Posted By on Wed, Dec 21, 2016 at 3:57 PM


Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

Dietary researcher Dr. Jeff Volek lays out the science behind why you should declare your independence from dietary carbohydrates—sugar, flour, starchy vegetables like potatoes, apple juice—that cause the insulin secretion that puts on fat.

Nature vs. Nurture

Posted By on Wed, Dec 14, 2016 at 5:03 PM


Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

Twins research unlocks the answers to numerous questions we all have about human nature:

•How much do our genes determine who we are?

•Can we shift our environment to make the best of the genes we have?

•Where do our personalities come from?

•Why are some sisters so different from one another?

•How much does having rotten parents affect your chances for success?

•Why do some abused children grow up to be criminals and why do some become productive individuals?

Tonight, a very special guest, twins researcher Dr. Nancy Segal, who uses her studies of twins to figure out the rest of us—such as how much we, on average, are shaped by our environment and how much by our genes.

She’s the author of four books on twins, which can be found on her website, drnancysegaltwins.org. Join us tonight as she tells fascinating stories about twins and what her research on twins has to tell us about how we come to be the people we are.

Posted By on Wed, Dec 7, 2016 at 3:38 PM


Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

This is a show on how the negative can be positive—on how we actually need the emotions that make us uncomfortable. They make us whole, balancing the "positive" emotions. Dr. Todd Kashdan will lay out the science on how anger, anxiety, and other "negative" feelings can actually be motivating, illuminating, and helpful—giving us our best shot at success and fulfillment.

Dr. Kashdan's myth-busting book he'll be discussing, co-authored with Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener, is “The Upside of Your Dark Side: Why Being Your Whole Self—Not Just Your ‘Good’ Self—Drives Success and Fullfillment.”
