Like The Stone Roses of the neuroscience world, Nature Neuroscience’s podcast department created a fantastic first release and then went tragically silent.
Now they’ve made a comeback with a brand new programme, and I’m told we are to expect regular podcasts for the foreseeable future.
The programmes are being made in collaboration with the respected neuroscience education charity, the Dana Foundation, and include discussions and interviews with scientists who have been responsible from some of the most exciting recent research.
The latest edition covers the use of key chill-pepper ingredient capsaicin as the basis of a pain killer, the military uses of neuroscience for soldier optimisation, and how learning is affected by stress.
A welcome return and a great comeback edition.
