Introducing our newest contributor, Kayt Sukel! In a video interview with Big Think, she discusses the new frontiers of neuroscience. For the first time in modern history, researchers are studying both the male and female of a species, a groundbreaking approach that gives us insight into biological sex distinctions in the brain. (Just as there are differences downstairs, there are differences upstairs, says Sukel). In her first post for her blog, World in Mind, she questions whether what we've come to know as goofy adolescent behavior might be hardwired. Perhaps it is a simple disconnect between two key brain circuits, she admits, though she takes issue with the idea of interpreting adolescence as some sort of deficiency in kids, framing it instead as a fundamental part of the learning process. Finally, Big Think contributor Brian Hoffstein interviews Barry Schwartz, a psychologist who's taking a critical look at neuroscience as a field--and who argues that we all should be more critical of the results of scientific studies.
