Neuropod on stress, genes, hobbits and hearing

The latest edition of the neuroscience podcast Neuropod has just hit the tubes and has sections on stress, genetics and culture in birdsong, the ongoing debate about homo florensis and hearing.

One of the most interesting sections is the part on stress, and accompanies a special collection of articles on stress in Nature Reviews Neuroscience.

It also contains the phrase, ‘the frontal lobes are the goldilocks of the brain’, which I can’t help but love.
