“Reward‐associated aggression may be a universal trait detectable in all people. Predisposed individuals enjoy acting violently because of the reward effect of this behavior itself and might search for situations in which they can act violently. Not only the direct exertion but also the perception of violence frequently has an appetitive aspect…”
There is a specific part of the brain where, perhaps, our “values” are encoded, long-term in the cells genomes. “All of us make many decisions every day. For most things, such as which jacket to wear or where to grab a cup of coffee, there’s usually no right answer, so we often decide using values […]
…once loyal Nazi worker who, as the war came to an end and the regime collapsed, declared:
“Here, we review computational models, behavioral findings, and results from neural recordings associated with these frameworks. In synthesizing this literature, we submit that decision making is best understood as a continuous, graded, and distributed process that traverses a landscape of behaviorally relevant options, from their presentation until movement completion. “
During ontogeny [development starting with conception], the brain is permanently organized as male- or female-typical in a process called sexual differentiation. Sex-specific brain development supports the emergence of behaviors necessary for reproduction, parenting, and social behaviors such as aggression. Sexual differentiation is driven by sex-specific hormonal signals. In mammals, the major hormonal signal is the […]
Dont’ suppose any physicists/philosophers/economists/social scientists/marketers/etc even can comprehend this! lol “[The] system is organized as parallel sensorimotor streams, each contributing to a specific type of action within the animal’s [yes, humans ARE animals] behavioral repertoire, whose activity is orchestrated through selective invigoration, energization, or drive from the basal ganglia and other structures.
“…asking how “cognition” works may not be a biologically relevant question at all…”attention,” as a biological category, does not exist….In fact, there is no “decision-making system” in the brain, but instead a variety of selection mechanisms that gradually emerged within various circuits…”
