The Whole-Brain State and its Applications for International Business and Sustainable Success

  title={The Whole-Brain State and its Applications for International Business and Sustainable Success},
  author={Jeffrey L. Fannin and Robert M. Williams},
At first glance, neuroscience and business may seem an odd juxtaposition. However, the neuroscience of consciousness provides some understanding of the interrelatedness of subconscious belief patterns that drive behavior and affect optimal decisions by business leaders, as well as overall performance in business. Our thoughts and beliefs, i.e. our mindsets, drive our actions and create the results we are getting. This paper presents research that clearly links the mind/brain interface…

Action-Shapers and Their Neuro-Immunological Foundations
This article considers neuro-immunological effective processes that influence the gut-brain axis, chronic stress, high levels of sugar intake, the amygdala and the effects of prolonged stress.

Managers who want to encourage innovation need to examine what they do to promote or inhibit creative abrasion.
The maturing architecture of the brain's default network
This study used resting-state functional connectivity MRI (rs-fcMRI) to characterize the development of the brain's default network and found that the default regions are only sparsely functionally connected at early school age; over development, these regions integrate into a cohesive, interconnected network.

The default mode network and self-referential processes in depression
Depression is characterized by both stimulus-induced heightened activity and a failure to normally down-regulate activity broadly within the DMN, and these findings provide a brain network framework within which to consider the pathophysiology of depression.

There has been much confusion and controversy concerning the concept of emotional intelligence (EI). Three issues have been particularly bothersome. The first concerns the many conflicting

    Annual review of physiology

The first measurements of the electrical activity of the brain revealed prominent oscillatory activity, and until more recently the analysis of oscillatory patterns in the electroencephalogram and in field potentials recorded with intracerebral macroelectrodes has remained a major research tool of neuro­ physiology.
Switchboard versus statistical theories of learning and memory.
The conviction that training wore a "groove" of increased excitability along specific neural paths fom sensory input to motor output, and that the existence of that groove of cells was the memory of the experience, launched an avalanche of studies of lesions in which investigators sought the locus of the postulated connection.
The intrinsic electrophysiological properties of mammalian neurons: insights into central nervous system function.
It is proposed that the autorhythmic electrical properties of central neurons and their connectivity form the basis for an intrinsic functional coordinate system that provides internal context to sensory input.
The Anthropocene: From Global Change to Planetary Stewardship
The Anthropocene is a reminder that the Holocene, during which complex human societies have developed, has been a stable, accommodating environment and is the only state of the Earth System that the authors know for sure can support contemporary society.
Rostrocaudal Scan in Human Brain: A Global Characteristic of the 40-Hz Response During Sensory Input
These studies indicate that 40-Hz coherent neuronal activity large enough to be detected from the scalp is generated during cognitive tasks.
