Lisa Feldman Barrett, Ph.D., is among the top one percent most-cited scientists in the world for her revolutionary research in psychology and neuroscience. She is a University Distinguished Professor of Psychology at Northeastern University, with appointments at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital. She is also Chief Science Officer for the Center for Law, Brain & Behavior at Harvard University.
In addition to her latest book Seven and a Half Lessons About the Brain, Dr. Barrett has published over 240 peer-reviewed, scientific papers appearing in Science, Nature Neuroscience, and other top journals in psychology and cognitive neuroscience, as well as six academic volumes published by Guilford Press. She has also given a popular TED talk with nearly 6 million views.
Her list of accomplishments goes on and on, but we'll let this episode speak for the rest of them. She joins Dr. Peeke for an incredibly engaging conversation on how our brains work: the plasticity of our brains as resiliency, how the brain changes after dealing with trauma, how our brains work with other brains to feel empathy, and MUCH much more.
