Without emotions decisions can’t be made

Dr. Antonio Demasio is a professor of Neuroscience at University of Southern California. He has confirmed emotions are needed to make decisions. We don’t make decisions just on facts.

Emotions provide the motivation to make a choice. Recalling a prior experience and the associated emotion, people want to experience the emotion again. Hopefully by making a new decision.

Watch Dr. Demasio briefly share his findings in his own words.
