The Science of Evil: How the Circuits in our Brain Determine the Decisions We Make
Jared Schwartzer, Associate Professor of Psychology and Education; Chair of Neuroscience and Behavior
Advances in our understanding of the human brain have reshaped our thinking about good and evil. Why do we make the decisions we do? Are we in control of our actions? As we learn more about our brain’s ability to influence our moral reasoning, science is looking deeper into the extent to which we can or cannot be held accountable for our innate biology. This lecture will examine the underlying brain circuits that shape our decisions and question the use of brain science to influence our legal system.
