Uncovering Consciousness

Uncovering Consciousness

2019-03-2000:33:21

This month, Naked Neuroscience is delving into the curious concept of consciousness - asking what exactly is it? Why should scientists study it? And what has the unconscious mind got to do with generating ideas? We speak to Cambridge University's Tristan Bekinschtein and scientist, screenwriter and author Leonard Mlodinow. Plus, we take a slice of the latest neuroscience news and digest it, with the help of local experts Duncan Astle from Cambridge University and Helen Keyes from Anglia Ruskin University...

This month, Naked Neuroscience is back at the Rosenthal Symposuim conference on changing behaviour for the healthier, organised by the UK Academy of Medical Sciences and the US National Academy of Medicine. How can healthy behaviour changes be implemented in individuals and across a whole population? Plus, we're plucking out a couple of papers from the latest neuroscience research, with the help of some local experts. Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists
This month we're lifting the lid on health-related behaviour at the UK Academy of Medical Sciences and USA National Academy of Medicine's Rosenthal Symposium. We're asking what neuroscience can tell us about why we tend to overdo it on the cake, despite knowing we shouldn't, and looking at how understanding behaviour can help us change it for the healthier. Plus, we'll discover what's hot off the neuroscience newsreel with the help of some local experts. Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists
