Brain-Apparatus Communication and the journal-脑器交互学国际期刊

What’s “brain-apparatus communication”?

l  First, our brain is based on the body for various supports

Mind-body, Body-mind communications


Ø The physiological brain is not isolated, but communicate with the internal “organs” all the time

Ø Healthy brain relays on “harmonious communication” thus get enough support from the organs

Ø Brain science should take care of the internal environment which support our brain

l  Second, we are curious animals

Communicate with the environment all the time, want to understand and dominate the world

Face world challenge, update our brain

Ø Complex and dynamic environment challenge the brain, develop and regulate the brain

Understand and beautify the world

Ø Communication promotes learning, increases goodwill and friendship

Ø Interaction may produce better technology and products

l  Third, we need both of the above: communicate with internal and outworld simultaneously

ü  well state and harmonic interaction make us physiological health

ü  health let us actively explore the outside to get more resources (psychological well)

ü  and more resources promote physiological health further (positive feedback)

Summary (3 interactions)

u BAC3: BAC2*BAC1 (integration)

u BAC2: brain-non-living apparatus (Brain-computer interface etc.)

u BAC1: brain-living apparatus (Psychosomatic medicine etc.)
