The Science of Fear

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone should watch this course. Although I am no stranger to the function of the autonomic nervous system, I found this lesson enlightening and informative. In this time of political upheaval and, with a dearth of truth-tellers on both sides, it is imperative we all examine our own responses to the untruths we hear. I will be paying more attention to what I hear and I will, from now on, fact check all I hear. A great lesson...thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Information Much food for thought. Some graphics would have been nice. The content was excellent. Don't move the camera back and forth so much, distracting.

The Science of Fear
1: The Science of Fear

Our brains are amazing organs, giving us the ability of abstract thought, language, intellectual curiosity, and more. Yet, when faced with scary or threatening situations, our brains have cognitive biases which cause blind spots, and we lose our ability to judge reality, think rationally, or consider risk management options. Join Dr. Margee Kerr, a sociologist at the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania, to delve into the body’s neurophysiological system that keeps you alive but can also sometimes land you in harm’s way.
