Tali Sharot: Meaning and Expanding Human Knowledge

Sharot_GlassesExcellence Reporter: Tali, what is the meaning of life?

Tali Sharot: The meaning of life is to have meaning. That is to say, to know why you get up in the morning. That reason is different for different people.

For me personally it is expanding human knowledge in a way that can hopefully help people. And love – the connection we form with other humans.


~Tali Sharot, principal investigator and director of the Affective Brain Lab (funded by a fellowship from the Wellcome Trust) and a Reader (Associate Professor) of Cognitive Neuroscience in the department of Experimental Psychology at University College London.
