When Jonah Lehrer was in town to talk about his latest book, "How We Decide", Calacademy snagged the opportunity to interview him for "Science in Action".

He took the Visualization Studio through a tour of the brain as we make decisions whether in the cereal aisle or piloting a plane. Then the artists went to work, creating the brain visuals.

Since 1853, the California Academy of Sciences has been dedicated to exploring, explaining, and protecting the natural world. It is the only place in the world to combine an aquarium, natural history museum, and planetarium all under one living roof.
