Dr. Bryan Kolb from the University of Lethbridge gives an in-depth lecture on the neurology behind brain development. He says different experiences build different brain structures, which in turn function differently. Contrary to what was long thought, our genes are not set in stone. Environments and experience change the expression of our genes, and those changed genes can be passed along to the next generation.
