Here is a small gem of a talk about why our brains are wired to connect with each other. The psychologist Matthew Lieberman posits that we are profoundly social creatures, much more than we know or acknowledge. Lieberman explores groundbreaking research in social neuroscience that reveals that our need to connect with other people is even more fundamental than our need for food or shelter and that the social pain and pleasure we experience has just as much impact as physical pain and pleasure. The implications of this research can make us smarter, more effective, more productive and most importantly, happier.
