The Lost Lectures

Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain

In her enlightening talk she discusses how our fear systems and reward systems connect with higher centres to shape how positively (or negatively) we perceive life.

She uses the analogy of a river carving out a valley to describe how it is that we end up thinking a certain way, and discusses ways that we can ‘change’ the way we think using some well established methods.

 

Speaker Prof. Elaine Fox

Prof Elaine Fox is a world-leading experimental psychologist and expert in the science of optimism. She has researched widely on the science of emotions and always been fascinated by why some people see the glass as half full, while for others it’s the other way around. As well as a huge list of academic papers to her name, her book “Rainy Brain, Sunny Brain” explores the neuroscience behind the new science of optimism and pessimism.
