On My Mind – An Interview

I recently presented a poster at the annual Neuroscience conference in San Diego, California. Over 30,000 fabulous people were in attendance. While I was there I was interviewed by On Your Mind, an engaging weekly neuroscience podcast. The interview was afflicted by some slight sound troubles (and I’m distracted easily), but I think it turned out well. If you’re interested have a listen —

On Your Mind: SFN – U.S.A.

For the lazy: My interview is between 24:33 and 35:35, but I highly suggest you listen to the whole episode.

  1. Wow, can’t wait to listen in. And to the entire thing, since the subject fascinates me silly.
    30,000? You have me beat by a factor of three at least. Of course it helps if one is blinded by the flood-lights, but 30K souls, properly stirred to action and all of one mind are a serious fighting force.

  2. Yes, you are correct; at least half of that crowd was murmuring in the background, ha.
    And now I’m wondering what the electrodes would say while, as a pole vaulter, I stood at the beginning of the runway and imagined the whole vault. Parietal or motor…um… fibrillation? It’s an open question whether scantily-clad onlookers contributed-to as much as they hindered intentional thought.
    (Loved your aside about the Q-states of the ball’s electrons)
    Thanks for posting; I’m a better primate for reading and listening.

    • We actually changed recording locations about 4 times, which is pretty obvious in the recording. Being recorded made me much more aware of surrounding distractions. Also, I try to use quantum physics as comic relief whenever I can.

      • I’m eager to read, calmly, the paper. And ‘How can it be that way?’ is itself a cosmic-relief joke on us, a penalty for peeling the last layer of the onion.
        You caught the ‘These are there (sic) stories typo on the pod-site?
