What Was I Thinking? Decision Making and the Brain

Why do we sometimes make bad decisions? We like to think we use logic to decide what to do. Research in neuroscience, psychology, and behavioral economics suggests we're less rational than we think. Through film clips, case studies, and group discussion, we'll explore how our brains integrate reason and emotion. We'll examine the decision making biases that come with being human and learn why groups sometimes make bad decisions.
