    Description

    A leading neuroscientist explains why your personal traits are more innate than you think.  

    What makes you the way you are - and what makes each of us different from everyone else? In Innate, leading neuroscientist and popular science blogger Kevin Mitchell traces human diversity and individual differences to their deepest level: in the wiring of our brains. 

    Deftly guiding us through important new research, including his own groundbreaking work, he explains how variations in the way our brains develop before birth strongly influence our psychology and behavior throughout our lives, shaping our personality, intelligence, sexuality, and even the way we perceive the world.  

    We all share a genetic program for making a human brain, and the program for making a brain like yours is specifically encoded in your DNA. But, as Mitchell explains, the way that program plays out is affected by random processes of development that manifest uniquely in each person, even identical twins. 

    The key insight of Innate is that the combination of these developmental and genetic variations creates innate differences in how our brains are wired - differences that impact all aspects of our psychology - and this insight promises to transform the way we see the interplay of nature and nurture.

    Excellent overview.

    This is an excellent overview of a subject that perturbs the thinking of many, perhaps most people. The state of knowledge in this field has come in a rush in recent decades, and I am grateful for this rigorous general update.

    Very informative

    Very informative, love his personal opinion part at the end of the book. This Book starts dry but it get interesting after fist chapter.
    I am neither a scientist nor science a student. I guess I have some background college in biology on during my youth . Now I am 47 and suddenly interested in brains and it’s function.. The audible and long commute in los angles helped lessened to lots of great books about the subject.This book was certainly one of those great books.

    Fascinating!

    Very complex systems are described in a simple yet elegant way. I learned a lot!
