World Science Festival- The Social Synapse: Neuroscience And The Roots Of Human Connections

June 2, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$20 - $100

 

MODERATOR
John Donvan
PARTICIPANTS
Louise Barrett, Agustín Fuentes, Kevin Laland, Kevin Ochsner, Dietrich Stout

We humans work together on enormous scales, build complex tools as large as cities, and create social networks that span the globe. What is the key to this innately social profile? How did it evolve? This program will examine the development of the human brain — and the brains of other animals — asking how neurons and synapses orchestrate communal behavior and guide group interactions, demonstrating how our social nature is key to our humanity.

The Big Ideas Series is supported in part by the John Templeton Foundation.
