TEDxKrakow - Jerzy Vetulani - Aggression and empathy - a destructive mix

Jerzy Vetulani is a Member of the Polish Academy of Sciences, professor at the J. Dietla MWSZ in Krak?w and, after hours, at the Institute of Pharmacology at the Polish Academy of Sciences. He is a neuropsychopharmacologist with a specific interest in antidepressant and pro-cognitive medication as well as anti-addiction and is also a popular blogger. He will talk about the common neurobiological roots of empathy and aggression, and how the close relationship between these two supposedly different emotions can lead us to destructive behaviour and misguided decisions. Jerzy Vetulani spoke at TEDxKrak?w, an independently organised TED event which took place on 20 October 2011 at the Manggha Centre for Japanese Art and Technology in Krak?w, Poland. Our theme was "The New Normal" and we asked our speakers to tell us about what we might just have to get used to once the dust settles from the various ongoing geopolitical, financial and environmental crises. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations). Polish: Original subtiles: Jerzy Pa?
