Motivate the Brain: Why Dopamine Doesn't Work

Motivate the Brain: Why Dopamine Doesn't Work (May 24, 2013) — Gamification has proven to be a powerful tool in driving change across nearly all environments -business, personal goals, even education.

Join cognition expert Andrea Kuszewski for a lively, non-technical discussion of the science of motivation, dissecting that 'magical' process going on in the brain that is such a critical factor in engagement and learning.
