Understanding Human Behaviour: Short course at QUT Executive Education

Are you interested in why humans think and act the way we do? Hinze teaches a short course at QUTeX, which provides an overview of all the exciting things that neuroscience can teach us about how our brains determine our behaviour. You will discover how our unconscious processes influence our choices, how we learn and remember, and what motivates and drives us. You will learn why habits are hard to break, how subtle differences in perception shape our interpretation of the world, and how to use these insights to improve communication, productivity, and workplace relationships. link.

Article in the Conversation about our recent EEG-decoding paper in PNAS
