Triune Brain Neomammalian (Human): corresponds to cortex Paleomammalian (Mammalian): roughly corresponds to limbic system including amygdala Reptilian: roughly corresponds to brain stem MacLean, P. D. 1990. The Triune Brain in Evolution: Role in Paleocerebral Functions. New York: Springer.

2010 Suzanne Kryder 12 Brain-based Skill #2: Mind over Matter We create non-reactivity by developing circuits in our brain that enable the lower affectgenerating circuits (limbic amygdala) to be regulated by the higher modulating ones (prefrontal cortex or PFC). Mindful awareness

may directly influence nonreactivity by altering the connections between the PFC and limbic area. --Siegel, The Mindful Brain, 2007 2010 Suzanne Kryder 13 Mindfulness Practices Feet and Seat Warm Sandy Beach Breath Awareness
