Diversity in Neuroscience
Leading up to the discussion with David Brooks, join in a dialogue about the intersection of diversity, inclusion and neuroscience led by Janet Reid, PhD. Research has demonstrated that diverse and inclusive teams can better solve complex problems and be more innovative than homogeneous ones. Yet, our brain has a protective mechanism that may impede a desire to proactively seek diversity and inclusion. Can new neural pathways be created that mitigate this?
