This lecture is an opportunity to look at human behavior from a neuroscience perspective. It is especially interesting to understand how science explains motives and relationships in the family. At a lecture by neurophysiologist Vyacheslav Dubynin, Doctor of Biological Sciences, you will learn:
- how the brain triggers parenting behavior;
- what programs are inherent in us innately and under what conditions they are implemented;
- what role do dads, grandmothers and grandfathers play;
- whether every woman has a maternal instinct by nature.
We see that some people don't like children at all. Was it their choice or was it the hormones that decided? The reactions of a woman who has given birth are somewhat similar to those of other mammalian mothers. But in some ways, Homo sapiens are unique. It is just these differences that are interesting to understand. There will be no moral assessments at the lecture, we will just find out what answers science gives to questions about parental care.
