New Podcast: Detecting Awareness With Brain Imaging

As John mentioned a while back, I’m starting a new podcast, The Life Of The Mind/Brain, examining issues that arise at the intersection of the cognitive sciences and society.  The podcast is aimed at a general audience, but hopefully the issues discussed will be of interest to the Brains gang.  And though I can’t promise anything, I’m happy to relay any questions people have to the interviewees and will encourage them to participate in the discussions.

The first episode focuses on the fascinating work coming out of Adrian Owen’s lab, which has been using imaging methods to detect awareness in patients previously diagnosed as vegetative. You can listen below:

Feedback welcome!
