The Neuroscience of Grief: How We Learn From Love and Loss

About the Talk

How can cognitive neuroscience help to clarify the “why” of grief – why it takes so long, and is so painful? Examine a new paradigm for understanding love, loss, and learning.
Dr. Mary-Frances O’Connor, associate professor of clinical psychology and psychiatry at the University of Arizona, uses an integrative view of clinical psychology and cognitive neuroscience to explore grieving as a learning process, and the brain's critical role in understanding that a loved one has died and updating one’s view of the world while carrying the absence of this person.
