Brain Science with Ginger Campbell, MD: Neuroscience for Everyone

BS 159 is an interview with Dr. Kevin Mitchell, author of Innate: How the Wiring of Our Brains Shapes Who We Are. We discuss the fact that our brain-based behavior is actually more innate than is commonly realized. Even identical twins are innately different despite having nearly identical genomes. This is because of events that occur during brain development. Listen now to learn more about what science is revealing about this fascinating topic. (PS: we also talk about the role of brain plasticity.) Links and References: Innate: How the Wiring of Our Brains Shapes Who We Are by Kevin J....
