Podcasts: Talking to neuroscientists

The Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at University College London has put together a nice collection of interviews with four eminent neuroscientists, called Today’s Neuroscience, Tomorrow’s History, available as transcripts, videos or podcasts. The researchers profiled are Uta Frith, known for her research on autism spectrum disorders; Richard Gregory, who worked for many years on visual perception; child psychiatry researcher Michael Rutter; and neuropsychologist Elizabeth Warrington. These interviews are impressively extensive, in each case covering the neuroscientist’s education, influences as well as an in-depth discussion of their areas of research.
