Lecture Collection | Human Behavioral Biology

"(March 29, 2010) Stanford professor Robert Sapolsky gave the opening lecture of the course entitled Human Behavioral Biology and explains the basic premise of the course and how he aims to avoid categorical thinking.....
[also focuses on] lectures on the biology of behavioral evolution and thoroughly discusses examples such as The Prisoner's Dilemma....
[and]  behavioral patterns of human reproduction. He focuses on proximal and distal motivations, orgasm and fertility facilitation, non-reproductive sex, hormonal and cerebral sexual functions, and the differences and similarities between humans and animals in various physiological realms....
[he then] completes his talk on sexual behavior in humans as well as other species, focusing on characteristics that create attractiveness. He then switches subject and talks about human aggression and how this has evolved and developed in different cultures."

psyCast - Studies of obedience

Name of resource: psyCast - Studies of obedience
Submitted by: Aidan Sammons
Specification details: AQA-A
Other specifications: AQA-B, Edexcel
Guidance: MP3 podcast.  Duration 6mins 4sec.  A brief overview of studies of obedience covering:

Key studies Milgram & variations
Factors that affect obedience (legitimacy; responsibility)
Impact of Milgram's research

The idea is that students can download these to their iPods/MP3 players and
revise on the move.  I've no idea whether it works; that's why I'm giving it a go.
Any feedback appreciated.

Listen to the lecture

What is an Adam & Eve root?

One lover carries the "eve" root and the other carries the "Adam" root. I used it as a ring of sorts between my lover and I. Cheaper and less children have to die (slave mining)

"Aplectrum hyemale is a species of orchid in the (family Orchidaceae), the only species known in its genus. It is native to the eastern United States and Canada, from Oklahoma east to the Carolinas and north to Minnesota, Ontario, Quebec and Massachusetts. It is particularly common in the Appalachian Mountains, the Great Lakes Region, and the Ohio and Upper Mississippi Valleys. Isolated populations are also reported from Arizona.

Aplectrum hyemale is the sole species of the genus Aplectrum. The generic name comes from Greek and signifies "spurless". The species is commonly referred to as Adam and Eve or putty root, the latter refers to the mucilaginous fluid which can be removed from the tubers when they are crushed.

Aplectrum hyemale spreads underground through the growth of its tubers, forming large colonies. The leaves appear in late November and persist until March. They are uniquely pin-striped, with parallel alternating silvery-white and green stripes. In late May or early June the flower stalk emerges carrying several flowers, each only a few millimeters across"
