We are practically and predictably irrational creatures. The great majority of the decisions that we take are based on irrational motives rather than rational analysis. Why this is happening? What are the forces influencing the way that we decide upon personal, professional, and social issues? What can we do in general in order to improve the way that we take decisions? All these and many more questions will be discussed in this open lecture. The aim of the lecture is to make us more aware about the factors influencing our ability to take decisions. The open lecture will be based on evidence provided by behavioural and cognitive neuroscience.
