Emotions color our everyday individual existence and shape all aspects of our interpersonal and intellectual experiences. In this film, animations and MRI images introduce students to what we now know about the sub-cortical emotional circuits in the brain and chemical processes that produce our emotional responses and contribute to our decision making and mental health. Live action sequences, both in laboratory and real life situations, illustrate Dr. Knutson's research on risk taking and provide intriguing examples of the factors involved in the interplay of affect and reason in making choices.
Participants are welcome to bring their lunch.
