The Best of Our Knowledge #1593 "The History Of The Brain"

Apr 1, 2021

There’s a whole lot going on inside our head that we don’t understand. Don’t feel bad, there are a lot of world class experts that are just as puzzled about what makes the human brain tick. Bret Stetka tries to unravel what we actually do know in his new book called “A History of the Human Brain – From the Sea Sponge to CRISPR, How Our Brain Evolved”. Bret Stetka is editorial director at Medscape, the professional division of Web MD. He is also a contributor to NPR and Scientific American.

Also a report on a second chance for some West Point cheaters, and we’ll spend an Academic Minute explaining science.
