Subtitle is "Neuroscientists discover a mechanism for brain-wide communication when selecting a route toward a destination."
I used to carefully think through where I would drive (like 10 years ago) because if I started driving I wouldn't know where the heck to turn, etc.. I had to actually pre-map things out with a map or printed google map directions. You know that step-by-step print out they used to provide (maybe they still do?)
In any case, it's gotten really bad. I start driving - like totally cavalier like I know what the fuck I'm doing now. I have no clue half the time what my destination is. But I know within seconds I can get my phone routed somewhere by saying "Navigate to starbucks".
Problem is, like many other things that comes with driving, I get extremely frustrated when my cell signal is too weak to communicate to Google. It actually drives me bonkers. My wife is always telling me to route before I start driving. 99/100 times I will ignore that sage advice and get frustrated instead. So yeah, I really need to exercise my "prefrontal-thalamo-hippocampal" in like a Yoga class or something.
Remember the first time as a kid when you'd been driven everywhere and you're told to walk to school the first time? Unless you'd been paying attention at 8 or 9, you had no idea how to get there.
I can't imagine what life would be like if I hadn't visited most metropolitan areas before the smartphone.
As a remote worker, I’ve often wondered if I’d be more productive and able to “think more deeply” if I just went to the same coffee shop every morning at the exact same time, rather than stop and decide where to go.
Strictly adhering to a specific route seems to have worked for Kant. 
That seems highly unlikely to me. Evolution isn’t fast enough to have evolved separate systems in the time since we first started separating “personal” from “work” (at best a few thousand years, more likely at most a few centuries ago in my layman’s estimate)
