Wood calls attention to the neurology of habits, and exactly how they have a recognizable neural personal. Whenever a response has been learned by you you employ your associative basal ganglia, which involves the prefrontal cortex and facilitates working memory which means you can make decisions. As you do it again the behavior in the same context, the given information is reorganized in your brain.
It shifts to the sensory electric motor loop that facilitates representations of cue-response organizations, no keeps information on the target, or end result much longer. This shift from goal directed to context cue response really helps to describe why our habits are rigid behaviors. There’s a dual mind at play, Wood explains.
When our intentional mind is engaged, we act in ways that meet an result we desire and typically we’re alert to our intentions. Intentions can change quickly because we can make mindful decisions in what we want to do in the foreseeable future that may be different from the past. However, when the habitual brain is engaged, our practices function beyond awareness mainly. We can not easily articulate how exactly we do our habits or why we do them, and they change through repeated experience gradually.
