First Post-KickStarter Episode of NEURO.tv

After an extremely successful KickStarter campaign (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/410389794/neurotv-discussion-among-scientists-and-philosophe) we raised enough money to meet our goal. It's too bad we didn't meet our stretch goal because I would've loved to have seen our President, Jean-Francois be taught how to dance dubstep. I am truly excited for our first episode (which you can find here: goo.gl/Q8D7HU) and hope this great concept for a show will last for many seasons to come.

For our first episode our special guest is Katherine Bryant (Twitter: @EvoNeuro). Katherine is neuroscience PhD student at Emory University studying primate cortical evolution, the main topic of conversation during our episode. Specifically we talk about the visual system across different primate species and how this system may have evolved. We also have a short chat about freedom of speech and activism within academia. I hope everyone enjoys this first episode and I am very excited for the rest of the season 1. I won't give away all of the guests but one of the our other guests is the famous neuroscientist, Dale Purves who is not only an expert in vision but has written one of the canonical introductory neuroscience textbooks used by many undergraduate and graduate neuroscience programs.

  1. Dr. Miller, I'm enjoying the Neuro.TV podcast. I'm active listener who also has a desire to learn neuroscience but doesn't have the PhD or Masters to prove it. I also have epilepsy which is another reason why I studying this area. Looking forward to the next episode.

  4. The current average annual cardiovascular technician pay
    inside U.S.A can be $53,000.this salary is actually
    calculated through some other parts of an STATES and
    the whole of most of these paydays is actually subdivided
    by the overall number of regions considered. So,You will
    discover regions during which cardiovascular technicians
    earns in excess of the particular average although You will
    find others coming from different.
