All in the Mind - Robert Sapolsky on the uniqueness of humans

This isn't an All in the Mind interview, but rather, a post from their blog. Still, very cool.

Robert Sapolsky on the uniqueness of humans

Neuroendocrinologist Bruce McEwen mentioned the research of neurobiologist and primatologist Robert Sapolsky in the interview I recorded with him about the biology of stress (extended audio offering here).

Professor Sapolsky got his PhD in Bruce's lab, and is author of popular books like Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers:A Guide to Stress, Stress-Related Diseases and Coping, and The Trouble with Testosterone: And Other Essays on the Biology of the Human Predicament, amongst others.

Here's a Stanford presentation by Sapolsky (a man of impressive curls) on 'the uniqueness of humans'.
