The three stigmas about mental health we need to deconstruct | Lisa Bortolotti | TEDxBrum

We all have things that we think we remember, that we believe with great conviction. For some people, these memories are false, and this makes communication really difficult. Lisa Bortolotti shares her insights into the strengths and limitations of the human mind. Lisa Bortolotti was born in Italy and studied philosophy in Bologna, London, Oxford, and Canberra before starting her academic career as Honorary Lecturer in Bioethics in the Centre for Social Ethics and Policy at the University of Manchester and Research Associate on the EC-funded EU-RECA (on the concept of research and the ethical regulation of research activities). Lisa is now Professor of Philosophy at the University of Birmingham specialising in philosophy of psychology and psychiatry. She is particularly interested in the strengths and limitations of the human mind, and has written extensively about delusions, inconsistent beliefs, memory distortions, confabulation, and failures of self-knowledge. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
