  Keith talks with Edward Kravitz, the George Packer Berry Professor of Neurobiology at the Harvard Medical School.  Kravitz studies the behavioral genetics of aggression and talks about the nasty behaviors of lobsters and fruit flies.  The genetic code of fruit flies allows researchers to easily create mutant passive or aggressive fruit files and study their patterns.  http://dms.hms.harvard.edu/neuroscience/fac/kravitz.php
