New research tells us that our relationships are critical to our survival. Chatting with friends over a meal or taking a morning walk with a neighbor serve important biological functions. Our era of constant digital connection is also one of increasing social isolation - Facebook depression. Research shows that without sustained social interaction, the human brain may become as impaired as one that has incurred a traumatic head injury. Tune in this Sunday evening at 10:30pm when Al speaks with developmental psychologist and author Susan Pinker. Her new book, The Village Effect affirms the importance of a real social network and provides principles for creating your own village.
