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… Expand

Putting your company's whole brain to work.
Managers who want to encourage innovation need to examine what they do to promote or inhibit creative abrasion. Expand
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. Expand
Of dreaming and wakefulness
It is argued that consciousness is fundamentally a closed-loop property, in which the ability of cells to be intrinsically active plays a central role, and the importance of spatial and temporal mapping in the elaboration of cognitive and perceptual constructs is discussed. Expand
The neuronal basis for consciousness.
The goal of this paper is to explore the basic assumption that large-scale, temporal coincidence of specific and non-specific thalamic activity generates the functional states that characterize human cognition. Expand
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. Expand

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 conflictingExpand

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.

Positive affect and the complex dynamics of human flourishing.
Findings suggest that a set of general mathematical principles may describe the relations between positive affect and human flourishing. Expand
Switchboard versus statistical theories of learning and memory.

  • 1972
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.
