The biology of our best and worst selves | Robert Sapolsky

How can humans be so compassionate and altruistic -- and also so brutal and violent? To understand why we do what we do, neuroscientist Robert Sapolsky looks at extreme context, examining actions on timescales from seconds to millions of years before they occurred. In this fascinating talk, he shares his cutting edge research into the biology that drives our worst and best behaviors.

Freud had his ego, Pavlov his dogs, and Maslow his pyramid. Now students in Introduction to Psychology have Course Hero!

Course Hero's Introduction to Psychology series explores the most relevant theories and concepts across the field, including:
• The science of psychology
• The biological foundations of behavior

For centuries, humans have been trying to figure out what makes us, well, us! Psychologists have studied the human brain, human emotions, and the human condition to better understand our interactions with ourselves and others.

The series also dives into:
• The components of thinking, learning, and remembering
• A look at social and developmental psychology to see how humans change as they age
• A discussion of how stress, common psychological disorders, and treatments affect people today

Using essential psychology vocabulary, summary points, and professor-reviewed explanations, Course Hero makes learning psychology quick and easy!
