Wired for Change: The Neuroscience of Social Progress

Wired for Change: The Neuroscience of Social Progress

Thu, March 29, 2012; 14:30 - 16:00

Location: Lecture Theatre 5
Do our brains get in the way of solving complex social challenges? We build our view of the world on relatively simple interactions, but from this emerges extremely complex net behaviour. Our brains are like plastic, able to be moulded and shaped. Humans can and should learn how to navigate this behavioural system to create the world we want. Using key examples and a view into stunning, state of the art technologies, leading neuroscientists will share how behaviour is linked to emotional stimulus and how to establish principles of conflict resolution that have a “grounded truth” in neuroscience principles.
