The 13th Annual WINS Breakfast featuring the 2019 Louise Eisenhardt Lecturer, will be held at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina, the AANS headquarters hotel. All are welcome to attend.
In today’s lightning-quick, smart-screen world, most of us are walking around unthinking, asleep and lost in routine. But today, leading neuroscientists, psychologists, and social scientists are mapping how the brain actually works — its strengths, weaknesses, biases and quirks. Maria Konnikova is translating insights from the frontiers of the mind into imminently readable, perspective-changing prose — both in her New Yorker blog and in her New York Times bestsellers. Her latest book, The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It … Every Time, is a compelling investigation into the minds, motives and methods of con artists. It is a careful, nuanced study of the art of persuasion and deception.
