Damian Stanley, PhD, Psychology, Adelphi University. First described over 20 years ago, research on implicit social biases has grown exponentially, as has societal interest in both understanding and mitigating their influence over behavior. In this talk I will discuss the history of the field, behavioral and neuroscientific findings that shed light on the nature of implicit biases and their malleability, as well as my own perspective as a social neuroscientist. Finally, I will speculate on the utility of intervention at the individual and institutional level.
