While the fleeting happiness we get from an ice cream cone or a gorgeous sunset is great, if we want to be happy in the long term, we need to strive for a life infused with a sense of purpose and meaning. Easy to say, sure. But how do we get there?

Despite the broad oversimplifications and misinformation of the 1970’s left - brain right brain thinking craze-- I.e. the left side of the brain is for language and logic, and the right side of the brain is for creativity and imagination-- there are significant differences between the right and l...

The Psychological and Neuroscientific musings of @sandygautam
Introduction

The Mouse Trap blog  is an effort of Sandeep Gautam (sandygautam on most social web services) to learn, and at the same time document his journey, and share his knowledge, of psychology and neuroscience, with like-minded folks – a rider is in place at this point: He is primarily a software professional (a computer science major), as such, all his musings need to be taken with a pinch of salt.

Sandeep Gautam

Sandeep Gautam has developed expertise in positive psychology and the emotional/ motivational subsystems the hard way- by putting in close to 10000 hrs of self-study. While his day job requires him to lead and manage software development teams in a networking and telecommunications giant; he moonlights as a psychology and neuroscience blogger at The Mouse Trap and at the Psychology Today blog The Fundamental Four. He also blogs at The Creativity Post and his blog for The Times Of India is called Mind Cafe.

Besides being a poet and a philosopher, he is also passionate about positive psychology and has tried his hands at ventures both related to software and positive psychology application in school settings.

A perpetual learner, and believer in the growth mind-set (and a Free Will proponent), he has developed expertise by reading up extensively on psychology and neuroscience literature and believes its just the start of his journey.

His interest areas span from Affective, Motivational and Personality research; to developmental and evolutionary unfolding of stages in a pre-determined order; to conceiving autism and psychosis as opposed on a continuum spectrum; to interest in creativity, genius , positive psychology and its application in school/ work settings.

He is also an author of a work of psychological fiction “The Sculptor and the Sandman” and will like to write a non-fiction psychology book too in the near future.
