The Crimes of Macbeth: Witchcraft of Neuropsychology?
October 30 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
The violent crimes of the late King Macbeth have been widely blamed on his cruelty and ambition. Yet rumors persist of the supernatural influence three mysterious figures – known only as the Weird Sisters – had on his decision-making. Did the Weird Sisters harness the power of magic to drive Macbeth’s bloodthirsty decisions or did they merely exploit tricks of neuroscience, psychology, and persuasion? In this true crime special, join Dr. Kaitlyn Casimo to uncover the facts of this chilling case. Topics will include the science of decision-making, pathways and brain structures that enable decisions, neuropsychology of risk assessment, and factors that influence decision-making such as illusions and disease.
