Psychology Today covered a study co-authored by Itzhak Fried, MD, PhD, explaining how the human brain’s complexities make us more intelligent than monkeys yet also more vulnerable to psychiatric diseases. Dr. Fried is a professor of neurosurgery and psychiatry at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA and the Jane and Terry Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA.
