“How Emotions Are Made did what all great books do. It took a subject I thought I understood and turned my understanding upside down.”
Lisa Feldman Barrett is one of the world’s most respected scientists in the field of human emotion. How Emotions Are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain radically changed our understanding of the way we feel. In a rare Australasian appearance Lisa discusses the way that culture, environment and personal history create emotion. Her research has vast implications for almost every aspect of our lives: from legal systems, to parenting to the way we experience an arts festival.
