Dr. Sapolsky, who has been referred to as the “world’s funniest neuroscientist” by Salon.com, is well-known for his gift for storytelling. He will be speaking about “Stress and Disease,” and the strong link between them, based on his extensive research, including a stint living with baboons, which he found to be an ideal environment for learning about stress and stress-related diseases in humans.
Dr. Sapolsky is a MacArthur “Genius” Fellow, a professor of biology and neurology at Stanford University, and a research associate with the Institute of Primate Research at the National Museum of Kenya. In 2008, National Geographic & PBS aired an hour-long special on stress featuring Dr. Sapolsky and his research on the subject. The humor and humanity he brings to sometimes-sobering subject matter make Dr. Sapolsky a fascinating speaker. He lectures widely on topics as diverse as stress and stress-related diseases, baboons, the biology of our individuality, the biology of religious belief, the biology of memory, schizophrenia, depression, aggression, and Alzheimer’s disease.
