Episode One Hundred And Fifty Three – On Mice And Minds – Interview With Dr Emma Burrows

Welcome to episode one hundred and fifty-three!

Dr Burrows, of the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health in Melbourne, has been given a Victoria Fellowship to continue her study in new touchscreen technology, which aims to improve treatment for dementia, schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorders.

For this episode of the Token Skeptic, we discuss her work and the claims of the “educational exercise program” known as Brain Gym, with suggestions as to how to sensibly and skeptically approach such practices.

Dr Emma Burrows also presented at the 2012 Science and Feminism session of “Cherchez la Femme“, which is a monthly gathering of current affairs and popular culture from a feminist perspective.

Theme songs are “P&P” by Derek K. Miller of  www.penmachine.com and “Leap Second” by Milton Mermikides, of  www.miltonmermikides.com, and “Good Morning Moon” by Marian Call.
