We size up people and situations every day, making judgments in less time than it takes to blink. Should I trust this woman? Is that man competent? Is this person telling the truth? Scientists are finding that how our brains perceive and process information—neurocognitive processes involving the interaction and interplay of genes, socialization, and environmental stimuli—affects the beliefs we hold and the assumptions we make. Dive into the exploding field of decision-making and the nuances that influence everything from job interviews to presidential elections and more.
More about this season of Adult Offerings at the Museum of Science:
Modern science has demonstrated remarkable and unlikely connections between seemingly disparate phenomena and ideas. The notion that everything is connected—found in ancient manuscripts and the most cutting-edge science—is intuitive and yet utterly mindbending. Join us in connecting the dots—between food, art, human behavior, and the sciences.
We are constantly adding to our seasonal lineup of special guest lectures, panel discussions, podcasts, social event, and more. To stay in touch with the latest Museum Happenings, visit mos.org/events.
The Museum takes a hands-on approach to science, engineering and technology, attracting about 1.5 million visitors a year via its programs and 700 interactive exhibits. Founded in 1830, the Museum was first to embrace all the sciences under one roof. Highlights include the Thomson Theater of Electricity, Charles Hayden Planetarium, Mugar Omni Theater, Gordon Current Science & Technology Center, 3-D Digital Cinema and Butterfly Garden. Reaching 25,000 teens a year worldwide via the Intel Computer Clubhouse Network, the Museum also leads a 10-year, $41 million National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network of science museums. The Museum’s “Science Is an Activity” exhibit plan has been awarded many NSF grants and influenced science centers worldwide. Its National Center for Technological Literacy® aims to enhance knowledge of engineering and technology for people of all ages and inspire the next generation of engineers, inventors, and scientists. The Museum is ranked #3 by Parents Magazine in its list of the country’s “Ten Best Science Centers. For more information, visit mos.org.
