From Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain

From Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain

By David M. Eagleman

David M. Eagleman’s first chapter of Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, entitled “There’s Someone In My Head, But It’s Not Me,” presents the human brain as the most powerful and amazing device yet discovered. Please read the following excerpt and then share your thoughts regarding the implications of his statements. Conduct a search and share related information that either confirms or contradicts the author. Include the URL for your source.

“Take a close look at yourself in a mirror. Beneath your dashing good looks churns a hidden universe of networked machinery. The machinery includes a sophisticated scaffolding of interlocking bones, a netting of sinewy muscles, a good deal of specialized fluid, and a collaboration of internal organs chugging away in darkness to keep you alive. A sheet of high-tech self-healing sensory material that we call skin seamlessly covers your machinery in a pleasing package.

And then there’s your brain. Three pounds of the most complex materials we’ve discovered in the universe. This is the mission control center that drives the whole operation, gathering dispatches through small portals in the armored bunker of the skull.

Your brain is built of cells called neurons and glia – hundreds of billions of them. Each one of these cells is as complicated as a city. And each one contains the entire human genome and traffics billions of molecules in intricate economies. Each cell sends electrical impulses to other cells, up to hundreds of times per second. If you represented each of these trillions and trillions of pulses in your brain by a single photon of light, the combines output would be blinding.

The cells are connected to one another in a network of such staggering complexity that it bankrupts human language and necessitates new strains of mathematics. A typical neuron makes about then thousand connections to neighboring neurons. Given the billions of neurons, this means there are as many connections in a single cubic centimeter of brain tissue as there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy.

The three-pound organ in your skull – with its pink consistency of Jell-o – is an alien kind of computational material. It is composed of miniaturized, self-configuring parts, and it vastly outstrips anything we’ve dreamt of building. So, if you ever feel lazy or dull, take heart: you’re the busiest, brightest thing on the planet.

Ours is an incredible story. As far as anyone can tell, we’re the only system on the planet so complex that we’ve thrown ourselves headlong into the game of deciphering our own programming language. Imagine that your own desktop computer began to control its own peripheral devices, removed its own cover, and pointed it webcam at its own circuitry. That’s us.

And what we’ve discovered by peering into the skull ranks among the most significant intellectual developments of our species: the recognition that the innumerable facets of our behavior, thoughts, and experience are inseparably yoked to a vast, wet, chemical-electrical network called the nervous system. The machinery is utterly alien to us, and yet, somehow, it is us.”

  • Secondary sources come from peer-reviewed scholarly journals, such as the Journal of Management. You may use like JSTOR, Google Scholar, and Social Science Research Network to find articles from these journals. Secondary sources may also come from reputable websites with .gov, .edu, or .org in the domain. (Wikipedia is not a reputable source, though the sources listed in Wikipedia articles may be acceptable.)

the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

In this assignment we will be focusing on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  This is one of the most important parts of the entire document.  Remember the First Amendment includes five key sections and they are: freedom of religion; freedom of speech; freedom of the press; freedom to peacefully assemble; and the freedom to petition government for redress of grievances.  For this assignment you will definitely need The Words We Live By book (pages 130-153).  You are also free to use other reliable and credible sources (do not use Wikipedia and other such sources).  If you are interested in using a source but unsure of its reliability just send me an email and ask.  The Words We Live By book should be mostly all you need.   But again other good and reliable sources can certainly be helpful.  The assignment will have two separate parts and you need to complete both parts in order to be eligible to gain full credit.

Please explain why the First Amendment is important?  Explain each of the five parts of the First Amendment?  How does the First Amendment limit the federal and state governments (in regards to the latter remember “incorporation”)?  Do you think certain kinds of limitations should be put on our constitutional First Amendment rights (remember the First Amendment reads “Congress shall make no law…”)?  How has the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on some cases dealing with First Amendment issues (give at least a few examples from Supreme Court rulings you can find)?

Personal Subcultures

Identify at least (3) subcultures you personally navigate. Provide specific examples of cultural behavior that only those in this subculture understand. Conduct background research to apply representative outside examples of your subcultures. Use accepted outside sources. Minimum of 250-300 words, references cited throughout, and Works Cited at end.

Management Information Systems – Assignment 2: Case Study

About this Assignment

In this course, you have learned that businesses utilize database management systems (DBMS) to store, organize, retrieve, manipulate, and report data. For this assignment, each student will submit an analysis of the business scenario for the ABC corporation. The ABC corporation business scenario is based on a fictitious company that is developing a database management system (DBMS) for storage of product, customer, and sales data. Audience: upper-level business students.

Project Prompts

The ABC corporation business scenario provides a foundation in which to examine the components of a database management system (DBMS), development of a system for business purposes and data collection, manipulation, and storage. The ABC corporation analysis should discuss the use of database management systems in business and examine how a DBMS presents a centralized view of data that can be accessed by multiple users. The written essay should be a minimum of 1,000 words in length and follow the APA formatting standards.

Business Scenario

The ABC corporation is a newly established company and the owner is looking for an efficient method of collecting, storing, and manipulating data. The corporation offers a variety of pet supplies and is initially a retailer that is currently selling products only online. As the corporation grows, it plans to also include physical retail locations in which to add services to the company’s offerings.

As a startup business, the ABC corporation needs to implement a database management system to allow the collection and sharing of business data among the employees; thus, the database management system should allow for multiple users. The corporation is currently gathering information about database management systems and seeking a contractor to create and implement the system. Business data will be organized in a logical manner and will be retrieved using a client-server network.

In your analysis provide the ABC corporation with information on database management systems and a recommendation from a contractor’s perspective. Information you are providing the ABC corporation should include the following:

  • Provide a definition of a database management system (DBMS) and discuss the purpose(s) in business.
  • Introduce the business scenario to analyze and discuss the benefits of implementing a database management system.
  • Describe what business data the company would benefit from collecting and manipulating.
  • Explain how a company uses a database management system to manage data collection, manipulate data and realize benefits from usage of a database management system.
  • Discuss the components of a DBMS and the process of developing a DBMS for implementation.
  • Discuss why companies utilize various systems for domestic and global business functions.
