THE SCIENCE SHOW with Robyn Williams - Wired for Sound

Saturday March 22, Midday, and Monday March 24, 7pm

Birds have complex songs precisely organised - but how?  Now Erich Jarvis
thinks he has the answer:  a set of nervous pathways chemically tracked to
reveal a brain architecture that may even be the origin of our own brains'
basis for language.  We also hear from a scientist at Harvard who's recorded
vocalisations of everything from randy alligators to 'talking' seals.
