Study: Antisocial Teens May Have Brain Connection Issue
https://psychcentral.com/news/2019/05/31...47362.html

EXCERPT: A new international study discovered reduced brain activity and a weaker connection between brain regions among teenage girls with problematic social behavior. Investigators believe faulty neural wiring is a possible explanation for social deficits, including problems with emotion regulation. The study, led by University of Zurich researchers, provides an explanation for why some girls have trouble controlling their emotions. Moreover, the neurobiological explanation is encouraging as it suggests indications for possible therapy approaches. (MORE)



Doubts About What We Know Motivate Us to Learn More

INTRO: A new study shows that our doubts about what we know pique our curiosity and can motivate us to learn more. Researchers from the University of California, Berkeley say the findings challenge a popular belief that curiosity in general is the prime driver of learning. They also give new meaning to the Montessori approach to learning readiness, which encourages children to follow their own natural inquisitiveness.

“It’s very in vogue to talk about curiosity as a strategy to increase learning, but it’s unclear how to engage people’s curiosity,” said study senior author Celeste Kidd, an assistant professor of psychology at UC Berkeley. “Our study suggests it’s the uncertainty — when you think you know something and discover you don’t — that leads to the most curiosity and learning.”

Practical applications include tailoring classroom learning to students’ misconceptions about what they know, according to the researchers. “Asking students to explain how things work can be an effective learning intervention because it makes them aware of what they don’t know and curious about what they need to know,” said study co-lead author Shirlene Wade, a visiting PhD scholar in Kidd’s psychology lab at UC Berkeley.

female tween to teen intellectual and neurological development has been repressed amongst slave class sub set ideology cultures(all to most cultures in varying degrees).


many cultures still treat girls as slave class.
shutting them up like caged animals. preventing them from socializing and interacting with other people.
preventing them from developing more complex neurological behaviour sets.
deliberately treating them as slaves to make them compliant and like pets.
easy to control and move around like caged domesticated animals.

the complex expansion of liberal intellectual freedom to develop ones own individual personality is difficult for many slave masters(reptilian brain dominant men and women) to comprehend and control.
this reptilian brain concept of herding women and girls into cages is still very alive and well in the minds of man.

give them nothing, then they have nothing to complain about.

that is the behavioural culture issue

the other more alarming less known issue might be malnourishment as babys and in utero from mothers eating highly processed foods and mono crop like diets.
far too high in carbohydrates and low in fruits, berries and vegetables.
the move away from meat as a form of dietary health may have undermined the complex higher availability of nutrients by the meat being replaced with junk carbohydrates.

there may need to be some study into starvation of pregnant women to get an idea of base level of neurological damage of babys.


eating larger amounts of carbohydrates instead of variant fruits berries nuts and vegetables, may be a big issue with the advancement of the modern consumer diet.


adding to that a high level of urban density and complex social issues, this may compound the neurological deficits that may have been induced by force by deliberate malnutrition of female babys as a way to effeminate them subconsciously.

Larger, more developed amygdalae, seen in conservative brains, are more connected to other brain regions and better at assessing threats and moderating emotions.

So it's likely faulty rearing from leftist morons that leads to problematic social behavior and poor emotional regulation. They are mistaking correlation with causation.
