“The Neuroscience of You: How Understanding Your Neural Lens Can Help You Connect with Others”

We are living through a social paradox in which an expanded appreciation for the importance of diversity co-exists with tense divisions between people who believe different things. How might knowing the ways each unique brain understands the world help us to connect with others who work differently? In this lecture, I’ll share some examples from my new book, The Neuroscience of You, which was written to help readers understand how their biology and experiences shape the lens through which they perceive things, including others.
