Duped Mind-brain

Volume 4, Issue 15, December 12, 2013

The cognitive processes in our mind-brain is a vast undertaking of neurological pathways that define, transmit, differentiate, and send signals to our body by way of decisions, memories, emotions, and perceptions that the mind-brain recognizes. However, the main ingredient of the processes is how much we pay attention to what is being perceived, felt, smelled, heard, and tasted in our magnificent five senses capacity. Attention is a social process that we maintain and gain through education and what we are enabled with upon birth hopefully without any defects.

Some of the factors that play a part in our attention span are:

  1. Social Cognition – Study of the processes of social information (encoding, retrieval, and application)
  2. Thought – Thinking and the mental processes (goals, plans…)
  3. Cognition – Processing the information by knowledge or application
  4. Animal Cognition – Cognitive ethology and the non-human development that we are equipped with through nature or naturally.
  5. Cognitive Psychology – Examination of external mental processes (problem solving, memory, and language)
  6. Cognitive Neuroscience – scientific study of neural mechanisms underlying cognition.
  7. Genetics – Cellular or molecular structure
  8. Cognitive Bias – Observer denials and differentiations (

Some of the processes that we have mentioned above are all processes that are currently being programmed into artificial intelligence or otherwise known as robotics to retrieve invaluable data and use as new industry masters. Once thought of as taboo in robotics is now trending as the newest and most invaluable technology that is vastly growing and becoming mainstream in our daily lives. Industry has also developed technological marvels that can feel sensations like the robotics used in artificial limbs that have sensors attached to them. New industry in the entertainment industry is jumping on board to create robotics of a sexual nature and to remedy sexual disorders or provide a different a new experience with sexual sensing robots.

It has been established by neuroscience and psychology sciences that the ability to learn depends on our auditory and visual processing. Some of the most researched subjects on learning disorders, dyslexia, dyscalculia, schizophrenia, and developmental aphasia are related subjects and other mental disorders that could be traced back to the visual and auditory processes in the most basic forms of perception. Our perception can also be flawed by lights, darkened areas, and shapes that appear to us in our mind-sight. Visual perception is a key to your mind-brain memory, recall, learning, and cognitive understanding when reading and using spatial recognition to determine space and coloring of objects and subject matter.


So what is spatial recognition? It is a general awareness of your surroundings and the relationship of your body to your surroundings. Spatial recognition keeps you from taking a dive down stairs, or even busting your head against a wall. Yipe’s, that hurt! Our awareness is interlinked or fused with our observations, perceptual processing, encoding, storage and retrieval, and perceptions (

Some people have problems recognizing objects or even having the capacity to learn new things because of neurological disorders like those mentioned above through no fault of their own when they are born with flawed neuron-pathways that are not transmitting data, objects, or subject matter correctly to the mind-brain. Some places that could help pave the way to recovery and re-grow neurological pathways for people with these types of disorders are:

National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
The nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization

Mental Health America
Network of resources for living a mentally healthy life

SAMHSA Mental Health Services
Resource for substance abuse and mental health

Bring Change 2 Mind
Medical advisory panel as well as information on schizophrenia and other mental illnesses

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

Neuro-psychology and neuro-science is the most recognized medical data to date in regard to spatial recognition and the way our mind-brain recognizes objects and subject matter. We observe differently from one gender to another as well.

Our mind-brain acts like a camera and we also have what is called visual perceptions and peripheral vision, where we could visualize and see objects that are at a hand’s distance or up to a distance of two miles dependent on the lighting and coloring, but can we recognize all of the objects or subject matter we see? The answer is no, we cannot see every object that we can see or observe. Our mind-brain can also wreck havoc on our memories recalling things we did not actually see.

The mind-brain is activated by all our five magnificent senses. So even if we are not aged or feeble minded our mind-brains can play tricks on us. So you don’t think just the aged are struck with memory loss but fact is that everyone in the world like teens, adults, and the aged are affected by this memory loss!

Our mind-brain can even be fooled into thinking we are seeing moving objects in the most unlikely places like still photographs or graphics that are still graphics. This type of reaction or response we have is responding to optical illusions. Optical illusions can also be spatial illusions that are moving or even standing still in photographs or space and time.

So what do you think is one of the top ten things we get wrong as people in memory recall? Surprisingly enough they are:

  1. Where you parked your car.
  2. Telephone numbers (it is now more prevalent than ever)
  3. Spelling
  4. Keys
  5. Names

Isn’t that a kick in the head so to speak! More and more we are relying on technology to save that information and we do not use the same neurological pathways which we used before so our mind-brain is slowly discarding it. Our memory is only as good as an exercised neurological pathway. So we must stay abreast of new technology to keep our mind-brain as active and exercised as we possibly can. Repetitive and repeat processes or memory recall tests and games are a great way to start stimulating the mind-brain. There are numerous programs starting in grammar school up to college or university level learning games and memory games. Different content and context need different games for example, mathematics are mathematics recall games or arithmetic, English with English grammar and usage, and history with historical games, trivia, or guessing games. Puzzles are a wonderful way to stimulate our mind-brains (
