  • who among us has the best right parahippocampal gyrus?

    I ranked myself 23rd. The 22 ahead of me know who you are. The others probably do not have a clue.

    There was nothing very interesting in Dr. Katherine P. Rankin’s study of sarcasm — at least, nothing worth your important time. All she did was use an MRI to find the place in the brain where the ability to detect sarcasm resides. But then, you probably already knew it was in the right parahippocampal gyrus.

    What you may not have realised is that perceiving sarcasm, the smirking put-down that buries its barb by stating the opposite, requires a nifty mental trick that lies at the heart of social relations.

    “A lot of the social cognition we take for granted and learn through childhood, the ability to appreciate that someone else is being ironic or sarcastic or angry—the so-called theory of mind that allows us to get inside someone else’s head—is characteristically lost very early in the course of frontotemporal dementia,” said Dr. Bradley F. Boeve, a behavioural neurologist at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.

                There are threads out of left field, threads that could only be considered a 'tangent' because both words start with 'T', and then there are kjoe threads.

                  Do you realize just how empowering it feels to be able to post genuinely stupid shit, and then accuse people who call me on it of having an defective right parahippocampal gyrus?

                  It is probably more important to me, than most other people.

                          At least Skippy's right parahippocampal gyrus is working.
