'The Science of Consequences'

Feb 7, 2013

In the course of a day you make lots of decisions and each one has a consequence.  Sometimes very trivial, other times the consequence may be profound.  Today on Central Standard, we look into the subject of the science of consequences with Susan Schneider, author of The Science of Consequences: How They Affect Genes, Change the Brain, and Impact Our World.

We look at negative and positive outcomes to our behavior and see how “enriched  environments” may be able to reverse damage to the brain. Find out how our gene pool isn’t unlike that of a yeast, a single cell amoeba, mice or even a banana.  We also learn about how the consequences relate parenting, marriage, work relationships and addiction among other things.
