Misadventures in multitasking
How many times in a day are you doing just one thing?
Or is it more common that you’re multitasking – maybe texting and walking? Reading while listening to music?
We all multitask to some degree, but do any of us do it well? And is that even possible?
This week on All in the Mind, we look into the science of multitasking – why we struggle to do it, why some of us are better at it than others – and how to do it effectively if you must.

Neuromarketing — how brands target your brain
Would you be able to tell the difference between a bargain bin red and a top drop? Or how about what separates a duck paté … from one made of dog food?
Perception is everything when it comes to marketing, and decades of neuroscience and psychology research have given businesses ever greater insights into how we can make decisions and how they can subtly shape our expectations so that yes – even dog food paté can become appealing.
But the ramifications of this power may be pushing companies into unethical territory.

The 'hidden histories' of autistic adults
Over the past two decades, our cultural understanding of autism and what it means to be autistic has grown - though we have a long way to go. But there are entire generations of people who grew up when the popular conception of autism was a far cry from how it’s now understood.
It meant a whole host of people who grew up feeling like they didn’t fit in, but never quite knowing why.
They were autistic, but undiagnosed. And when a diagnosis did come as an adult – it was often revelatory and life-changing.
On All in the Mind this week, 'hidden histories’ of late-diagnosed autistic adults.
First broadcast 8 August 2021.

Reseñas de clientes
As a psychologist myself, I'm always looking for ways to learn more about the way we work, and All in the Mind has turned out to be a great option for those days when I'm walking to work and I need something to listen to.
Fascinating and in-depth conversations about many different subject areas. I usually recommend it to my English students to practice their listenings, and I can definitely recommend it to specialists in psychology as well.
