Episode 12 : “The Autistic Brain” edition (audio)

Posted by jnshaumeyer on 9 September 2013

Streamed live on 9 September 2013

We talked with Temple Grandin and Richard Panek, authors of “The Autistic Brain : Thinking Across the Spectrum” about autism and sensory disorders and neurological brain-imaging tools and thinking in pictures and thinking in patterns, and lots of other stuff too. As Richard put it, we covered a lot of ground, and our guests were generous with amusing anecdotes and amazing insights.

We recorded this episode in collaboration with Scientific American, and we are grateful to them for their support and most excellent production help.
