    Amber Thatcher - Social Systems, the Brain, and Behavior

    Here I sit down with Amber Thatcher to talk about animal behavior, social systems and some of the brain's role in these topics. You can find Amber on twitter @amberlynn424 .

    In the podcast we reference Carl Safina's book "Becoming Wild" which you can find with a simple web search or quite possibly at your public library.

    We also reference a study by Slepian and Ambady (2014) which you can find here(https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0010027713002242) among other places.

    Best to you all and thanks for listening!
