Are We Alone for 03/09/09 - Building Better Brains

Are We Alone - "Building Better Brains"
Forgot your own birthday? Misplaced your Shih Tzu? Did you put the milk in your backpack and the iPod in the fridge? Age may bring wisdom but - alas - not a boost in RAM. But there's hope - scientists are discovering that the brain is more malleable than thought. We'll hear about the science of neuroplasticity and what you can do to slow that cerebellum slide. Ever been to a brain gym?

Plus, why the brains of London cabbies are bigger than those of your average commuter.

You can listen to this and other episodes at, and be sure to check out Are We A Blog?, the companion blog to the radio show.
