Crab mentality - Wikipedia

While any one crab could easily escape, [2] its efforts will be undermined by others, ensuring the group's collective demise.

Spreading activation - Wikipedia

CentralNotice From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to navigation Jump to search Spreading activation is a method for searching associative networks, biological and artificial neural networks , or semantic networks . The search process is initiated by labeling a set of source nodes (e.g. concepts in a semantic network) with weights or "activation" and then iteratively propagating or "spreading" that activation out to other nodes linked to the source nodes. Most often these "weights" are real values that decay as activation propagates through the network. When the weights are discrete this process is often referred to as marker passing. Activation may originate from alternate paths, identified by distinct markers, and terminate when two alternate paths reach the same node. However brain studies show that several different brain areas play an important role in sema...
