The brain is literally the most amazing thing. Two hemispheres, three pounds, wired together uniquely for each individual and extremely complex. So complex that we are still far from a full understanding of it.
We do have some valuable knowledge about the brain. The ‘new brain’, the outside bit, is the most recent part of the brain to evolve; it is the rational, logical processing machine that we are very aware of and use a lot. The ‘mid-brain’ is the part that can be associated with our emotions and emotional impulses. Finally, there is the ‘old brain’. The old brain is the bit that worries about us staying alive. It is ultimately concerned with our survival and we can’t make a decision without the old brain agreeing to it.
When not working Joel enjoys hiking, climbing, snowboarding, reading, films and music. Also very keen on good food and drink - living in Japan much of the time helps in that respect.
