About This Event
The activity aims to understand what is optimism and what are the neurological bases that favor thinking in order to imagine that situations will always have, or in most cases, a positive outcome. Thus, evaluations about the relevance of understanding the adaptive role of optimism and in which scenarios it would be bad come into play.
