about impulsing

Impulsing is the name of a model that shows how the nervous system works, at the lay level. It shows how we can trace impulses, in the form of impulse trails, as they flash through the pathways of the nervous system. With impulsing, we can describe the specific monitoring and resolving work being done, as trails are formed, and as they diverge and converge in the system’s pathways.

The model focuses on the work impulsing does as four areas of the system neuroscientists associate with consciousness, or conscious work are energized. We’ll use impulsing to show how, in these conscious pathways, we experience an instant of sensation; how it’s recorded into a network of records; how we derive thought from that network; and how we generate the tension patterns in the muscle, we call feelings.

After describing the core concept of impulsing, and outlining the work it does in the conscious pathways, the model goes on to focus on how the tension patterns, we call our feelings, are formed and released. We experience this reversal of tension as a kind of balance, we call emotional balance.
