In the introduction to this four-video series featuring neuroscientist Emile Bruneau, he lays out the foundation of his work into how the brain drives groups of people to conflict. Bruneau was a researcher at the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania and director of its Peace and Conflict Neuroscience Lab. The other videos in the series cover the topics of empathy, dehumanization, and metaperceptions.
Sadly, Bruneau passed away from brain cancer in September, 2020. These videos are part of his efforts to ensure that the important work of bringing peace to the world through science would live on.
