Social and Moral Consequences

Our last video interview with James W. Prescott, PhD., explores the inevitable consequences of the brain behavior research Jim and his colleagues perused nearly fifty years ago. What we call normal bonding is not sweet sentiment or some romantic notion. It is fundamental biology. Deprive the newly emerging brain of specific sensory experiences found in historically normal mothering and that brain will develop abnormally. As these abnormalities become the norm the external culture will express these pathologies in every aspect of our personal and social lives. In his first book, Joseph Chilton Pearce called this the Time Bomb in the Nursery.
