Perception - Beau Lotto, Ph.D. - Neuroscience

When you open your eyes, do you see the world as it really is? Do you see reality? It’s an age-old question that some of the greatest minds to walk the earth have grappled with for centuries.

Today, neuroscientist and world renowned expert in perception, Dr. Beau Lotto, reveals the science behind the ways our brain plays tricks on us while also presenting a revolutionary approach to applying these insights about perception to every aspect of our lives. 

We discuss:

  • Are we seeing the world as it really is?
  • How our assumptions control our perceptions and what we can do to break free from assumptions that don't serve us.
  • Why our not seeing reality is essential in our ability to adapt and grow in uncertainty.
  • Ways to reshape our perception with perception itself.
Every behavior is an attempt to respond to the inherent uncertainty of being alive. - Beau Lotto, Ph.D.

Beau’s goal for you? That you’ll walk away knowing less than you did entering into the conversation since nothing interesting begins with knowing. Listen in now.
