The lizard brain asks:
“what was that movement you just saw?”
“Was it a predator?”
“Perhaps it was a small rodent scurrying into the brush…dinner?”
“Or maybe it was an image brimming with meaning…”
Hmm, there’s a thought – you in a forest of images, each of which was created to impart a message.
“You” in this example is more specifically your basal ganglia – the part of your brain often referred to as the “lizard brain,” “reptilian brain,” or “old brain”. The basal ganglia are associated with cognition, emotion, movements of the eye, and procedural learning. This part of ourselves is alive and well and is integral to the process of grabbing and keeping attention.
