Annie Murphy Paul

From an interview in GQ: “We make better use of our cognitive resources, says Paul, when we use them in conjunction with “extra-neural” resources: our body (embodied cognition), our environment (situated cognition), and the people around us (distributed cognition). The brain evolved to move the body, to navigate through space, to interact with other people,” says Paul.
“Those are these human strengths that we’re totally putting aside when we focus on the brain and we think, ‘To get real thinking and real work done, I have to sit still, not talk to anybody, and just push my brain harder and harder.’ It’s just not working very well.”
