Episode Description

This week on The Method Section, Tom takes a look at the neurological circuit that is responsible for complex vocal learning. With such a restricted range of animals that show this incredible ability the Kuypers-Jurgens hypothesis presents a great opportunity to understand how complex vocal learning, and by effect, even human language evolved and why such specific neurological pathways are important.
