Transcripts Are Now Available for ALL Episodes of BSP

I am happy to announce that thanks to the combined efforts of Diane Jacobs, Jenine John and Lori Wolfson transcripts are now available for Episodes 1-58 of the Brain Science Podcast.  Click here to find your favorite episode.

Thanks to the rapid turn around by Lori Wolfson, future episodes should appear in the show notes as new episodes are posted.  Lori is also working to transcribe past and future episodes of Books and Ideas.

Listener donations help make these transcripts possible.

The next project will be to make it easier for you to find older episodes. I hope to get to work on that after I get back from Alaska on June 20, 2009.

More Episode Transcripts Are Now Available

Thanks to Lori Wolfson, Jenine John, and Diane Jacobs we are gradually increasing our library of Brain Science Podcast tanscripts.  The transcripts are available as PDF downloads.


If you don't see the episode you want please let me know. I hope to have all back episodes transcribed by the end of 2009, but I am giving priority to episodes that are requested by listeners.

Transcript Now Available for Episode 8 (Neurotransmitters)

Episode 8 of the Brain Science Podcast was a detailed discussion of how neurons communicate via neurotransmitters. Many listeners found the material challenging, so I am happy to announce that I have just posted a transcript of Episode 8. Jenine Johns did an excellent job.

If you haven't had a chance to listen to Episode 8, I highly recommend doing so because the material will be relevant to next week's episode of the Brain Science Podcast.

Note: A transcript for Episode 42, the discussion of Robert Burton's book, On Being Certain is also available.

Transcript of György Buzsáki's Interview Is Now Online
