Robert Sapolsky | Big Think
Ever hear the expression “it’s all in your mind”? Well, according to Robert Sapolsky all the negativity in the world might all be coming from one part of the brain: the frontal cortex. The science of temptation runs parallel to the science of why people make “bad” decisions. Sapolsky talks about how active the frontal cortex can be in some people when they have the opportunity to do a bad thing . . . and how calm it can be in other people when presented with a similar situation.
