"The Neuroscience of Trust": Ann Arbor Templetonians.

  community member   < less

Trust is fundamental to the survival of any social species - including humans. It is clear that a lack of trust underlies all of our social ills and global problems. At the biological level, why did trust evolve? At the neuroscience level, what are the hormones and circuits that are related to trust? At the social level, can trust become contagious? Can those hormonal responses and neural circuits be strengthened so we are more trusting and fearless? Come join us to discuss the latest research that says, yes, you can develop more trust and facilitate more trust in your community and on the planet.
