Review of A Primate’s Memoir, by Robert Sapolsky
This website is designed to review Robert Sapolsky’s memoir for a Biological Anthropology project at the University of Notre Dame. It aims to provide not only a general overview and critical assessment, but to function as a place to openly discuss Robert’s work as well as general conservation efforts for baboons today.
I am studying Neuroscience and minoring in Anthropology at Notre Dame, so naturally, Sapolsky’s book laden with Neuroscience research struck a chord with me and drew me in. I intend to attend medical school, with the hopes of becoming a reconstructive plastic surgeon. For fun, I love doing anything related to art, music, and the great outdoors.
