The Chimp Paradox – Dr Thomas Dannhauser

Meeting with Dr Dannhauser definitely provided students with much interesting information about brain, attention and concentration. I found The Chimp Paradox particularly interesting. This is that we have a primitive system in the brain that we do not control; it is impulsive and drives survival instincts. An explanation that computer games are highly addictive because they stimulate instincts was especially noteworthy as it was the real-life application of scientific knowledge and theories. I think this William’s Project guest was particularly inspiring as he is a clinical psychiatrist, English is not his first language and he showed us how much effort he put to achieve his goals.
