Product Description

We are always scanning the world to see whether our predictions match the real-world outcomes that we experience.  We continually measure our internal perceptions of people against the way that they behave.  When there are differences between perceptions or predictions and outer results, we experience disquiet.  We perform this same process for ourselves as we try to choose our path through life, measuring possible strategies against what we predict about the world.  What part of our brain holds this capacity for us, and what role does it play in our anxieties, our agency, our ability to be at peace with ourselves?  Join me this month for an exploration of our anterior cingulate cortex, and for a deepening sense of the gifts of somatic empathy.
