Are We The Enemy? The Neuroscience of Conflict and Empathy

Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 6:30pm to 8:00pm

Building N51
265 MASSACHUSETTS AVE, Cambridge, MA 02139

Join Dr. Emile Bruneau, Research Associate and Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication, and Dr. Karen Ross, Assistant Professor in the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, and Global Governance at UMass Boston, to explore how human cognitive habits encourage bias, separation, and conflict. Can thinking about our own and others' experiences of conflict help us create new neural pathways to support empathy and reconciliation? Learn what happens in our brains in a virtual experience like "The Enemy."

Free. No pre-registration necessary.

This program is co-sponsored by Radius and offered in conjunction with The Enemy, on view now.
