BEYOND THE BRAIN Interdisciplinary conversations about science and society Decision Making in a Creative Business Is there only one way to make a decision? How can two people come to different conclusions about the same scenario? Are the decisions we make influenced by our environment or are we wired to ultimately arrive at a certain conclusion? Through examining various perspectives around how decisions are both made and implemented - from business to science to the world around us, we invite you to be a part of the conversation that bridges science and society. Please join the Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute as we host an exciting and thought provoking conversation between Daphna Shohamy, PhD, Professor of Psychology and Principal Investigator at Columbia's Zuckerman Institute and Michele Ganeless, Producer and former President of Comedy Central. In this exclusive discussion, our speakers will examine the science and process of decision making as it relates to any business or professional setting. They will examine the role that social decision making has, as well as debate the impact of data versus instinct. This event will be hosted on Columbia University's new Manhattanville Campus. The goal of both the campus and this lecture series is to gather creative minds from across many disciplines and allow for an open forum to collaborate in research and study as well as create conversation and change.
