A podcast about the brain, hosted by Stanford students. We invite brainy people for science show and tell. Come geek out with us.
In Converging, student host Anthony Agbay talks with Dr. Levi Gadye, whose expertise is in the stem cells that live in your nose. They discuss how the retina produces color vision, the ethics of animal research, genes, tumors, and more!
In Tripping, student host Vinh Ton talks with Dr. Eric Chan, a psychiatrist, about how mental health care is delivered to people who are homeless or in prison. For show and tell, Eric brings recent evidence that hallucinogens could target serotonin just as well as antidepressants, giving patients with cancer some much-needed peace of mind.
Could your gut bacteria be making decisions for you--even when choosing a mate? It certainly seems that way for flies. In Gut Feeling, student host Sophie Hearn talks with Dr. Sharon Greenblum about fly sex, a multiple choice mating test, poop (you've been warned), and why we think the gut-brain connection is real.
