September's special guest on BrainTalk Radio is Elliot Berkman.

Elliot Berkman is an Assistant Professor of Psychology and Director of the Social and Affective Neuroscience Lab at the University of Oregon. He received a BA and MA from Stanford, and his Ph.D. from UCLA in 2010. His laboratory studies the motivational, cognitive, and neural systems involved goal pursuit. Ongoing work in the lab examines topics such as: how smokers attempting to quit deal with cravings for cigarettes and which brain systems are involved; the neural systems involved in successfully reducing cravings for tempting foods; and whether self-control can be improved over time with training. Dr. Berkman has also won several teaching awards and has written a textbook, A Conceptual Guide to Statistics Using SPSS, published in 2010 by SAGE.

Join us and learn:

  • Neuroscience studies can change the way we think about motivation and goals
  • Information from the brain has the power to predict future outcomes (sometimes) better than other types of information (e.g., self-report)
