BS 134 Remember Jaak Panksepp, pioneer of Affective Neuroscience

Brain Science with Ginger Campbell, MD: Neuroscience for Everyone

Brain Science was launched in 2006 by Dr. Ginger Campbell, an experienced emergency physician with a passion for exploring how recent discoveries in neuroscience are revealing how our brains make us who we are. This podcast is for non-scientists, scientists, and everyone in between. We interview scientists and discuss the latest books about the brain. Monthy episodes resume in June 2017, but all episodes posted since January 2013 are available for FREE in iTunes. Please visit our website for more episodes and transcripts.

Dr. Jaak Panksepp, pioneer of Affective Neuroscience died in April 2017 at the age of 73. Because he was one of our most popular guests we are replaying his first interview from 2010. Please visit Brain Science website for detailed show notes and links to transcripts. Here are links to the show notes for his other free interviews. BS 91 Books and Ideas 51 In the next episode we will explore newer theories of emotion, but I think Dr. Panksepp's legacy is worth honoring.   Send feedback to brainsciencepodcast@gmail.com Follow Dr. Campbell on Twitter @docartemis.

BS 133 Counting Neurons with Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel
(NaN)
How many neurons does the typical human brain contain? The oft-quoted number of 100 billion turns out to have been a guess that was wrong! By a lot! Dr. Suzana Herculano-Houzel is the Brazilian neuroscientist who developed a revolutionary new technique for accurately counting the neurons in brains of all sizes. She shocked the scientific community when she determined that the average human brain contains only 86 billion neurons, but we still have more neurons in our cerebral cortex than any other species.

BS 132 William Uttal on the limitations of brain imaging
(NaN)
Dr. William Uttal first appeared on the Brain Science Podcast back in 2012. He was a long time critic of over reliance of certain types of brain imaging, especially fMRI, in cognitive neuroscience. Sadly, he died in February 2017, so in his honor I am replaying that original interview. The points he made are just as relevant now as they were 5 years ago. Links and References Uttal, W. R.
