Article of the Week

What Brain Science Can Tell Us About Environmental Decision-Making
Dr. Nik Sawe, head of the Stanford Environmental Decision-Making and Neuroscience Lab, uses fMRI studies to gain insight into how individuals value the environment. He and colleague Brian Knutson found, for example, that thinking about how pollution would damage a valued environmental feature activates a part of the brain associated with disgust. In turn, this feeling of disgust predicted how much participants would donate to save that environmental feature.  Research like this aids pro-environment groups that can leverage the findings to run more lucrative fundraising campaigns.
