Food for Thought: Professor Keith Payne, Department of Psychology & Neuroscience
March 27, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Keith Payne, Phd is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience. His lab studies how inequality shapes the human mind and asks questions like: Why do people make more self-defeating decisions when inequality is high? Why does feeling poor sometimes have more powerful effects than actually being poor? Why do people sometimes act in prejudiced ways even when they intend to be fair? Professor Payne’s lab uses the methods of experimental psychology to understand the cognitive and emotional mechanisms behind these pressing social questions.
