Plus Pilots: The Developing Brain

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too much "history" of the brain Not too interesting, just listening to her talk. I presume the later lectures will include real time pictures and talk about the development of the brain. I guess this is okay for beginners who have not studied biology, but I wasn't looking for a lecture on evolution, really. I give it a 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The structure of the course is on target for me as a novice to the brain. She easily made me comfortable in learning the history of the development of the brain. Hopefully in future lectures, she can keep it easy to learn as well as enjoyable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Review of evolutional brain development This lecture was very interesting and clearly and pleasantly presented. More could be added regarding the research and effects of its influence on our behaviour over lifetimes. Describing and explaining the current research on the subject would also be helpful. Hoping to hear more from this lecturer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from More please This has been a neat introduction. Presented well, logically and relevantly. It was very accessible to one like me who has an interest but not a lot of knowledge in the area. More please.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great introduction Loved the presentation style and introduction to this topic. Enjoyed the general context in which the ideas were developed. Would have liked more examples to many of the ideas. Looking forward to the next lectures.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Who knew the brain is layered? Very interesting topic. Presenter is very easy to listen to. The development of the brain, the parts we share with other animals and the need for the newest layer to offset or control elements of the older brain is new to me.

The Developing Brain
1: The Developing Brain

Measured nucleotide by nucleotide, the human genome is nearly 99% identical to that of the chimpanzee. So why don’t we live in trees? Professor Gabrielle Principe takes us back 2 million years to learn how the choices we made back then have kept our species alive, and how the modern world and its technologies continue to affect how our brains develop.
