Hard Wired - 28 April

From TED Radio Hour, 7:06 pm on 28 April 2019


How much of who we are is biology? How much is learned? And how much can we change? This hour, TED speakers on how genes and experience collaborate -- and compete -- to make us who we are.

Robert Sapolsky: How Much Agency Do We Have Over Our Behavior?
Moshe Szyf: How Do Our Experiences Rewire Our Brains And Bodies?
Nadine Burke Harris: How Does Trauma Affect A Child's DNA?
Brian Little: Are Human Personalities Hardwired?
