New insights in brain science suggest that we are hard-wired for altruism and trust—even among strangers. Lab Team member Charles Montgomery invites neuroscientist Paul Zak and psychologist Emanuele Castano to help design a party that will bring out the love in even the most hardened New Yorker. Join us for a night of experiments in trust, play, and radical conviviality.
