Fri, Jul 31, 2015 -- 2:00 AM Explorers of the Brain

Right now, inside your head, is a three-pound, non-stop multitasking marvel. How does it work? Why does it work that way? How can we find the answers? This special program takes listeners to the front lines of research in brain science. From the magneto encephalography lab at NYU, to the Center for Neuroscience at UC Davis, to the Digital Brain Bank and at several stops in between, the show meets a dozen leading scientists and engineers working to bring us closer to a fundamental understanding of how and why the brain does what it does. The pace of discovery in neuroscience today is astonishing. And momentum is building. There will always be things about the brain that are fundamentally unknowable, but those gaps are being made smaller because researchers from a broad array of disciplines are pooling their expertise, and because new tools are making new insights possible and freeing scientists to ask questions that could never before be asked. What are some of those new tools, new insights, new questions?
