  • this was awesome! very informative

  • As a mature soul working in a professional enviornment with a broad spectrum of ages I can say I had many aw-haw moments listening to this great presentation.

  • unless I'm not getting the joke, it's a very lame one, just sayin….

  • I was a teenage boy. I never approached out of fear. I was coerced through scary situations by older women whom then pretended that I had made the choice to proceed on my own. This lady is a man hating piece of $#!+.

  • I agree, glad u said it 🙂

  • What a great lecture.  Very interesting research.

  • She is unintentionally demonstrating the an aspect of the subject of the video – Emotions Afffecting Behavior (stress response).  Could we say she's experiencing anxiety, fear (public speaking).  That is clear by her breathing, hand flailing, rapid speech and high vocal pitch.initially, Observe that this normalizes over the time of her speaking. So lets give her a break, there's some good info later in the video, Not everyone handles being in front of an audience equally well.

  • Looking at the history of psychiatry, it's hard to take that field seriously. Full of fraud and corruption.

  • it amazes me how believing changes the way our bodys responses.
