    Care: A Natural History of Intimacy

    Close social relationships are common in the animal world, and are essential aspects of the human experience. They promote collaboration and engender conflict. When do we consider a relationship a bond? This talk draws from animal behavior, neuroscience, and evolutionary biology, to explore how and why bonds form in species as diverse as prairie voles, poison frogs, and humans.


    We are in-person!
