Abstract

Organisms that evolved nervous systems that predict, detect, and assess ecological dangers are at a distinct survival advantage compared to those with less sophisticated neural machinery. The strategies generated and honed by adaptive survival circuits in humans, which we call the survival optimization system (SOS), are controlled by both conscious and implicit systems.
