Carl Zimmer: Unlocking Secrets of the Human Brain

In his new cover article for National Geographic magazine, science writer Carl Zimmer explores the inner workings of the human mind, and delves into the latest technologies on mapping the brain and finding out what specific neurons do - including one neuron that's only triggered by pictures of Jennifer Aniston. We talk with Zimmer about how far the science of the mind has come - and how far it still needs to go before we can answer questions about consciousness and free will. Host: Michael Krasny Guests: Christof Koch, chief science officer, Allen Institute for Brain Science Carl Zimmer, science writer who contributes frequently to National Geographic and The New York Times and three-time winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Journalism Award

Science Weekly podcast: the waking nightmare of sleep paralysis

This week's edition is dedicated to the little understood phenomenon of "sleep paralysis": the experience of waking from sleep (or waking at the point of entering sleep) and being unable to move. It can be accompanied by hallucinations, fear, the sense of a "presence" in the room and the feeling of crushing pressure on the chest. People who have an episode of sleep paralysis will sometimes attribute it to something paranormal, such as attempted alien abduction. Christopher French, professor of psychology at Goldsmiths College London, and film maker Carla MacKinnon came into the studio to discuss The Sleep Paralysis Project where artistic and scientific perspectives on the condition come together to shine a light on this neurological glitch in our normal waking pattern. http://www.theguardian.com/science/audio/2013/aug/05/podcast-science-weekly-sleep-paralysis

The Science and Function of Dreams

We close our eyes at night and dream. Sometimes beautifully, sometimes fitfully, sometimes frighteningly. But why? The ancients looked for omens. Sigmund Freud saw clues from our past. Some researchers now say dreams help us brace for the future. Ben Franklin advised a light supper, clean sheets, fresh air, and as little dreaming as possible — to avoid painful dreams. And what about nightmares? Can we, should we, rewrite them? We spend a lot of our lives dreaming. What’s it all about? http://www.onpointradio.org/2010/08/science-dreams
