This week on The Method Section, Tom takes a look at complex vocal learning. What is it? Where does it occur? Why is it important to study? See how researchers look for vocal learning and the surprising places that they find it. Why is it so important in humans yet not in our closest evolutionary relatives? Yet humans and some birds share similar brain structures! Music by: Joakim Karud – https://soundcloud.com/joakimkarud.
