On Sunday, September 21, Dr. Laurie Santos will talk about what cognitive science research tells us for how to live a happier, more rational life. You’ll leave with some practical empirically informed tips for how to live better.
Laurie Santos is a professor of psychology and cognitive science at Yale University. Her research explores the evolutionary origins of the human mind by comparing the cognitive abilities of humans and non-human animals, including primates and canines. She is the Director of the Canine Cognition Lab at Yale. She has been a featured TED speaker, and has been listed in Popular Science Magazine as one of their “Brilliant 10” young minds in 2007, and in Time Magazine as a “Leading Campus Celebrity” in 2013.
