Next week (April 12) we’re having a look at what happens in the brain when we form new memories, the links between emotion and memory and how these elements change as we age.
Our guest is Professor Pankaj Sah the Director of the Queensland Brain Institute or QBI, from the University of Queensland. Pankaj has done a lot of research into an area of the brain called the amygdala, which plays a role in consolidating new memories and in encoding them with emotional content. There are a lot of interesting ideas in this episode and Pankaj has a great way of simplifying very complicated science.
As always you can hear Daniella and Maurie’s take and thoughts about these ideas in their show Who Cares? which is released every Friday.
