Biologist, neuroscientist and stress expert Robert Sapolsky, PhD, explored the science behind our best and worst behaviors as the seventh lecturer in the College’s Distinguished Lecture series last spring. Drawing on the latest research from a range of disciplines, Sapolsky provided a nuanced perspective on why we ultimately do the things we do. It turns out human behavior is complicated and often contradictory. Who knew?
To hear it from the biologist himself, check out Sapolsky’s TED Talk “The Biology of Our Best and Worst Selves,” at TED.com.
