BSP 129 Dr. Brenda Milner: Neuropsychology and the Study of Memory

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 01:16:19 +0000

In episode 129, Dr. Brenda Milner comes on the show to talk about her life's work and her most famous experiments. Dr. Milner was a pioneer in the field of neuropsychology and in the study of memory and other cognitive functions in humankind. She studied the effects of damage to the medial temporal lobe on memory and systematically described the deficits in the most famous patient in cognitive neuroscience, Henry Molaison, formerly known as patient H.M.She has made major contributions to the understanding of the role of the frontal lobes in memory processing, in the area of organizing information.

Thu, 01 Sep 2016 18:54:43 +0000

In episode 128, Jon Mallat is here to talk about the book he co-authored, "The Ancient Origins of Consciousness: How the Brain Created Experience".

BSP 124 After Phrenology with Michael Anderson

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 00:45:49 +0000

In BSP 124 philosopher turned neuroscientist Michael Anderson talks about his new book "After Phrenology: Neural Reuse and the Interactive Brain." One of the most surprising recent discoveries in neuroscience has been that every part of the brain actually participates in multiple coalitions and functions. This means asking WHERE a certain function is located or WHAT a particular region does are obsolete questions.

While the book is quite technical our conversation presents the key ideas in a way that will be accessible to listeners of all backgrounds. We also consider how neural reuse fits into the embodied cognition approach that we have discussed in previous episodes.

BSP 99 Temple Grandin

Fri, 26 Jul 2013 09:00:00 +0000

Episode 99 is an interview with Temple Grandin author of "The Autistic Brain: Thinking Across the Spectrum." Last month we focused on the neuroscience of autism, but this month's episode focuses on practical advice. Because some of the challenges of autism overlap with those faced by "normal" people, I think Dr. Grandin's advice will be valuable to a wide range of listeners.

Extra: Vaccines Save Lives!

Sat, 31 Jan 2009 20:00:00 +0000

I have included Episode 25 of Books and Ideas in the feed for the Brain Science Podcast because it is a discussion of the alleged connection between vaccines and autism. In this episode I interview Dr. Paul Offit, author of "Autism's False Prophets: Bad Science, Risky Medicine, and the Search for a Cure." Despite overwhelming scientific evidence against a relationship between vaccines and autism, vaccine opponents continue to frighten and confuse parents. Meanwhile we are beginning to see the re-emergence of preventable and potentially life-threatening diseases among the increasing numbers of unvaccinated children.

Dr. Offit's book provides a thorough discussion of the science and politics of the controversy. I hope this interview with motivate you to read "Autism's False Prophets" and to share it with others.
