Thursday, April 4, at 7:30 p.m.
In the opening lines of A Primate’s Memoir: A Neuroscientist’s Unconventional Life Among the Baboons, Robert Sapolsky makes a confession. “I had never planned to become a savanna baboon when I grew up; instead, I had always assumed I could become a mountain gorilla.” Sapolsky is at the top of his field, however, as a researcher into primate behavior and the impact of stress among the troupe’s individual members and the band at large. This has provided great insight into how all primate societies behave, including human kind. The good doctor and author is the invited guest of the University of Tulsa Presidential Lecture Series. He will speak at TU’s Allen Chapman Activity Center (on Fifth Place west of Gary Place) about his life’s work and what it means to us. Admission is free. For more, visit www.utulsa.edu.
