The Hidden Brain Series: We will be using material from the podcast “The Hidden Brain” by Shankar Vedantam. Participants will listen to a podcast episode prior to class and then we will have a guest speaker who will share some practical ways that phenomenon is experienced in the real world.
July 8th we will be discussing the Podcast Episode of Our Noisy Minds.
Psychologist Daniel Kahneman says there are invisible factors that distort our judgment. He calls these factors “noise.” The consequences can be found in everything from marriage proposals to medical diagnoses and prison sentences. This week on Hidden Brain, we consider how to identify noise in the world, and in our own lives.
