In the fifth video of our interview series, we talk to Dr. Carla Shatz, PhD, an American neurobiologist and member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the National Academy of Sciences, and the Institute of Medicine.

Dr. Shatz is one of the pioneers who determined some of the basic principles of early brain development.
