Greg Sits down with UC Davis Neuroscientist and Psychologist Leah Krubitzer to discuss her career training in speech pathology and audiology to evolutionary biology (2:59), the makeup of a scientist that is an evolutionary biologist (6:41), conducting research in Queensland, Australia during graduate school (8:16), how the brain's mapping relates to spatial function (12:29), the difficulties of conducting comparative brain studies on extinct animals or in humans (18:55), research one on brain region interactions in regards to social behaviors (25:22), Thoughts on the human brain vs other animals and how will brains further evolve (27:22), and finally comparing Davis, Nashville, and Australia in terms of science and culture (35:30).

CARTA: Tool Use and Technology: Leah Krubitzer - The Combinatorial Creature: Cortical Phenotypes Within and Across Lifetimes

This symposium addresses the interactive gene-culture co-evolution of the human brain with tool use and technology - ranging from simple stone tools millions of years ago to computers today. The combination of genetic and activity dependent mechanisms that create a given cortical phenotype allows the mammalian neocortex to rapidly and flexibly adjust to different body and environmental contexts, and in humans permits culture to impact brain construction. Leah Krubitzer, UC Davis. Series: "CARTA - Center for Academic Research and Training in Anthropogeny" [Science] [Show ID: 34192]
