The 3 Part Brain: chapter 3 (1/5) pg 65-71

Andrew Wake Newsletter, Parenting

Hi to all.

Chapter 3 looks at a particular model of how the brain works called the 3 part brain.  The parts include the reptile, mammal and human brains.  Each part if connected to the others and have their own distinct functions.  There is also a hierarchy within the 3 parts, with the reptile brain when triggered overwhelming the mammal and human brains.

This first of five videos looks at an overview of this idea, with the latter videos covering what the implications of it are and how it can help in knowing how to respond when the reptile brain is running the show.
