New Study of Improvising Jazz Pianists Shows Similar Brain Circuits Used for Music and Language — PsyBlog

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

Brain regions that process language are also involved in communicating through music. When jazz musicians are improvising, the areas of the brain activated include those associated with syntax and spoken language, a new brain imaging study finds.The study had jazz musicians ‘trading fours’: which is where musicians each improvise four bars of music (Donnay et al., 2014).

Typically, trading fours is like a conversation. Each player picks up the themes of the other and elaborates, changes or ‘replies’ in some way.

This suggests that trading fours is more than just a metaphorical conversation, it activates the same areas of the brain involved in building sentences.

A fascinating nuance of the study was that although areas associated with syntax were activated, the areas of the brain associated with themeaning of language showed lower activation.

Agent-Based Computational Economics (Tesfatsion)

Agent-Based Computational Economics

DescriptionAgent-based computational economics (ACE) is the computational modeling of economic processes (including whole economies) as open-ended dynamic systems of interacting agents. Here “agent” refers broadly to a bundle of data and methods representing an entity residing within the dynamic system. Examples of possible agents include: individuals (e.g., consumers and producers); social groupings (e.g., families, firms, communities, and government agencies); institutions (e.g., markets and regulatory systems); biological entities (e.g., crops, livestock, and forests); and physical entities (e.g., infrastructure, weather, and geographical regions). Thus, agents can range from passive system features to active data-gathering decision makers capable of sophisticated social behaviors. Moreover, agents can be composed of other agents, permitting hierarchical constructions.

The Echo Effect: How Repeating People’s Words Improves Social Interaction

See on Scoop.itBounded Rationality and Beyond

People who are masters at communication often make good use of repeating back the words they hear from the people they are speaking with.

When people use the same words, it creates less social distance between them and makes them feel more similar to each other. But when people use very different words, it creates more social distance and makes them feel more disconnected from each other.

Psychologists are now calling this the “echo effect.” The basic idea is that by repeating back the words people use, we can benefit our social interactions in a variety of ways.

A recent study published in the Journal of Language and Social Psychologyelaborates on this effect. They found that mirroring people’s words can be very important in building likability, safety, rapport, and social cohesion.
