Psychology grad student Yuan Chang Leong joins Natalie, Nora, and Nicole to talk about using the show Sherlock to explore how different people store memories – and we’re more similar than you might think! Plus, a three-round game show helps us crown a scientist of the week.
“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.
