Recently cently he's Aleisha reflecting on those first three minutes. What we want to do when we passion about and scientists connect with an audience? And I I have that problem I'm full of hyperbole and scientists aren't and I love that about them and they care about the mess they care about the facts and I hear all that and I read all that and then I'm just like oh his blitz. He's some poetry so I remember Reading Steven Weinberg's book the first three minutes of the universe and it's full of great fact so this was my interpretation mango juice squeezing from the heavens technically correct Richt by the way the physicists would disagree in that universe buddies taking a obviously a poetic license. But that's what I as a poet what I can never find the right words and the reason the movie dirty dancing connected so well with me. Is that moment. That one of the main characters is carrying a watermelon win and she goes up to Patrick swayze who she likes and says. I carried a watermelon. And that's all she can say and that is what I am like so often. I can't find the exact words and I love that about science that they can find words really matter and in a scientific communication or scientific paper hyper words mean everything but I love as a poet. I can sort of pie around with that and Taika Pot. Isn't it interesting that you draw contrast because as I often think when I'm reading your work that infect poetry and science scherer conciseness and brevity of language precision each word gets placed with intent. And yet your thinking of the relationship is quite contrasted. I totally understand what you're saying. And Brevity is so true and as a poet and I'm sure poets in the audience. They can understand this. Every word matters this and carries it's white but the thing is how do you communicate dark matter. Or how do you communicate Nebula something in biology or does I mean I can never find the right words. I love in contact. A film inspired by. Carl Sagan's book by the same. I'm Nice Cellular pinup boy. I'm so glad it was there. I didn't know you were gonNA talk about him.

I'll get to go just to ago. Mango juice everywhere. Do you feel like you could take sides. Or is that that's not your raisin for you all the Wanda I'm about to wonder in storytelling. I do understand that sometimes the failure of can you just beautifying science and that is somehow not enough and and that's why I love what so many people do is they take it apart in question and what aren was hanging is just so incredible what they do but I yes yeah so just like the storytelling and I really need to communicate it to audiences so they can just take away a little bit of wondering their pocket full of wonder. Hey John Adams Americans said you never learn if you have a poet in your pocket. I just loved that I said what are you trying to do with. I've seen your show particle wave. which takes you inside a planetarium? Describe it for people but also what you're hoping to do with that piece it's musical visual Poetic Extravaganza yes. I loved canvas of the Planetarium Dome and from when I was young and a lot of you would feel feel the Siamese diaby lie back. And you've got this gorgeous. Almost three sixty canvas above you and so I wanted to use that canvas to sell tell held. The story of gravitational waves got to work with a lot of scientists and I recorded a lot of scientists and I want the general public to coming and have a sense of awe four so it mixes poetry music visuals just to tell the story from general relativity some black holes look lookit to kill an and just sort of pint pitcher and I want people to come out and say well I might go read up on that but I had a science instinct come in an eighteen year old. He said that she walked in wanting to do chemistry and came out wanting to do gravitational wave astronomy. And I'm like my works done. That's enough poet delicious.

Absolutely what about science though not really well here as Baba Brinkman canadian-born and and married to a neuroscientist at some point these graduate in comparatively chat court the science bug big time and he's now a renowned science communicate through he's rap gods to things like climate change evolution human nature religion and culture my first rap theater popularisation project CHAUCER's Canterbury Tales and a An evolutionary biologists in England saw that and he said good job.

"Practicing performing their performances in other times where your brain betrays you than even though, you know. Nothing. It's just blank empty in there. You mean like when you lose like what you're going say, you're lying choke? Oh, okay. So basically what's happening there is when you actually become too self conscious to self aware. What are they thinking? Oh my God. How am I sounding? How many doing whatever you're actually turning on your engaging prefrontal cortex and it's distracting because you're having all these other thoughts interject. Because basically when you're trains when you're trained, performer, or an athlete. The hope what is your body knows what to do? And you have to let it to what it knows how to do. And the moment you start your consciousness starts interjecting, you mess up the system, you mess up the flow. And that's when it can choke. You can forget what you're supposed to do or say when you choke out in that flow state. So the whole idea if performing just trust that your body or your brain knows what it's gonna do. And let go when I give a lecture like I plan what I'm going to say. But then I just talk like I don't even if I start thinking about what am I going to say next, whatever it will totally mess it up. So I trust that my brain has the information. There knows what to say that just comes out. But yeah, that's basically don't be self aware. The thing if as much as you can. Spent a lot of time trying to learn how to confess the first time. I did it. I would wack I really wanted to learn this in find ways to say lyrics, basic that is finding ways to pivot. See what I'm saying the fall. But in that space, you can find ways not to fall in your face kind of like walking face plant. Oh, you're you're treating and doing by Ken. That's that's great. We'll take a few more questions up here. We're awkward picture. It's fake awkwardness is awkward, okay. So. Thought so. When you're who used to say here. Okay. Out answers in class. Syndrome nicely accident or something really terrible. Oh god. And so he trained us to believe that you're not supposed to do that. That line. Every on. Right. Where you know what else? Yeah. Well, so we have there's the rules of society of social engagement. And so we've evolved these Cordis because it's to withhold responding. Like your immediate response my daughter's in kindergarten garden now, and you know, the teachers like, well, she calls out, whatever. 'cause she knows the answer. It's like she doesn't have a fully formed prefrontal cortex. It's very hard for her to like. For you know, it's like Mike everybody. By like ago, anyway, so we we start out like we don't have a lot of impulse control we develop it over time, and it's active, but as opposed to somebody who has prefrontal cortex damage like I see patients of pretty severe they've gotten Karaxitis or had head traumas. They can't control their impulses. They don't have the option. It's just there like a child, you know, there's just immediate or their attention all over the place. We have the ability to control it. But we also the ability to let it go at will. So that's the key. It's like you're considered to have impulse control disorder. If you don't know when it's for to do at not when you came in this social situation. I know I have to raise my hand side. He says that I can do it. But I also can let it go when I want it was under control. Then I think it's a data, and it's good to get into those states. I think I've patients where they can't get out of that state, and that's also problematic. So we can do both. We are very, you know, our brains, very robust. She just revealed definitive peak of awkwardness us at our daughters, para teacher conferences. Is this the basics? She's not doing bad. Here's the neuro scientific explanation. Poor frigging teacher. But that's okay. Because she does know the research, and I know we all that stuff to say what you can train your brain win to open the flood gates..

"Coming on stage. Wave. Way that you would like. So okay. So the wave in the crowd as brainwaves it was. Yeah. It was this an example of right? That was an example of what the thing about neurons is just groups of neurons fire together that's different then looking brainwaves which is measured with we measure with things like EEG or Meg which is basically looking at like states of activation across different parts of the brain not individual neurons, and it's different than Ekka. Marai FM is more looking like functional magnetic resonance imaging which is a lot in the media, which is like this part of the rain lights up when we think of this or that, it's not really lighting. It's just really looking lead flow to different parts of the brain as a proxy that. That's where the neurons firing. But with these different states like alpha beta gamma, delta, they're they're looking cross the brain at sort of levels of activation. I guess you can call it on and they have to do with different states wakefulness and sleep. So like when you're in a deep sleep you have slower brain activation like delta waves or when you're wide awake. It's like alpha beta, so. What was your is creativity associated with? I'm just going my mind through the day. I think that you're correct. They're certain. Correlations between when people are in those states and getting to certain kind of level of brain activation across the brain. Like, I I can't remember if it was beta or not. But if you said that that was in the study that was, but I know that there was a certain type of brain division that you're in. But I do but I am skeptical. This is my caveat of there's some devices out there that say like, oh, you know, we can measure your brain onto patient and tells you when you're in this or that state. I'm very skeptical those things so we look at EG we have sixty four different channels, and they have to it's conducted their wet, you know, basically to get true levels of rain activision when you're looking east devices that have one or two electrodes here, they're not really getting at any real you're mostly getting muscle movement. And so when it says, I can kind of read your rain waves and tell you you're in this or that state, I wouldn't be very skeptical. Those kinds of devices. That's caveat. Scientific every time. She speaks skeptical of any motive check it out. I have never helpless foot being a wave all my waves health. Question. Giving. Gary..

"Yeah. That's a really I wish we had all that information at our fingertips. It's pretty complex so beliefs or we call schema xxx that are really firmly held are off that we often held onto them for a lot of unconscious reasons that we can't even grasp why. So they're very firmly held so even when you're given evidence to the contrary we find ways to argue against that. So it's actually very difficult to change it's different than perception perception, just basic, sensory processing that Heller brain immediately. Interpret said beliefs are different parts of the brain there herder to change. Now. I don't think there's no studies that I know of off hand where we've actually looked at what happens in the brain. When a belief changes. I don't know if you've ever cost come across any of that he's done some he he did show on consciousness. I was an adviser for it tribal affiliation tribal affiliation. Like, the belief is associated with Mike group believes this right and the change. Of my mind will end up causing me to have a rift with my group's sort of identity protective in the brain. When that happened. So basically, I mean, that's one interesting one that actually where you identify a group it changes, depending on the context. So like, for instance, like in America, I'm like, oh, I'm I'm a New Yorker come from the northeast and those people from the south. But then like when I was living in the UK. It was like, oh, no, we're all American. We're like part of the team. So like how you identify in a sense can change in belief system, but the neural basis of it. I can't quite say that we've identified Vink actually some stuff in Sam Harris's book about that the moral landscape it he's basically arguing that the brain holds beliefs in the same kind of category that it holds facts in that event that doesn't think of values and facts or abstract faxes different. So well that is changing are inherently a beliefs are subjective in our brain. We're processing men as if they are truth as they are not subjected. Objective, and that's very to chain. But you're supposed to wrap your answer. King to rhymes in nothing. But witticisms and still my way. Upon criticism. Easily every single second change my freedom beliefs. You your brains enhanced skeptical, and then you gave me a chance I'm from Oxford got up picture me when the weight Canadian science rapper trying to be geez. And yet here we are. It's too.

"Yeah. So like in the modern world, it's real people want to be creative on demand, which is very difficult to do. And it's about getting you into that mindset. Right. But the brain is kind of like a muscle. So there's certain networks if you basically what learning is if you start to activate it and keep activating over time practicing. It becomes easier to access that brain state. So if I use like freestyle rap is an example difficult to get to that brain state. I'm sure I we start difficult, but over time now, we could just be doing anything. I'd be like, oh like freestyle about that. He just come up with something. Right. He can switch into it right away. And so I think the more you practice the skill outside of the sort of work environment, and sort of train your brain to get into that space work and kind of easily let go or like. Deactivate your prefrontal cortex just for a moment. It'll become easier to get there on demand. But it's not always it's not always possible. And so and also to stay in those flu states. That's another thing that people strive to get into that kind of flow and stay there for longer because we get distracted lose it. So I think with practice you'll be it'll be easier for you to call it upon demand. How do you make it in business and make it happen home in taxes freestyle rapping? Sided you're like, we work. What I'm saying? We don't have the prima snus every creative woman has to be intimidating. The way that you could break going to work and start fucking microdosing. I keep on it.

Let's continue keep pulling concepts about Riechelmann. You check it out education is good. That's something I believe. But unlike you, I do not have an education from the Ivy league. No, indeed, check it out. That's why be humble I did some university studies where I come from British Columbia. Yes, indeed, check it out reps. I spitted Joe. I got myself a masters. In English liberal. Yeah. Check it out. I'm probably the only one who got a masters because he thought it would make him linguistically better at competing with rappers. Yeah, I get up here when I still off my boat cab. And they're like for a white boy that was not so bad. See freestyles? I'd be stepping up in please in them up.

Not once or moods. Freedom is like a muscles only strong when it's used that could stop. This show you that I could stop I stopped want me to stop. I really just called like Cohen a rat bag. Hopefully, it's just going to do the right thing. From now on. Look, I spent a lot of time training myself to rhyme at the drop of done. That's freedom. I can clean mine. Freedom isn't a metaphysical state at the level of that. It's a collection of talents that he can develop and manage freedom evolves.

"Come on. But you know, it brings it a lot into question on the idea of free will right because free start like people often thinking about how much control do I really have over my decisions over what I say what I do. And according to neuroscience and many studies we think free wills illusion. We actually look at your brain active Asian. It's going back to the eighties with Benjamin live until now, but we can looking at brain in FM machine and ask you to either go press the left of the right button at will at random, and we can predict up to ten seconds before you're even consciously aware of your intention, which which way you're gonna go with pretty good. The readiness potential. There's gearing up to make a decision point you become consciously aware of your intention, and then you actually make the decision and do it. Call the readiness potential. So I'd like to say that people don't have their unconscious might have free will. But your conscious is like the last to know about it. Anyway, I take just do a little rap demonstration of his thoughts on free will as a little rap interlude. Right. So experiment had me do like a free style rather than a memorize rap and the free saw rapid memories rap and looked at the blood flow, and that is far to write a song that Scott free style. And it's written elements going back and forth. So this is going to be about the debate over whether we have free will or not. And it's interesting that the majority of philosophers involve your mind think that we do have free will they're compatible. But the majority of scientists say that we don't have free will. So if anybody listen to podcast was on the San Harris podcast debated Dan dented over compatible versus paddle ISM. That's the inspiration for the rap. But to show you that it really is free style. I need three topics or suggestions of things I'm going to end up riffing on in. The lyrics, and then you know, when referencing your stuff, that's improvise. And when I'm doing stuff that's not about your stuff, Than's memorize, so. All right, Mike Cohen deserves. Deficient education. Okay. Cohen education. What else North Korea? The easy topics.

"This is Mike crowd. Okay. Yes. We had a rather healthy prefrontal cortex. I had met. But this part of the women here is actually missing. Yeah. And that's the part of the brain that has to do with listening. If you're married you'd get that. Would you say? Now, his brain was fine. And this is based on limited data showing across couple of rappers looking brain activation between these conditions and what you could find is that in the freestyle condition compared to the memorize condition. You have had brain activation. You have decreased activation here in these areas and blue in the dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex. Remember, I spoke about that before that has to do with working memory online memory. So because the rap is not memorized. It's completely spontaneous. That part of the brain is turned down. And that part of the rate also has to do with your sense of self your ego. So you kind of when you're in these to people tend to lose their sense of self. It also is a filter system of your brain that filters your behavior to make sure it conforms of social norms. But that's down anything goes, and it allows for creativity because it allows for these novelist between ideas like when your child actually prefrontal cortex is not fully developed until about the age of twenty five. So when you're very young kids are spontaneously created they don't have the filter yet. And so as dull tip, you can turn now that part of the breed can be more creative where things feel like the flowing through you because you're turned down lose your sense of time and self employed and people associated with very positive emotions, they strive to get to these states. And what's also interesting is another study was done with jazz improvisers doing the same thing in the scanner. And they had to just sort of like you have to sit still, but they played on a little electric keyboards, memorize peace and improvise peace and the seep hiring of brain activation was found in the jazz in providers in that they had decreased dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex activation and also increased medial prefrontal. These people had that as well. And that has to do with the internal generation of ideas. So it's coming from within. It's perhaps coming up from the unconscious unfiltered, and it's not just random notes. It's not like anything goes, right? They have to first tree consciously and only the most skilled people who really understand how to perform. And then let go and be good freestyle. So the eminent philosopher Marshall matters a k m you have to lose yourself in the music the moment you when it you better. Never let it go.

"So you can think of the brain like there's these two basic systems that are working in Saint you have these pretty well these areas in red which are early older like erupt tilles brain they contain things like the make trade which is involved in ward, and they're sensitive to immediate pleasure or avoid void pain four hundred call it like your it impulses. Right. You want that piece of chocolate cake right now, then you have the more recently evolved prefrontal cortex, which humans actually have the largest percentage of prefrontal cortex compared to the rest of the brain than any other animal, and that has to do with kind of thinking about the future consequences of your actions, and weighing that against your immediate impulses for might call it your like superego, so and then these these two brainers connected. But what happens when we see my patients who have impulse control disorders is that either you have too much overdrive from these subcortical areas kinda like. Celery overriding, the brake system or you have underactive -ation or damage to the prefrontal cortex to the brake systems. He can't stop yourself or the connections between these two systems are faulty and any one of those types of problems can lead to problems impulse control. Actually, the way I like to think of this is to tweet or not to tweet. That's. So as I said if damage to the prefrontal.

So we're all experience in the world and slightly different different ways. So we can again different this this in the lab which looking at by stable images. So here, for example, either I can prime you with words, like elderly and wise, and you'd likely see the old woman looking down that's her nose her mouth Channing, or I can give you words like young youthful. You'd see the younger woman looking away. That's eyelash her nose chin and her ear, but you'll never see them at the same time. Your brain will flip back and forth between perceiving one the other. And again, that's we want to track. What's happening in your brain? For example, when you see the old woman versus dope. What's changing in terms of your neural, the neurons fiery and what we find is? Is that what tends to correlate with what you see at any given moment are these coalitions of neurons that start firing together. So if you think of it like a kind of parliamentary election in the brain or Winnie evolution between groups of neurons in the brain like sometimes group of neuron comes to power, and it stays there for a few seconds. That's what comes into your consciousness at that given moment if you attend to something it stays there longer until the next group of neurons coalition of neurons comes to power, and that's sort of the F and flow of your conscious perception this actually is not actually Twitter feed. Tricks you, but it's it's similar I like an to to Twitter because if each nor firing a tweet when enough people tweet about something starts to kind of trend in our global consciousness, and that sort of what's happening in the brain when enough neurons start firing together it comes up into into consciousness. It's also important to remember that that it's Cray across these distributed network. It's in the brain is not just all coming together at one place. This is just a neural network of a bird brain, which is pretty complex most people have more complex brain than a bird. And so you can Agean emphasize most that it's. It's pretty complicated to map out these neural networks in the brain. And to track the neural of consciousness, the other thing is these neurons are coming together in your brain. When they come together. It's not like they're firing at the same time that would be like an epic seizure, but they're firing in coordination instinct, so if you can think of each Noren is like an instrument in August all start playing together symphony. That's what it's like or a wave in crowd. If a person, you know, they don't stand up and sit down at the same time, but they don't randomly either. They're doing it in Saint in coordination. That's what brings these neurons together footage from one of my route. Maybe a few years. But what I would do is actually take you on a little tour inside the brain. Explain what each part of the brain does. And but to keep it interesting. Maybe baba you can like freestyle interpret what I'm saying. Yeah..

"Exhausted after typical privilege. Background. Joe? Still and. Seven. Profit. Okay. You ready? All right, Kate. I'm gonna give you the Mike start wrapping. And then you just start writing about Titanic. You ready? I start wrapping. Next. You're not getting paid. Okay. How do I switch back? Okay. Great. Okay. So what do we learn there because it's all experiment? So actually it's pretty difficult to simultaneously rap and do another linguistic task at the same time. Actually. Sort of do it a little bit, right? You are able to get a couple of words out. Bava got a couple more out hit a little bit more practice. So even though you are utilizing these language areas of the brain while rapping, there's still some sort of cognitive reserve leftover to simultaneously do another linguistic task. But just take it up one more notch. Right. What about? What about freestyle rap? So this is where it's completely fun tedious this. It's it's we call Martinez creativity. You have to come up with the lyrics in the moment. Think about them. They have to Ryan to stay on meet has to make sense. It's a really complex cognitive task trying to freak. So the question is can you freestyle about Titanic and then a new simultaneously, right? Something different about Titanic while you're you're free styling. He's kate. Okay. You go first.

That's one thing. We learned for short, basically, they could both pretty easily do the visual identification task which tells me that you don't really need to use much of your Sipple cortex, which is involved in processing visual information to wrap you can raise identify objects in the room visually while without breaking flow. Then we did the math problem, and it looked like it would be pretty hard. But actually both could pretty easily Q it that's because mathematical processing involves the part of the brain called the parietal cortex, and it's also involved in your body of orientation in space. That's why you can also around a lot law. Wrapping, it doesn't really mess you up. She can impactful do math problems and rack, however, when we got in the memory problem if it came a little. In order to recall, memorize raptor, using party rain called the dorsal lateral prefrontal. And this is a task of working memory or online memory, which is also using the same part of the brain. So if you don't have the rap really locked down, and you're still like you have to utilize activation that part of the brain. Now simultaneously give you another test. That's taxing the same part of the brain it becomes difficult. You know, able to bother can't always get it. Sometimes he gets three out of four. It's true. Right. Sometimes don't get them. All but it's really difficult, but what a lot of practice with the rat. Yeah. The last time he performed a Rottweiler live on stage. This morning in the shower..

"So and I kind of just like throwing some personality tests, and I measure just a case 'cause he had asked me out. I wanted to to them. But. So yeah, I had to come in. And I basically wanted him to do to wrap and then simultaneously do different cognitive tasks. And when there was an overlap, basically between that part of the brain that's involved in that cognitive function. And wrapping it would kind of mess up his performance that would allow me to understand the parts of the brain that are involved with wrapping. So I thought maybe I would do a live demonstration here of a couple of the tests that Iran on him and an order to do this. So I need to get a volunteer because I need to compare him to a healthy control subjects. I mean, just the control subjects. I'm sorry. I'm used to talk at psychiatric. They're both held me. So do we we have to to launch? Here's I'm gonna take. Anyway, this is the caveat. You have to know a wrap. It could be any rap as long as you know, what heart. Are you guys not raising your hands anymore? The to do, you Do know? you know? Like, you have to know at least like a few. Hello, maybe bars or something like that. Like, twenty seconds, thirty seconds. No, no, you memorize. Okay. You've gotta he's clearly memorized. Okay. Okay. Come come up. You got what's your song to Rottweiler Rottweiler? I don't know. Yeah. Route I've never heard that one on the stage, which your date, Walter. Maybe. Okay. So what want to just should practice? Practice do fresh. Locked. You know, you're good. Okay. As confident we'll see. So what I'm gonna do? I'm Bob will go through it. I is your you'll you'll start wrapping. And you'll you're going to try to stay if the ends of like what, you know, just go back in and start beginning as long as you just keep a constant flow. And then I'm gonna have you few tests. We're gonna do visual identification tasks where basically I ask you to like look at a certain object in the room, and then you'll have to point to it. And then you'll have to appoint on the screen what the color is about object. Okay. And let me just do a little demonstration wait move over for a second. I'm just gonna show the this is a kind of an example of a task that we give I just thought I wanna give us a little demonstration before we begin. You guys might have seen this before. But just get inkling of what he's going to start going through in a minute. What do you do is just read the name of the color of the word that I put on the screen? Okay. You guys know this. No, this are very well educated audience. Let's do it. Anyway. All right here, we go ready all in unison. Right. Green. Yeah. Look at the Q and the. So, you know, the thing is even if you know, it, you know, you still can't trick your brain. Right. It's still becomes a little bit difficult, and you slip up and that tells me again, there's a conflict in your brain. So that's what we're gonna look at some of these tasks motor task at the saints firm. It can also mess you because of the brain is involved in patrolling every muscle in your body as well. So part of these tests are going to look at motor skills, cognitive tasks and get wall wrapping so one will be your object in the room. You're going to simultaneously trying to need the color of the object of points on the street. It'll be listened color wall to RAB then we're going to do a math problem. Okay. So I'm gonna hold him a number fingers, and you're going to have to plug in that number into and the equation, and then solving Beijing's point to the answer on the screen, right? We're going to a memory task where I'm in a points of four different objects. And in Ray like this then you'll have a pause Jill little motor task. And then you'll come back after points of the objects. Okay. He's the case. My second date. So it's going to go. I got it. All right. I like to say that. Memorize that. I wrote..

"I am the world's first and only peer reviewed rap artists. I do submit all of the lyrics to scientific experts to make sure that it's been fact checked properly, and then if anybody disagrees with the science that you take it up with me or the army of scientists that marches behind me. But in this case, it was quite easy because I learned most of the science from Dylan's baby, mama. I was on tour performing bunch of evolutionary biology themed rap songs in two thousand twelve I went to a lecture. It was a cognitive neuroscientist giving the talk she's giving a talk about the dynamic unconscious and the ways our brain produces behaviors where where of unaware of and how those mixed together a complex fascinating lecture that I had a really hard time paying attention to. Talk to where afterwards, Dr Berlin PHD. So I hit it with this pickup line at the end of talk. Really great lecture. Are you single? Luckily, I had had an opportunity to perform on the same stage before she gave her talk. So I had a non zero chance of success one thing that you another and Dylan was born just over two years ago our second child, so the show starts with a happy ending, but she can tell how that came together better than I can so please put you answer together for Oxford educated PHD, cognitive neuroscientists and current professor of psychiatry and cognitive neuroscience at Mount Sinai hospital and my uniform wife, Dr Heather..
