    Here's a link to Talk of the Nation: Science Friday with Ira Flatow:

    leeches and arthritis

    You can listen to the show a variety of ways and don't necessarily need to download it as a podcast. I just thought the topic was interesting. If you peruse the website you'll find many other shows worth listening to.

    Hint: Once you're on the website, look in the upper right corner of the screen. The grey box has the links to download the shows.

    I thought about posting this in the Persistence of Memory thread but then thought it made more sense here. Here's the summary for the podcast:

    quote: <hr> Then, we'll turn our attention to memory and learning. New research shows the uncanny role that unconscious memory plays in the learning process. In work with patients with a brain injury that prevents them from forming conscious memories of new events, researchers found that the patients could 'unconsciously' learn to perform an object recognition task -- successfully picking out the correct items from a set, even though the patients had no idea why they were picking up the objects. Describing the feeling he had while working with the objects, one patient said “It seems to be automatic...My mind just seemed to tell me, ‘just pick it up, it’s the right one’.” We'll talk with one of the researchers about habits and learning, and how we can make memories without even knowing it. <hr>

    Interesting topic. A young guy where I worked whose hippocampus was mostly blown away by a ruptured AVM (he was 15) had a short term memory of about 10-15 seconds. The gloomy forecast from the surgeons was that he would need lifetime care and supervision because he would get lost constantly and be unable to plan for anything, even eating and hygeine. The Rehab specialist said: "total rubbish".
    This young fellow learned quickly to write things down as they were uttered; returned to school and finished school quite well.
    He did say, after he returned home and to school, that, as long as he could glance at the notebook, he could sequence quite well. Once that was done, he retained information very well and he learned new things as well. He also said: 'Something inside tells me what I should do next.'

    If you click on the link above and choose (once on the new page) from the grey box on the right the audio link to Eric Kandel you will be treated to excellent discussion on learning and memory from a Nobel laureate.

    Here's a talk about happiness. They speak a bit about pain also as well as how these types of things are represented neurologically.

    Caffeinated beer!

    Now that I've got your attention, check out this Science Friday podcast about sleep. . Many patients complain of sleep disturbances so I thought learning a bit more about it would be worth their time. And yes, they bring up the topic of caffeinated beer, although I can't get too excited about it. They also touch on restless leg syndrome.

    Here's some of the best (science oriented) Podcasting I've heard lately.

    Enjoy.

    edit: The first (vodoo science) is a bit less polished than the others but the content is still good. The two with Michael Gazzinga are great fun to listen to.

    Here's another podcast but this one costs money (8 bucks a segment--"special price"). I haven't purchased it so I can't tell you if they're any good but the topics sound interesting.
