Author: Susan M Schneider; René C Reyes
Publisher: Amherst, N.Y. : Prometheus Books, 2012.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Actions have consequences, and the ability to learn from them revolutionized life on earth. It comes in quite handy for everyday life too. Consequences appear to follow a common set of scientific principles and share some similar effects in the brain. Schneider draws together research lines from many scientific fields to tell the story of how something so deceptively simple can help make sense of so much.

Abstract:

Actions have consequences, and the ability to learn from them revolutionized life on earth. It comes in quite handy for everyday life too. Consequences appear to follow a common set of scientific principles and share some similar effects in the brain. Schneider draws together research lines from many scientific fields to tell the story of how something so deceptively simple can help make sense of so much.
