Broadcast Times: Sunday, 7am on AM 820 and 9pm on 93.9FM
Scientists are trying to develop a detailed map of the human brain. For some scientists, the goal isn't just to map the brain; it's to crack the mystery of consciousness.
I've heard To the Best of Our Knowledge on other stations in the Midwest and am excited that WNYC is broadcasting this series on consciousness. Top flight questions and impressively gnarly thinking: keeping my mind alive.
You know, all this right brain left/brain stuff has been pretty discounted except as a lovely poetic idea. Lovely poetic ideas are nice.
