Psi Chi Distinguished Lecture

The Science of Inside Out

In this talk, I will detail the some of the science-based insights that led to elements of the film, Inside Out. I will focus in particular on four themes: that people are their emotions; that emotions guide our thought and memory; that emotions shape our social interactions; and that the good life requires a mixture of many emotions, both negative and positive.
