THE SYNCHRONIZATION OF BRAINS

See on Scoop.itThe Learning Circle

An understanding of how brains synchronize — or fail to do so — will be a
game-changing scientific development.

Few behavioral forces are as strong as the delineation of in-groups and
out-groups: ‘us’ and ‘them’. Group affiliation requires alignment, coupling or
synchronization of the brain states of members. Synchronization yields
cooperative behavior, promotes group cohesion, and creates a sense of group
agency greater than the sum of the individuals in the group. In the extreme,
synchronization yields herding behavior. The absence of synchronization yields
conflict.
