Philipp Khaitovich will talk about human brain evolution at Zaryadye


Is it true that we use only 10 percent of our brain power? Is there a direct relationship between brain size and intelligence? What is the difference between human and animal brains? How much of our intelligence is molded at the molecular level and how can learning make us smarter? In his lecture at Zaryadye Park, molecular biologist and Skoltech professor Philipp Khaitovich will answer these and many other questions related to human brain evolution through natural selection, structural changes in the brain and their effects on our ability to speak and think.

The lecture will be given in Russian at Zaryadye Park Lecture Center on December 4, 2018 at 6 p.m.
