A new research led by Gregor Domes at the University of Germany shows how oxytocin is involved in reading the others’ mind.

Oxytocin appears to ease the processing of social information received through two sensory pathways: hearing and vision. This hormone also was found to regulate stress and fear reactivity, explaining the theory of mind by decreasing the social anxiety accompanying many social encounters, an acute symptom in autism.

The hormone that helps you read minds

We've long accepted that hormones can make you amorous, aggressive, or erratic. But lately neuroscience has been abuzz with evidence that the hormone oxytocin -- which also acts as a neuromodulator -- can enhance at least one cognitive power: the ability to understand the gist of what others are thinking.

Michael Rea -- Objects from untreated wood and memory

Michael Rea's works are evocative and rational responses to history. Constructed from untreated wood and memory, they invoke one simple axiomatic truth: fictions or established hearsay allow for flawed interpretations that lead to flawed results. Michael Rea creates something short of that outcome, the idea of an object that remains a dream. His temporal works are humane in scale acquiring their patinas naturally, through interaction, by touch. Offering simultaneity, they are a service to what could be and what never will.
