Affective Brain Lab | Principal Investigator: Tali Sharot

Affective Brain Lab | Principal Investigator: Tali Sharot | Spirituality & Counseling | Scoop.it

THE AFFECTIVE BRAIN LAB investigates how affect (the experience of emotion) affects human cognition and behavior in normal brain function and in affective disorders (such as depression and anxiety). It is interesting that Tali Sharot's premise of the book The Optimism Bias is directly opposite the assertion by some writers that we are wired to see the negative (see the work of Rick Hanson and Richard Mendius Buddha's Brain).


Curator's note...While this site isn't overtly about spirituality and counseling, it is an interesting site that explores the intersection of neuroscience and optimism (among other things). Well worth checking out.
