I've watched the entire course, and I'll tell you that you are wrong.

He's not rebranding anything, but the entire lecture series is a literature study of the history of the study of human behavior from a biological and psychological standpoint as well as a micro-study into a number of different sub-fields to give, at the end, the best picture of the fields of neurobiology and endocrinology at a somewhat current level of understanding.

Because so much of human behavior from the biological standpoint is compared to animal behaviors, and trying to find the lowest common denominators - you'd be surprised how far down the the evolutionary chain certain behaviors go based on some pretty clever research i.e. see ethology.

He's a great lecturer and extremely thorough. If you start at the beginning it's quite an amazing course with a HUGE breadth of different aspects to look from.

I merely linked those two lectures because they completely address what you questioned as well as providing a number of landmark studies i.e. references which were done. But if you can't be bothered to listen, then I wouldn't expect giving you information on those studies (as you asked for) would be any better. He breaks down into a few hours what would take a very studious person perhaps years to read and digest by going through all the literature.
