Brain hacking study: Train your cingulate cortex to reduce bias and regulate emotions
———- Don’t Like Their Faces? Train Your Brain to Feel More Positive (IEEE Spectrum): “Like it or not, we often have positive or negative feelings about a total stranger based solely on the looks of his or her face…Last week, researchers described, in the journal PLOS Biology, a brain training system that can alter emotions evoked by the sight of someone’s face. With just a few days of training, study volunteers felt more positively or negatively about a photo of a stranger… The fact that the brain activity monitored over the course of the experiment was going on in the cing...
