4 u math phobics!

the reason you hate math is that you hate it, and you hate it because you don't have math-brain-circuits.

the brain needs the right ingredients to do what it does. according to this source for the brain to work at a new challenge it needs to recombine familiar activity patterns in new ways relative to creating entirely novel patterns.

this is interesting:
The harder-to-learn patterns were different from any of the pre-existing patterns, whereas the easier-to-learn patterns were combinations of pre-existing brain patterns. Because the existing brain patterns likely reflect how the neurons are interconnected, the results suggest that the connectivity among neurons shapes learning.
calculus anyone?
