Thinking and communicating about farm animal welfare: "de-polarizing" stakeholder views and why this matters, by Dr. Beth Ventura
James Danckert is a professor of cognitive neuroscience at the University of Waterloo where he studies boredom, mental model updating and the consequences of stroke for visual attention and decision making. Boredom is a ubiquitous human experience that we often dismiss as trivial. But it is far from it, with boredom proneness associated with higher rates of depression and anxiety, and increased drug and alcohol abuse, among many other ills. I will argue that, in part, boredom represents a threat to our sense of agency, the belief that we are the authors of our own lives.
