Russell Poldrack will talk about the brain systems involved in risk-taking when he joins UT's Game Changers on Thursday, May 24, in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Poldrack will describe his research that has used brain imaging to understand the brain systems that are involved in risk taking, and why some individuals are more willing to take risks than others. This research has shown how the brain weighs rewards and punishments, and why the teenage years are a particularly vulnerable period for risky behavior.
