Robert Sapolsky: The Psychology of Stress

Robert M. Sapolsky, Ph.D., is the John A. and Cynthia Fry Gunn Professor of Biological Sciences and a professor of neurology and neurological sciences at Stanford University. In this clip from his talk for the Science of a Meaningful Life series, Sapolsky explains why the stress response, which evolved for short-term physical crises, can become a long-term, chronic problem for human beings.

  • Sapolsky is a living national treasure. Many of his bits posted on you-tube should be checked out by every adult, and shown in junior and high school health class so our youngsters step into the world with some truly applicable knowledge. I'm sure his work has saved many lives and will continue to do so.
