What Was I Thinking? Decision Making and the Brain  

We like to think we use logic to decide what to do. But evolving research from neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics suggests we're less rational than we think. We are subject to many mental limitations and traps. This course explores what really happens as we make decisions. Through films clips, exercises, case studies, and group discussion, we'll explore how our brains, often unconsciously, integrate reason and emotion. We'll examine decision making biases that come with being human. We'll also look at how we can improve our decision making, both as individuals and in groups.
