When We Become Parents

View descriptionShare

How do our brains change when we become parents? What does having ‘baby brain’ really mean? And how can fathers use the science of bonding to feel close to their babies? 

In this episode of How We’re Wired, join evolutionary anthropologist Dr Anna Machin as she unpicks the neuroscience of parenthood – from the evolution of how human parenting to why testosterone levels permanently drop in new fathers, and if there’s really a difference between Mum’s and Dad’s brain.   

With special thanks to Adi Yaniv, Amy, Alex, and baby Frank.
