Motivate the Brain: Why Dopamine Doesn't Work

FORA.tv (May 24, 2013) — Gamification has proven to be a powerful tool in driving change across nearly all environments -business, personal goals, even education. What is it about Gamification that makes it so successful in changing behavior? It isn't just about points or badges, or earning little gold stars. The best Gamification strategies are all about engagement, driven by MOTIVATION. Science tells us that motivation is the single most important factor when it comes to learning and changing behavior-far more important than breadth of skill, or even innate talent. Increase motivation, and you will increase learning-surpassing limits in ways you never imagined-no matter the subject, domain, or context. 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.

A Good Nose: Mary Roach Studies 'Olfactory Forensics'

FORA.tv (Apr. 23, 2013) — A Good Nose: Mary Roach Studies 'Olfactory Forensics' California Academy of Sciences - California Academy of Sciences Called "America's funniest science writer" by theWashington Post, author Mary Roach takes us down the hatch on an unforgettable tour of our insides. The alimentary canal is classic Roach terrain: the questions inspired by our insides are as taboo, in their own way, as the cadavers in Stiff, and every bit as surreal as the universe of zero gravity explored inPacking for Mars. Why is crunchy food so appealing? Why is it so hard to find names for flavors and smells? Why doesn't the stomach digest itself? How much can you eat before your stomach bursts? Can constipation kill you? Did it kill Elvis? We meet scientists who tackle the questions no one else thinks —or has the courage —to ask.
