Description

Launch of the new book by Kevin Mitchell: INNATE - How the Wiring of Our Brains Shapes Who We Are, published by Princeton University Press.

What makes you the way you are – and what makes each of us different from everyone else? In INNATE, leading neuroscientist and popular science blogger Kevin Mitchell traces human diversity and individual difference to their roots in the wiring of our brains.

Surveying the latest research on the genetic and neural underpinnings of sexuality and intelligence, as well as disorders such as autism, schizophrenia, and epilepsy, INNATE examines the social and ethical implications of these findings and the new technologies they have spawned to predict or manipulate human traits. Mitchell’s key insight, that developmental and genetic variations create innate differences in how our brains are wired—differences that impact all aspects of our psychology, will transform the way we understand the interplay between nature and nurture.
