brain on same wavelength

Neuroscientist Uri Hasson researches the basis of human communication, and experiments from his lab reveal that even across different languages, our brains show similar activity, or become “aligned,” when we hear the same idea or story. This amazing neural mechanism allows us to transmit brain patterns, sharing memories and knowledge. “We can communicate because we have a common code that presents meaning,” Hasson says.

how are my ideas distributed into your brain

3 min – physical entrainment: metronomes getting in sync

neural entrainment.. we all listen to same story and our scrambles go in sync

12 min –hidden neural mechanism by which we communicate..in future it will enable us to improve/facilitate communication..but ..relies on a common ground..have to be really worried as society if we lose this common ground & ability to speak w/people slightly diff than us because we let few very strong media channels take control of mic & manipulate/control the way we all think..*i‘m not sure how to fix it because i’m only a scientist..but maybe one way to do it is to go back to the more natural way of communication..**dialogue..in which it’s not only me speaking to you now..but a more natural way of talking..in which i am speaking and listening..& together we are trying to come to a common ground & new ideas. ..people we are coupled to define who we are..our desire to be coupled to another brain is something very basic that starts at a very early age..

*imagine we have a global do-over.. and refocus.. on **2 convos.. ie: hosting-life-bits via self-talk as data

14 min – keep being coupled to other people.. sum of all of us together.

a nother way

Studying aspects of human cognition that cannot be readily studied inhighly controlled experimental settings.


Uri Hasson grew up in Jerusalem. As an undergrad he studied philosophy and cognitive sciences at the Hebrew University. He completed his Ph.D. in Neurobiology at the Weizmann Institute in Israel and was a postdoctoral fellow at NYU before moving to Princeton. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Psychology Department and the Neuroscience Institute at Princeton University. His research program aims to understand how the brain processes real-life complex information and interacts with the environment; with a focus on integration of complex information over time and the interaction between two individuals and two brains during natural communication
