Event description
'How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain'

About this Event

Learn how emotions are made and get an insight into the secret life of the brain, with Canadian writer and psychologist, Dr Lisa Feldman Barrett.

One of the world’s most respected scientists in the field of human emotion. Her book, 'How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain', has radically changed our understanding of the way we feel.

In a rare Australasian appearance, Lisa will discuss the way that culture, environment and personal history create emotion. Her research has vast implications for almost every aspect of our lives: from legal systems, to parenting to the way we understand the human mind and experience life.

Dr Feldman Barrett is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital in Psychiatry and Radiology. She received a NIH Director's Pioneer Award for her research on emotion in the brain. She now lives in Boston.

This public lecture, in collaboration with the New Zealand Writers Festival and the University of Waikato will be held at the Gallagher Academy of Performing Arts at the University of Waikato in Hamilton, starting at 6.15pm. Complimentary drinks and nibbles served from 5.30pm. Free parking is available on campus via Gate 2B, Knighton Road, Hamilton.
