Do you trust your gut?

Some of the ANTs are there for a real reason. I mentioned “survivor brain” last week. Imagine your ancestor, exposed in the bush. That sound of a twig breaking could signal a number of things.

In neuroscience, this is the inner critic, but guess what, she’s our “survivor brain.” I’ll have more about that on Thursday’s #NSCJournalPrompt.
