We may expect to be able to draw parallels between how humans behave in groups and the pack instincts of animals. It also probably seems like common sense that we can better understand the impact of loneliness on people by observing animals in isolation.

B. Natterson-Horowitz's fascinating work at Harvard University and UCLA uses insight from the natural world to find new ways of approaching human health and development.
Studying a diverse range of animals in natural settings, B has uncovered adaptations with relevance to heart failure, sudden cardiac death, seizures, dementia, movement disorders, infertility and psychiatric conditions including anxiety, compulsive and eating disorders.
B joins us in The Garden to uncover the many ways in which the behaviours of humans in groups and alone can be illuminated by observing our animal cousins.Read more
