Neuro Henry on brain, science and medicine.

Here’s the listen again link to the Free thinking program with Henry Marsh — neurosurgeon.

 He puts the cap on notion of the soul and afterlife, so basically you can relax on that front. By the sounds of it unlikely we’ll be returning as frogs or anything wiggly. He also somewhat dismisses the implied significance of left/right brain divisions, saying it’s not as absolute as previously purported by some factions. There’s a whole wadge of other stuff, but due to poor memory I cannot recall.  It’s probably the most engaging thing I have heard on this yellow brick road of lunching with logic.  Maybe because it’s audio. Maybe because he’s a bit of a skeptic, which appeals to my first language: pessimism.
