This week, Nicole continues the conversation on curing cancer, but this time, with NANO-ROBOTS. Derrick tells us about nasty parasites that are pitted against each other. And Abhijit throws it back to some retro physics that is very much back in style.
Irena, Emily, and Abhijit discuss a new cancer treatment, why snow melts, and delve into some interesting animals.
Join Emily, Nora, and Nicole for updates on where creativity comes from and problems with p-values. And, at the end of the episode, new host Irena spices things up with the Scoville scale.
This week, Nora shares new insights about sight based on how flies smell, Abhijit connects fundamental physics to the Pyramids, and Emily uses science to justify your video game obsession.
Nora, Nicole, and Natalie talk about brains, including what makes human brains different, how human intelligence might work, and why DARPA is funding neuroscience research.
