“The Hidden Brain”
The hidden brain shapes our behavior, our choices, and the course of our relationships. But unconscious biases don’t just live in our individual brains; they also influence the success or failure of our organizations. In Shankar Vedantam’s presentation, as in his book The Hidden Brain: How Our Unconscious Minds Elect Presidents, Control Markets, Wage Wars, and Save Our Lives, he reveals these unconscious patterns and he lays out ways in which we can avoid the mistakes they often cause.
Vedantam is NPR’s social science correspondent and the host of the Hidden Brain podcast and radio show. His goal is to help people think about the world in new and interesting ways. He is endlessly fascinated by research in fields ranging from psychology and history to sociology and economics. In 2009-2010, Vedantam served as a fellow at the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University.
