Guest: Dima Amso

Every day, it seems, neuroscience is adding to our understanding of the way we think, the way we know, the way we understand, empathize, and emote. Dima Amso studies how the development of the human mind shapes our perception of the world. 


Guest: Daniela Lamas

The remarkable strides made in medicine, such as the interventions that keep people alive, and the choices those technologies present to both patients and doctors, have been lost in a lot of the political debate about healthcare. Dr. Daniela Lamas, documents those choices and their consequences in a beautiful new book, You Can Stop Humming Now: A Doctor’s Stories of Life, Death and In Between.
