The Triune Brain

The Triune Brain

Triune BrainOne powerful way to look at our lives and experiences, is to divide our the input channels into our brain into 3 parts (the so-called triune brain model proposed by Paul MacLean). The lowest (oldest) channel termed reptilian immersed in the fight or flight aspects of survival, the mammalian "limbic system" associated with emotions, pleasure and pain. And the highest most recently developed portion called the neo (new)cortex. The trick to being effective and successful in life is to maximize top down input from the neocortex to the limbic system and restricting "limbic hijacking" i.e bottom up input from what are not truly life-threatening situations.
