The Brain

leave a comment »

Braaaiiiiinsss.  We have them, and they’re really complicated.  This week, Chuck and I take a peek into a few of its crevices.  First, we go on a field trip to SUNY Stony Brook, to visit Alfredo Fontanini’s lab and listen to some rat sounds.  Then Chuck tries to figure out what’s going on in the brain during an orgasm.  To wrap up, I cool things off with some sensory hallucinations.  In between you get to listen to Pinky and Brain teach you about brains, and meet our newest reporter, Colm Kelleher.

Listen here.
