Are Geniuses Born or Made?

Is there a way to bring out the genius within all of us? In this interview withThe New York Times columnist Carl Zimmer as part of Big Think’s partnership with 92Y’s Seven Days of Genius  series, neuroscientist Joy Hirsch explores the connections in our brain that make us different and whether people like Einstein are born geniuses or develop from blank slates.

This is the latest installment in an exclusive, week-long video series of today’s brightest minds exploring the theory of genius. Exclusive videos will be posted daily on youtube.com/bigthink  throughout 92nd Street Y’s second annual 7 Days of Genius Festival: Venture into the Extraordinary, running March 1 to March 8, 2015.
