The Physiology of Awe, July 28

Physiology of Awe

In the past five years, science has made great strides in better understanding the emotion of awe. UC Berkeley psychologist Craig L. Anderson will help us understand state-of-the-art findings about how awe promotes curiosity and pro-sociality, including the physiological processes that support these behaviors. We will explore important implications that awe research has for well-being interventions, the health of military veterans, and making outdoors programs more accessible.
