1 | Can the adult brain make new neurons? Again.

4 minutes

Kevin revisits the notion of whether neurogenesis (growing new neurons) can occur in the adult brain, particularly in the hippocampus. A past episode mentioned a study that said “no” to adult neurogenesis in the brain, bucking current thought. However, a newer paper now supports adult brain neurogenesis. This is fun, isn’t it?


2 | See You at HAPS 2018

5.5 minutes

Kevin once again invites you to the 2018 Annual Conference of the Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) in Columbus Ohio–and to look him and say “hi” while you are there!

3 | Are Learning Styles Real?

12 minutes

Recent buzz about the Husmann/O’Loughlin paper on learning styles prompts a conversation about what learning styles are and are not. And what, if anything, we should do with them.
