next week is going to rape the shit out of me.
Any time anyone asks me what’s the difference between cognitive and behavioral, I just <shrug> However, I still think cognitive is the coolest what wit the brains n the eeg n the things
I agree- the methodologies, such as EEG, are really quite cool. But overall the way the go about using these methods are quite confusing and mundane. I think we should invest our resources into other areas of neuroscience aimed at explaining the brain more biologically to then explain the behavior, rather than using the behavior from cognitive processes to explain the brain as a whole. However I have to admit, cognitive neuroscience has great significance in the clinical world when it comes to actually treating patients with various disorders and issues!
“Studies show that a 20-second hug raises oxytocin levels. Oxytocin is also known as the “cuddle hormone” and facilitates a sense of love and connection, especially in women. Most couples don’t take the time to hug at all, much less for 20 seconds.”—(via wedreamoficecream)
