Think About It...is a user's guide to the brain. Host Roberta Walker...takes listeners on a journey through the wonders of the brain to find out how it guides us, how it foils us, how it makes us who we are. But there's a bookish twist! Each week, Think About It...hosts the Brainiac Book Club, building a must-read list on the brain, with a new book each week. (Excerpt from here.)
Check it out at http://www.cbc.ca/thinkaboutit/episodes/. Listen to past episodes, such as The Learning Brain, which discusses how a bad mood can clog your brain's learning pathways; or You Must Remember This exploring how memories can disrupt our lives, such as with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Researchers are investigating ways to eradicate these through a kind of chemical memory surgery.
