“Using Worms to Crack the Human Brain” — Podcast 4: Scott Emmons


Ben chats with Scott W. Emmons, Ph.D., a professor of neuroscience and genetics at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Dr. Emmons talks about his cutting-edge connectomics research, which may help us understand how neural circuits “decide” on a particular behavior. Though his recent work focuses on the nervous systems of microscopic worms, its implications may reach all the way to the human brain.

Enjoy, and feel free to email us questions and suggestions for next time!
