Read the excerpt from the Be Cool section of "Everyday Survival." In the past few decades, technologies like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have allowed researchers such as Bruce McEwen at Rockefeller University to demonstrate that stress changes the shape and chemistry of the brain, resulting in trouble remembering, difficulty completing tasks, and altered behavior. In effect, losing your cool makes you stupid. Which answer most accurately explains the meaning of the word stupid as it is used in the excerpt?
