DISCOVER WHAT RODENTS KNOW ABOUT THE GOOD LIFE

What can the common laboratory rat tell us about being human? According to behavioral neuroscientist Kelly Lambert, a whole lot. Her twenty- five-year career conducting experiments that involve rats has led her to a surprising conclusion- Through their adaptive strategies and good habits, these unassuming little animals can teach us some essential lessons about how we, as humans, can lead successful lives. From emotional resilience and a strong work ethic to effective parenting and staying healthy, the lab rat is an unlikely but powerful role model for us all.

'Witty, wise, and down-to-earth, Kelly Lambert teaches us much about ourselves by letting her rats do the talking. By understanding the fundamentals of brain function in rats, we can see reflections of human nature, provoking new insights into ourselves.' - PATRICIA CHURCHLAND, Professor Emerita, Philosophy Department, UCSD, and author of Braintrust

KELLY LAMBERT, PhD, is the Macon and Joan Brock Professor and Chair of Psychology at Randolph-Macon College and the author of Lifting Depression.
