My science heroes study animal behaviour.  The Dog Whisperer, Cesar Millan, is one of my favourite psychologists, because he understands that humans are animals.  The Arts allow people to tap into their nonverbal knowledge to create balanced, happy, fulfilling lives.  


My heroes are - I highlighted their books, which are easy, funny, and useful. 

Jaak Panksepp - Affective Neuroscience

Michael Grazziano - Neuroscience 

Robert Sapolsky - Neuroendocrinology

Temple Grandin - Animal Behaviourist/Autism
