Who knew that FAP FAP FAP meant Fixed Action Pattern? Prof. Robert Sapolsky of Stanford University did. This is his three hour lecture on the Neurobiology of Primate Sexuality from 2002. Part 2

Technically, FAP FAP FAP is short for Fixed Action Pattern, Fixing Action Patterns that Fix Action Patterns.

Yay, Robert Sapolsky! His book, A Primate's Memoir, is one of my favorites.

Thanks for posting this.
