We all have moments of wondering, “Why did I make that decision? Why did my brain want to do that?”
Teagan Wall has devoted her career to studying questions like these, and she joins Ben today to talk about the neural influences that drive us to buy things we don’t need, to get addicted to the things we enjoy, and to make decisions that put us at risk.
She’s even got some science-based tips for anyone struggling with addiction, or with any tough choice.
