This week on Goggles Optional, Apocalypse! Hosts Diego, Dave, Chelsea, and Nora discuss the terrifying Ebola outbreak, and in this context, why you might want to watch out for Batman. Next, where have all the bees gone, and can we dress Diego in a bee suit to address this issue? Finally, we share tidbits on giant penguins, more of the California drought, and how Google is getting up close and personal with health data in the name of science!
“Gee Goggles Optional, what are we going to do this week?” The same thing we do every week listeners, try to bring science to the world! Emily, Diego, Lisl, and David host a BRAIN themed episode! The group discuss two major brain mapping studies in mice (Pinky) and human (Brain). Want to see how brainy you are? Our game show features a round of “Guess the Real Brain Term.” Finally, lightsabers aside, we explore a cool way to move paralyzed muscle by firing light into the brain.
