Uri Hasson is the neuroscientist at Princeton University who several years ago did the research using MRIs showing the brain entrainment that happens between a storyteller and a listener.
This was breakthrough research into the neuroscience of storytelling. Now here is his latest TED talk where he shares his additional research on the topic.
Hasson talks about expanding the research beyond 1 storyteller to 1 listener to 1 storyteller to 5 listeners and what they discovered.
He also discusses more about the brain entrainment that happens, how meaning is created, and what happens when people from different cultures listen to the same story.
It's fascinating and you will want to take notes. In fact, you'll have to go slowly through the video because Hasson has a strong accent and it's sometimes hard to comprehend what he is saying. Kind of proving his points in a way.
So go grab this and bring it into your stash on the neuroscience of storytelling.
