Rick Shenkman: How Human Instinct Shapes Elections says
In the midst of the next presidential election cycle, Rick Shenkman (formerly managing editor of Seattle’s KIRO-TV) analyzes the intersection of science and politics to explain how human instinct shapes voting decisions. Sports, natural disasters, and other factors change the way people think about the world–and those running for office. In an attempt to alter the course the “animal” side of the human brain tends to take, he’ll highlight the work of scientists who are pioneering new ways of understanding the world around us. (While he’s at it, he’ll also explain how to take control of these instincts to make the brain work in our favor during stressful times like election season.)
