I was listening to the Brain Science podcast today. Dr Ginger was interviewing Daniel H. Lende and Greg Downey, co-authors of The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology.  Here's the bit I kept playing over and over:

"One of the most interesting things, for example, is
the way that our standards in the West, of emotional expression, are changing, and have changed from our grandparents' and great grandparents' generations to ours."

"The way people talk about things, for example. I think people have the impression that they're becoming more authentic or truer. But you could also see it as we're developing new kinds of skills that our grandparents and great grandparents didn't have—certain kinds of abilities to express. And that's going to change the actual experience of those emotions. So, we're actually changing the emotional landscape—not just outside us in culture, but also inside us in how we experience those emotions."

--Dr Greg Downey, episode #97 of the Brain Science podcast with Dr. Ginger Campbell 05/24/2013

As Dr Ginger puts it, "What we think about how we think influences how our brain works."

Someone reblogged this from me recently and I'm reminded all over again of the brilliance that is Sir Digby Chicken Caesar.

Join Sir Digby Chicken Caesar (drunken, drug-addled tramp or intrepid secret agent?) and his trusty companion, Ginger, as they attempt to uncover the evil-doings of Sir Digby’s nemesis, ”some bastard who is presumably responsible”.

I alone feel this torment. The white idiot writhes on his chair, begging for cheeseburgers. I’m surrounded by morons.

My thumbs are not opposable. Yet I oppose everything.
