Kevin Mitchell, author "Innate" (BS 159)

Every parent knows that each child is born with an unique personality. In his new book Innate: How the Wiring of Our Brains Shapes Who We Are. Dr. Kevin Mitchell writes “We are different from each other in large part because of the way our brains get wired before we are born.” (page 7) A key idea is that much of much of our behavior is innate but this is only partly due to genetics. Events during brain development are equally important.

Listen to BS 159 now to learn more about what science is revealing about this fascinating topic. (PS: we also talk about the role of brain plasticity.)
