The Neuroscience of Conflict: Understanding Dissent in the Brain
Date Recorded: May 16th, 2007
|This edition of Canadian Voices features 2 talks from Salon Voltaire, an intellectual entertainment series held at Toronto’s Gladstone Hotel. The first half of the programme features Ariel Garten, psychotherapist, artist and author,who discusses The Neuroscience of Conflict: Understanding Dissent in the Brain.
Salon Voltaire was created to place the exchange of ideas at the centre of a new form of entertainment. The inspiration for the production of these events came form the organisers’ experiences abroad, and their love for comedy, debate and ideas. Their aim is to transcend entrenched intellectual boundaries, to create a more inclusive public discourse and to establish an innovative new form of nightlife.
|Ariel Garten is a practicing psychotherapist and artist, whose intellectual focus is the intersection of science-particularly neuroscience- and the arts. Her work in fashion, performance, and installation have been presented at the AGO, RPI New York and Banff Center for the Arts.
