Making the Implicit Explicit: What Neuroscience Reveals About Controlling Our Unconscious Biases with David Rose

The Building Bridges team is honored to sponsor this special class by neurophysiologist David Rose. In recent years, there has been a great deal of scientific and popular interest in what are called “implicit biases.” Such biases—like racism, sexism, ableism—are largely unconscious and unintentional and yet can profoundly affect perception, behavior, and emotion. David will explore what modern brain research can teach us about the origin of these implicit biases, and especially about how they can be prevented, reduced, or controlled.

Some questions he will address:

  • When and where do unconscious biases emerge in the brain?
  • To what extent are social biases inherited or learned?
  • What are the primary types of implicit social biases found in the brain?
  • Why are implicit biases easier to learn than to unlearn?
  • Why are most anti-bias trainings and educational programs unsuccessful?
  • What does brain research reveal about how to design educational interventions that are successful in reducing, controlling, or preventing the injustices that follow from implicit biases?
