The psyco-economy of Charlie Brown: Matteo Motterlini at TEDxLakeComo – YouTube

https://www.youtube.com/v/L0NA4KwT4DU?fs=1&hl=fr_FR

Philosopher and neuroeconomist . He studied philosophy, economics and cognitive sciences in Milan, the London School of Economics and Carnegie Mellon University. He teaches a combination of these at San Raffaele. He currently lives in Santa Monica, California where he is conducting some new neuroeconomics experiments at UCLA. He is studying human irrationality and how we make (or are made to make) our decisions. He is director at The Center for Research in Experimental and Applied Epistemology (www.cresa.eu) on learning how to decide better. He has written books translated and appreciated around the world (Emotional Economics, Rizzoli 2006 and Cognitive Traps, Rizzoli, 2008).
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Emotional Renovations – Issue 8: Home – Nautilus

Home is more than a place on a map. It evokes a particular set of feelings, and a sense of safety and belonging. Location, memories, and emotions are intertwined within those walls. Over the past few decades, this sentiment has gained solid scientific grounding. And earlier this year, researchers identified some of the cells that help encode our multifaceted homes in the human brain.

In the early 1970s, neuroscientist John O’Keefe of University College London and his colleagues began to uncover the brain mechanisms responsible for navigating space. They monitored the electrical activity of neurons within a part of the brain called the hippocampus. As the animals moved around an enclosure with electrodes implanted in their hippocampus, specific neurons fired in response to particular locations.1 These neurons, which came to be known as place cells, each had a unique “place field” where it fired: For example, neuron A might be active when the rat was in the far right corner, near the edge of the enclosure, while neuron B fired when the rat was in the opposite corner.

Since then, further experiments have shown that the hippocampus contains at least two other types of brain cells involved in navigation. Grid cells fire periodically as an animal traverses a space, and head direction cells fire when the animal faces a certain direction.2,3 Together, place cells, grid cells, and head direction cells form the brain’s GPS, mapping the space around an animal and its location within it.
