Susan M. Schneider

Susan SchneiderThe Science of ConsequencesActions have consequences -- and the ability to learn from them revolutionized life on earth. While it's easy enough to see that consequences are important, few have heard there's a science of consequences, with principles that affect us every day and applications everywhere -- at home, at work, and at school. Despite their variety, consequences appear to follow a common set of scientific principles and share some similar effects in the brain. Further, scientists have demonstrated that learning from consequences predictably activates genes and restructures the neural configuration of the brain.

In The Science of Consequences, Susan M. Schneider, an internationally recognized biopsychologist, brings together research from many scientific fields to tell the story of how something so deceptively simple can help make sense of so much.
