There are so many myths about neuroscience, from the obviously ridiculous to those that challenge our self-conceptions. Joel and Ryan take on their top ten. This is a repost of an earlier episode so it will make it on the iTunes library!
Ryan and Joel talk about how being depressed is rough. But, there are treatment options like never before! And NEUROPLASTICITY underlies it all. Repost so this will get on iTunes
Hello listeners! We’re pleased to bring you a brand new podcast today in which we interview Dr. Freddy Starr who works in the field of Brain-Machine Interfaces and neurofeedback. We really enjoyed doing this interview and have several more casts involving interviewees coming up.
A few notes: 1) This cast covered many borders, both state and national, so the recording quality may not be quite what you are used to. The discussion is fascinating though so we hope you’ll bear with us. 2) We mention “Cz” several times throughout the cast. This refers to a point on the scalp at which an electrode is placed. If you google EEG electrode placement you can find maps of common scalp coordinates. 3) We mention different brain wave rhythms at several points in this cast. There are a lot of pseudoscience-touting, BS websites out there that will mislead you. Therefore, we recommend you get info from a reliable source such as this one (though the website is under maintenance at the time of posting) – http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/what-is-the-function-of-t-1997-12-22/
The inaugural episode! Scientists can control roaches wirelessly! What animal might be next?
