Guest: Margaret Livingstone, PhD, Professor of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School Eyes may be windows to the soul, but they are also windows to the brain. Scientists at Harvard Medical School have been studying the brains of baby macaque monkeys and they’ve found that eyesight is a key to brain development, even when the monkeys are asleep! Their findings have important implications for human brain development, too.
