Dan Gilbert explains the neuro-biology of change and why "human beings are works in progress that mistakenly think they are finished".
Dan Siegel shows a simple model of the brain to distinguish the functions of the brain stem, limbic, the neo cortex, and the pre-frontal cortex (PFC).
David Rock explains why the rational is over-rated, and how you can manage an unhelpful limbic response which disables the PFC
Jill Bolte-Taylor explains how our right brain sees the world differently to the left, connecting better to our own limbic and to others.
VS Ramachandran describes mirror neurons which allow us to experience what others are feeling - the mechanics of empathy (limbic resonance).
Norman Doidge explains that neuroplasticity means the brain isn't "hard-wired". Developmental experiences literally change our brain structures.
