Thursday, 2 February 2023 - 8:30am

Claire returns to Lost in Science this week, to tell us what she’s learnt about her new baby, and how the needs of altricial human infants compare to other precocial animals that are ready to get up and go straight after birth; and Chris examines a new study into how the proportion of disruptive or paradigm-shifting research has declined across fields, and what may be the reasons for that.
