Mentalize redirects here. For the second solo album of Brazilian vocalist/pianist Andre Matos, see Mentalize (album). In psychology, mentalization is the ability to understand the mental state, of oneself or others, that underlies overt behaviour. Mentalization can be seen as a form of imaginative mental activity that lets us perceive and interpret human behaviour in terms of intentional mental states (e.g., needs, desires, feelings, beliefs, goals, purposes, and reasons). It is sometimes described as "understanding misunderstanding." Another term that David Wallin has used for mentalization is "Thinking about thinking". Mentalization can occur either automatically or consciously. Mentalization ability, or mentalizing, is weakened by intense emotion. While the Theory of Mind has been discussed in philosophy at least since Descartes, the concept of mentalization emerged in psychoanalytic literature in the late 1960s, and became empirically tested in 1983 when Heinz Wimmer and Josef Perner ran the ...
Objective: This study focuses on cognitive prerequisites for the development of Theory-of-mind (ToM), the ability to impute mental states to self and others in young adults with Alström syndrome (AS). AS is a recessively inherited ciliopathic disorder causing progressive hearing loss and juvenile blindness, both of which affect communication, as well as other dysfunctions. Two cognitive abilities were considered; Phonological working memory and Executive functions (EF), both of importance in speech development . Methods: Ten individuals (18-37 years) with AS, and 20 nondisabled individuals matched for age, gender and educational level participated. Sensory functions were measured. Information about motor functions and communicative skills was obtained from questionnaire data. ToM was assessed using Happés strange stories, verbal ability by a vocabulary test, phonological WM by an auditory presented serial-recall task and EF by tests of updating and inhibition. Results: The AS group performed
Successful socialization requires the ability of understanding of others mental states. This ability called as mentalization (Theory of Mind) may become deficient and contribute to everyday life difficulties in multiple sclerosis. We aimed to explore the impact of brain pathology on mentalization performance in multiple sclerosis. Mentalization performance of 49 patients with multiple sclerosis was compared to 24 age- and gender matched healthy controls. T1- and T2-weighted three-dimensional brain MRI images were acquired at 3Tesla from patients with multiple sclerosis and 18 gender- and age matched healthy controls. We assessed overall brain cortical thickness in patients with multiple sclerosis and the scanned healthy controls, and measured the total and regional T1 and T2 white matter lesion volumes in patients with multiple sclerosis. Performances in tests of recognition of mental states and emotions from facial expressions and eye gazes correlated with both total T1-lesion load and ...

Methods A population of healthy subjects (n=4150, age range: 50-60 years) completed a clinical and neuropsychological evaluation including the Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (RMET), a widely used ToM task. From this group, we recruited a low-RMET group (n=83) including subjects with RMET scores lower than 2 SDs but an otherwise normal neuropsychological evaluation and a control group. All subjects underwent evaluation at baseline and after 2 years.. ...
The function of memory is not only to recall the past, but also to form and update models of our experiences and use these models to navigate the world. Perhaps the most complex environment for humans to navigate is the social one. Social dynamics are extraordinarily complex, unstructured, labile and difficult to predict. However, successful navigation of the social world is essential to forming and maintaining interpersonal relationships. Little research has examined the role that memory plays in social behavior and interpersonal sensitivity. There is growing evidence that recalling personally experienced events (autobiographical memory) and inferring the mental states of others (mentalizing or theory-of-mind) share an extensive functional neuroanatomy. The functional overlap between autobiographical memory and mental inference has been hypothesized to facilitate the integration of personal and interpersonal information. This integration may provide a means for personal experiences to become social
Using a novel eye-tracking test, we recently showed that great apes anticipate that other individuals will act according to false beliefs. This finding suggests that, like humans, great apes understand others false beliefs, at least in an implicit way. One key question raised by our study is why apes have passed our tests but not previous ones. In this article, we consider this question by detailing the development of our task. We considered 3 major differences in our task compared with the previous ones. First, we monitored apes eye movements, and specifically their anticipatory looks, to measure their predictions about how agents will behave ...

If we mentalize about each other by imagining ourselves experiencing an event as another person and then predicting our own mental states in that situation, how do we make reasonable predictions about our hypothetical thoughts and feelings in the first place? To use ourselves as a proxy for others mental states, we must not only be able to imagine ourselves as another person but also be able to simulate richly enough to provoke in us a concomitant set of feelings and thoughts. That is, we must first conjure up the actual feeling states that accompany a particular experience or think the thoughts that might arise in a given scenario before we can proceed to extend those simulated feelings and thoughts to another person.. Surprisingly little cognitive work has addressed the question of how humans predict their own mental states, despite reasonable arguments that this skill represents an important line separating human cognition from the mental systems of other primates (Gilbert 2007). Do ...
The main aim of this review is to provide a broad overview of social-cognitive theory and research applied to violent and sexual offending behaviour. The review suggests that there is some variation in the adoption of social-cognitive theory and methods to differing offending behaviours. The violent offending literature, for example, has many examples of novel social-cognitive research methods used to examine the cognitions of highly aggressive men while the child sexual offending literature has very few examples of such social-cognitive techniques. The advantages of adopting a social-cognitive perspective to differing offending behaviours is examined and discussed alongside suggestions for future research in the social-cognitive domain ...
One major motivation for CRS is a functionalist (q.v.) approach to the mind generally. Functionalism says that what makes a state a mental state is the role it plays in interacting with other mental states in a creatures psychology. This gives rise to a weak form of CRS: a state is meaningful (i.e. hassome meaning or other) by virtue of the fact that it plays a certain role in a persons psychology. This form offers a reply to theories that insist a mind requires something more. for example, Searle (1980) has argued that computers cannot understand language in virtue of their programs or, more generally, by manipulating symbols in a certain way. He rests his case on a thought experiment, the Chinese Room (q.v.), in which a monolingual English speaker manipulates Chinese symbols by following rules that dont require him to understand the meanings of the symbols he is manipulating. The rules are so devised that he produces sensible responses in Chinese to any Chinese inputs. Searle says that ...

Whilst she attended a series of mind power seminars and took mind power treatments twice a week, she realised the improvement in her body. Her ascites dramatically disappeared, her tumour maker that had been moving upward levelled off and finally declined. That was so incredible that her doctor published a paper in a medical journal as a case of natural degeneration of cancer. She was convinced that mind power would be going to heal her cancer completely. Thus, she followed pieces of advice from Ms. Nonaka telling that forgetting own illness is the best medicine and healing someone heals own illness. Accordingly, she dedicated to heal other patients. As her tumour maker remained the average, her struggle agains cancer came to the end. Her doctor was also sure that mind power fully healed her cancer, recommending her to inform the truth to other people waiting for the power. ...
Mind mapping, for the uninitiated, is a visual method for organizing ideas -- a sort of project management tool for the mind. It often involves lots of thoughts in bubbles connected by lines. The language used to describe the elements of a mind map parallels that used by software outliners, except mind maps dont have the rigid vertical form outlines have. Mind maps have an air of horizontal chaos about them.
Indriyas, A Prolongation Of The Mind Indriyas are objectified desires. Will to see is the eye. Will to hear is the ear. The Indriyas (senses) have two states, static and dynamic. When the desire begins to operate, the Indriyas are put in motion. This is the dynamic state. As soon as the desire is gratified, the Indriyas shrink through Tripti (satisfaction). This is the static or passive state. Mind and Indriyas are one. Indriya is a prolongation of the mind. The sea is fed by the rivers; the sea cannot exist without the rivers. Even so, mind is fed by Indriyas and cannot exist without Indriyas. If you have controlled the Indriyas, you have already controlled the mind. Indriya is another name for mind. Mind is a mass of Indriyas. Mind is a higher power than the Indriyas. Mind is a consolidated Indriya. Indriya is mind in manifestation. Just as a minister obeys the king, so also, the five Jnana-Indriyas act in accordance with the dictates of the mind. Indriyas represent backwaters. The desire in ...
The recent movie "Transcendence" will not be troubling the sci-fi canon of classics, if the reviews are anything to go by. But its central plot device - "uploading" a human consciousness to a computer - remains both a central aspiration of transhumanists, and a source of queasy fascination to the rest of us. The idea is that someones mind is simply a computer programme, that in the future could be run on a much more powerful computer than a brain, just as one might run an old arcade game on a modern PC in emulation mode. "Mind uploading" has a clear appeal for people who wish to escape the constraints of our flesh and blood existence, notably the constraint of our inevitable mortality.. In this post I want to consider two questions about mind uploading, from my perspective as a scientist. Im going to use as an operational definition of "uploading a mind" the requirement that we can carry out a computer simulation of the activity of the brain in question that is indistinguishable in its outputs ...
On April 2010, she took a mind power treatment that improved the brightness in her sight and reduced the blindness. She was so amazed with the fact that this improvement was happening by a single mind power treatment. She used to cover her room with two thick curtains all the time and wear sunglasses even in the room due to that her eyes were sensitive to the light. However, a series of mind power treatments reduced the dazzling in her eyes and finally she did not need her curtains in the room. Nowadays she is capable of driving a car in the night and her eyes do not bother her the daily life at all. ...

Cognitive psychologists study the human mind. "Cognitive" comes from the Latin verb cognoscere, to know, so cognitive psychologists study how people know things - how we see, hear, acquire information, remember, believe, understand, speak, think, solve problems, make decisions and much more. As a memory researcher, Tulving explores how people learn and know facts, and how they remember their experiences. Knowing and remembering are very important facets of mind, and for Tulving the human mind is by far the biggest and most complex unsolved mystery in the universe.. Sometimes people wonder what a "mind" is. Tulving believes only a life can have a mind. To him a rock cannot have a mind. But does a virus or a blade of grass have a mind? He defines the occurrence of mind in living organisms as a point in evolution when a living thing does something without expressing any overt behaviour. For instance, when you are remembering something, you are doing something, but your body is not outwardly doing ...
Now, how likely is it that minds should exist on the assumption that the basic causes are mental. Pretty likely, it seems to me. If theism is true, then from what we know of ourselves as rational creatures, we should expect that a rational being in charge of everything would create rational beings with whom He or She could communicate. But what if God does not exist, and the basic causes were non-mental. How there can be minds is at best difficult and at most impossible to explain. A lot of things had to happen just right in the development of the human brain in order for reason to be possible, if it is even possible at all. It looks, therefore, like the existence of creaturely minds confirms theism even if we cannot show that, for example, dualism is true. The existence of creaturely reason, therefore, confirms the mental character of the universe ...

Before we can leave the subject of attack by incarnate human beings, we must consider the subject of etheric projection. In this case not only is the mind at work, but also something which is pretty nearly physical; sufficiently physical, at any rate, to leave bruises on the flesh of the victim, throw the furniture about, or at least make a considerable amount of noise. Where such manifestations take place, it is obvious that we are dealing with something more substantial than the mind, for although mind can influence mind, and through it the body to an extent to which in the present state of our knowledge it is difficult to set limits, mind cannot manipulate matter directly: that is to say, you cannot smash a window by means of a thought. There must be some physical vehicle that can be manipulated by the mind if effects are to be wrought on the physical plane. The living body is such an instrument; it is manipulated by the mind every time a voluntary movement takes place, and the operations of ...
Whenever I look at an object I see a word that tells me what that object is and, in more cases than not, a word that describes the color of the object. I have been diagnosed with ADHD by medical professionals. Anyway, when I look at, for example, a jacket, I see the word in my mind: "jacket." When I see a uniquely colored object, such as a red jacket, I see in my mind: "red jacket." I dont do this intentionally. When Im familiar with what an object is or what the name of it is, Ill automatically recall it when I see it.. As for numbers, when I see a group of objects that are the same, I see them as numbered. Of course, this is assuming that there is a reasonable amount of them and that they are not miniscule. Each of them has its own number and I sort them into groups that way. What may be the cause of this?. ...

Close your eyes and think of nothing if your mind is racing and you have the entire weeks intinery going through your mind you are not relaxed at least not relaxed enough to connect. This is what I call gardeners meditation if you have a whole load of thoughts zipping around your head, then its time to tackle them one by one. Get a piece of paper and write down each thought in your head on the paper, it may take time but after a while your mind will quieten down and you will be ready to relax. Once your mind is still and there are no thoughts buzzing around, just exist. Listen to the sounds of outside and concentrate on them, use your ears as a guide to hone in on your inner self. Then use your mind to explore your body in order to feel and explore every part of you inside and out ...

That kind of event is an event that links the mind of the individual with their higher mind. Many people have awareness of this and yes as some people deduce on the internet, what were previously hidden truths about this reality are unveiled to the general population. Still, all knowledge is coded to some degree that it is being transferred in a secondary term and so the knowledge requires ones own mind to work like a lock and the piecing together of various interconnected pieces of information as the key. The idea here is that the information will be plain to see for some yet obscured and confusing for others. Some will be empowered by it and others will be depressed. This is the nature of the human mind and the difference in all the preparations for this time is that the majority will know the truth and live in harmony while only a small percentage simply doesnt get it.. This is the spooky outcome that people are observing, and the more they focus on reducing that, the more power that ...

I often see people with this pattern: judging their mums behaviours but in the end they become just like them. So: it is not about the mum but what one judges in oneself and projects into the closest woman in a womans life (usually the mum, but this can also be applied into other members of the family). The more I fight with myself, the more I become what I fear. This is now clear to me: because the mind does not differenciate the right/wrong --- but such thoughts will be the starting point for my actions. Once I see how the system works (we are all systems...) I am able to stop participating in it. Each one is responsible for ones creation ...
