The more we learn about processes along the consciousness continuum and their key role in guiding consumer choices, the clearer the need for interdisciplinary collaboration becomes. Consumer researchers, cognitive neuroscientists and other neurobiologists could team up to explore the mechanisms at ...
According to one of the researchers, Dr. Aude Oliva from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology: "The fundamental questions cognitive neuroscientists and computer scientists seek to answer are similar,.

“It's really tricky knowing when to laugh,” says Scott Weems, cognitive neuroscientist and author of “Ha! The Science of When We Laugh and Why.” “It's frightening for some people because it is a sensitive topic.” One thing to remember, he says: “There have been studies that looked at jokes that insulted ...
