In this talk from SAND 2018, Robert Sapolsky considers the unlikely realms where humans are merely on a continuum with other species…until you look closely. With a host of surprising and fascinating examples and illustrations he spells out the case that humans are a type of ape, operating on the same basic types of neurons found throughout the animal kingdom. So is there any behavior that we can say for certain is unique to humans?
