Description
Interdisciplinary approach to the investigation of how the human brain is sculpted by evolution, constrained or freed by genes, shaped by early experience, modulated by hormones, and otherwise influenced to produce a wide range of behaviors, some of them abnormal. Explains how little can be explained by thinking about any one of these factors alone because some combination of influences is almost always at work.
