ALPHABETICAL BRAIN™ VOCABULARY
YOUR PREFRONTAL CORTEX #12
October 29, 2019
WHAT IS YOUR PREFRONTAL CORTEX?
AND WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT?
The purpose of your prefrontal cortex is to make you the master of your emotions and behavior, which means that it gives you executive control over your feelings and bodily movements, if you learn how to manage your emotions through developing your critical thinking skills and critical reading strategies.
All people need to cope with life's great issues and make fulfilling decisions sometime during their lifetimes.
This website assumes that the best way to cope with the new scientific brain knowledge as part of your enlightened consciousness is to apply critical thinking skills and critical reading strategies to stimulate your creative imagination and empower yourself to create your own goals and plans for success in the future based upon rational althruistic secular ethical humanistic values.
Critical thinking skills and critical reading strategies both involve improving your vocabulary, and therefore, your intelligence and resilience as you seek new knowledge and ask yourself essential questions to satisfy your curiosity.
At the most profound philosophical level of abstraction, your questions can be about the nature of reality and the ultimate purpose of the universe and your place in it!
The questions you ask yourself and your most trusted friends and relatives can involve the most serious kinds of intellectual activity as you make your own life meaningful first within the family social context that you were born and later within the adult personal context that you create for yourself.
RECOMMENDATION: You can re-read this summary according to a reinforcement schedule, such as a few hours later and a few days later and then several times in the next week or two. This strategy can help you take advantage of the power of the spaced-repetition method of memorization. Such deep introspection can change your adaptive self-identity and increase your self-esteem (positive emotions about yourself).
You are your adaptable memory!
