Fright and Flight: Deciding When to Escape

Escaping from a dangerous situation is crucial for survival, but it is also important to only escape from settings that really are dangerous. This is because decisions to escape are almost always trade-offs between safety and access to things of value. For example, animals need to forage, but when they are scared and hiding in their shelter, they are missing out on vital opportunities of finding food and mates.

Have you seen "In Saturn's Rings", yet? Let us know in the comments.

In Saturn’s Rings is a trip through space. Narrated by LeVar Burton, Stephen van Vuuren’s new documentary film uses millions of images of Earth, the Milky Way, and the Moon that were captured by Hubble, Cassini, and other NASA space telescopes to offer a grand tour of the universe. Nathalie Cabrol, SETI Institute Senior Research Scientist and Director of the Carl Sagan Center, along with her husband, Dr. Edmond A. Grin, are co-executive producers of the film.

The Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean road

These amazing pillars scattered along the coastline are a collection of limestone rocks off the shore of the Port Campbell National Park in Australia.

We spend the night here camping, as we drove slowly back from Melbourne along the Great Ocean road, to Adelaide. Such a beautiful drive and definitely one you should take your time doing if you get the opportunity.

Being over seas most of the last 13 years, I haven't really had the opportunity to photograph Australia much, but here's a good start ;-)

How Cognitive Flow fuels Spontaneous Creativity.

"Improvisation appears to take place in an altered state of mind. The inner critic must be shut down, and the inner Picasso turned up."

------------------------------

[ Intensional Improvisation ]

During musical improvisation, in jazz or freestyle rap, studies show a distinctive increase in medial prefrontal cortex activation. The medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) is a brain area known to be involved in intentional, internally generated self-expression and the pursuit of goal-oriented behaviors. This makes sense, since improvised performance requires you to come up with new material in a rapid stream, and deploy it just as quickly for a listening or watching audience.

[ Subverting Surveillance ]

The other aspect to this pattern is a decrease in lateral orbitofrontal cortex and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex activation (DLPFC). The lateral orbitofrontal cortex (OFC) and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex are brain areas involved in conscious self-monitoring, effortful problem solving, focused attention, and evaluation and regulation of goal-directed or planned behaviors. These lateral areas assess whether behaviors conform to social norms, and exert inhibitory control over inappropriate or maladaptive behavior. But as any skilled performer will tell you, inhibitions are the enemy of improvisation.

[ Deregulation of Novelty ]

When mPFC activation is turned up, it encourages the internal generation of ideas. And when lateral PFC brain areas are simultaneously turned down, it allows novel thoughts and behaviors to emerge uninhibited, leading to divergent thinking and unfiltered creativity. In other words, the inner critic must be shut down, and the inner Picasso turned up. Deactivation of lateral PFC regions is associated with free-floating, defocused attention, allowing spontaneous associations between ideas to arise, and sudden realizations or insights to occur. Creativity appears to occur when the DLPFC decreases its regulation of the contents of consciousness, allowing for unconscious, unfiltered, or random sensations and thoughts to arise in the flow state. Just as children will play more wildly when the teacher isn’t watching, when we reduce the influence of the DLPFC on our behavior, it allows us to think more like artists.
