Health and happiness: design for life

By Prof Paul Dolan 11 Apr 2016 0

Recent research in behavioural science have taught us that most of what we do simply comes about, rather than being thought about. We are influenced more by the context of our decisions than the cognitions of our minds. The subtle aspects of our immediate environment greatly affect us in ways in which we are not usually unaware. With a focus on the healthcare environment, this talk discusses the mechanisms that drive our behaviour and the interventions that can increase and sustain happiness.
