Brain Science

If you want to learn more about the human brain, Brain Science is the best podcast to choose.

It is hosted by Ginger Campbell, MD., an emergency physician.

Spoiler alert – some of the discussions contain scientific terms that may sound too technical for lay individuals.

The human brain is such a very interesting subject to study. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to learn about the inner workings of the brain without going through the scientific jargons.

On the other hand, it is also hard to be too trusting about what others say about the brain.

For example, many people claim that Lumosity helps prevent dementia. Others say omega-3 fatty acids boost brain health.

It’s not that there is no truth to these claims. But, non-scientific websites offer very little information to make these claims completely make sense to non-scientist audience.

This is when listening to Brain Science podcast will prove to be very helpful. Each topic is discussed by an expert and everything is based on their research.

You can rest assured that all the information presented here is based from scientific studies.

Just a heads up, all the episodes posted before January 2013 can only be accessed through premium subscription. But, from that date onwards all episodes are yours to listen for free.

Recommended episodes for first-time listeners:

Episode 93: Pain (Part 1)
