An Organ of Mystery

Sep 19, 2013

Do you ever wonder why, at a loud party, you are able to comprehend what the person next to you is saying? It’s not because they are louder… It’s due to your brain’s ability to filter and hone in on certain stimuli.

Today on River To River, we focus on the science of the brain with three prominent neuroscientists visiting Iowa. Host Ben Kieffer talks with them about their research on the sense of sound and gets their thoughts on the latest brain-science news.

Today's guests include: John Brugge, Emeritus Full Professor of neuroscience at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, George Pollak, Professor of neurobiology at the University of Texas, and Brett Schofield, Full Professor at Northeastern Ohio Medical University in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology.
