PFC & Optimal Arousal of Catecholamines
Emotion supports Attention
Create mild to moderate emotion in learning experiences. Insights. Reappraisal.
They'll forget what you said but not how you made them feel.
We grow our memory. Repeat.
Same study time spaced across different sessions. Better.
Chunk it down.
The brain is attuned to Reward/Novelty and Changes/Prediction Error
Alert, Orient, Executive
Our brain isn't built to handle modern distractions.
Yerkes-Dodson Law of Optimal Arousal
What is your level of arousal, what is the level of arousal of the members of your team?
Under aroused is bored, disinterested, disengaged, lack of focus
Over aroused is stressed, burned out, confused, and thrown into a new situation that's overwhelming
Linear/Analytical Decision Making
Analytic vs, Holistic
Temporal Discounting - the further our a reward the more control for the reward in the future.
Emotions, context, social information all impact our decisions.
Overcoming Bias: The Brain likes short cuts!

Complex Problem Solving
: The science of
; Insight is a process
Brain Waves: Alpha-relaxation and sensory gaging; Beta-alert, focused, narrow attention; Gamma-new waves are formed. New signals weak diffuse signals; Gamma synchrony
The moment of insight is the burst of high alpha wave activity that leads to high gamma wave activity.
