Biology professor and Human Errors author Nathan Lents moderates a panel of experts to discuss what makes us human.
Is it our genes? The structure of our brains? What we’ve learned from our family and friends? New Yorker science and psychology columnist Maria Konnikova weighs in on the psychological components of our human identity; Princeton neuroscience and computer science researcher Sebastian Seung looks to the ever changing connections between our brain’s neurons — where nature meets nurture; and Carl Zimmer helps us understand what we have received from the generations past and what we can pass along to the future.
