A Big Silly Animal It Is

a: The amygdala ~
b: the elephant

What: "Relating back to the presentation on the anatomy of Emotional Intelligence, the amygdala performs emotion processing, while the neocortex analyses rational data. The amygdala is like the elephant while the neocortex is the rider attempting to manage its direction. I loved the analogy. Almost as good as comparing social change to the effort of turning a dinosaur with a rolled-up newspaper. A Mindful State is the integration and processing of data from both the amygdala and the neocortex. A holistic approach."
