    E193 - Re-Release: Refreshing Perspectives on Recovery: September is National Recovery Month with Dr. Nzinga Harrison (E82)

    During National Recovery Month, we are re-releasing this classic episode in which Dr. Sabrina Segal interviews addiction expert Dr. Nzinga  Harrison about the need to address stigma and misconceptions surrounding the topic of addiction. When it comes to addiction, there are many questions. What does it mean to say that someone is in recovery? What are some behavioral addictions that most people don’t think about? Are there such things as healthy addictions? In this episode, Dr. Harrison shares a refreshing and novel perspective on the topics of addiction and recovery.

She is Chief Medical Officer and Co-Founder of  Eleanor Health, an innovative company that provides comprehensive, longitudinal outpatient care for individuals experiencing opioid and other substance use disorders. She earned her bachelor’s degree in biology with Spanish and Chemistry minors at Howard University, completed medical school at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and General Psychiatry Residency at Emory University. She is Board-Certified in both Adult General Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine and has spent her career treating individuals with Serious Persistent Mental Illness and Addictive Diseases. Currently she holds adjunct faculty appointments at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry is Co-Founder of Physicians for Criminal Justice Reform, Inc. and Campaign Psychiatrist for Let’s Get Mentally Fit, a public education and stigma-reduction campaign.

    E191 - Re-Release: Sounds of Science: The Clinical Application of Auditory Neuroscience with Dr. Nina Kraus (E141)

    E191 - Re-Release: Sounds of Science: The Clinical Application of Auditory Neuroscience with Dr. Nina Kraus (E141)

    What led you to pursue a career in auditory neuroscience and what is the mission behind your laboratory, Brainvolts? What is the effect of bilingualism on Alzheimer’s disease? How can sound be used for the assessment of traumatic brain injury and other neurological conditions? In this episode, Dr. Nina Kraus addresses these questions and much more about the clinical applications for auditory neuroscience research. Her laboratory at Northwestern University, Brainvolts, has discovered how to measure the biology of auditory processing with unprecedented precision. The implications of the research conducted there extends beyond the laboratory to schools, community centers, and clinics.
    Nina Kraus, Ph.D. is a professor at Northwestern University who studies the biology of auditory learning. Through a series of innovative studies involving thousands of research participants from birth to age 90, her research has found that our lives in sound, for better (musicians, bilinguals) or worse (language disorders, concussion, aging, hearing loss), shape auditory processing. She continues to conduct parallel experiments in animal models to elucidate the mechanisms underlying these phenomena.
    Never having accepted a lack of technology as a roadblock to scientific discovery, Kraus has invented new ways to measure the biology of sound processing in humans that provide precision and granularity in indexing brain function. With her technological innovations she is now pushing science beyond the traditional laboratory by conducting studies in schools, community centers, and clinics.
    Using the principles of neuroscience to improve human communication, she advocates for best practices in education, health, and social policy. Dr. Kraus is the author of the book “Of Sound Mind: How our Brain Constructs a Meaningful Sonic World.”

Love all things NEI

Great podcast from a great organization

Good, but too much up-talking

Good info, but some guests “up-talk” a lot, voice inflection going high at the end of every sentence- as if it is a question, instead of a statement.

LiveToFightAnotherDay ,

Great topics!

Perfect podcast for my commute. They have had some amazing guests and it is nice to hear expert opinions on current events. I find the content extremely relevant and helps keep me updated! The host is knowledgeable and has great interview skills. She is a joy to listen to. I recommend this podcast to all my co-workers. Happy they have started releasing episodes weekly!
