Episodios

  • Paying attention to ADHD

    19/04/2013 Duración: 32min

    Is ADHD overdiagnosed? How can parents and teachers help those affected? What happens when ADHD children enter adulthood? And do diet and genes pave the way to developing the disorder? Plus in the news, we turn on pleasure pathways through music and find out what gets a Prof up with the larks... Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists

  • Get Lost! Navigating the Brain

    20/03/2013 Duración: 30min

    Combining virtual reality and treadmills to map navigation in the brain. We ask how starlings flock in such a synchronised murmuration. And in the news, inducing creativity by electrically tweaking human brains, how video games could help national security, plus we find out what's been keeping Professor Gage up all night!

  • Addicted to Love?

    20/02/2013 Duración: 30min

    What happens when you fall into, and out of, love? We get to the bottom of the cuddle hormone oxytocin and find out if the contraceptive pill is good for relationships. And we navigate our way around a fruit flies brain to find out how pheromones make them in the mating mood. Plus, we'll explore if it's scientifically possible, and even ethical, to bring on love in humans. Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists

  • Probing Parkinson's

    20/01/2013 Duración: 31min

    Why are researchers punching into people's skin if they are on a quest for knowledge about the brain? What does the birth of new brain cells do for memory? Plus can a 'tumour paint' be developed to help beat brain cancer? And can we shed those post Christmas extra inches by doing difficult maths problems, instead of hitting the treadmill?

  • The Genetics of Brain and Behaviour

    14/12/2012 Duración: 30min

    Could genetics pave the way for developing schizophrenia or Alzheimer 's disease? Is there a genetic link between optimism and obesity? Is it ethical to screen people's DNA? Plus we find out what a nap might do for your memory, how a new study is turning addiction treatment on its head and we unravel what it means to be human. Plus we unzip whether DNA might make for an extremely high IQ! Like this podcast? Please help us by supporting the Naked Scientists

  • Smart Drugs, Anyone?
