Never mind the neuro b******s

You know you need this!

  • Learning styles
  • Left brain right brain
  • male brain female brain
  • brain training to stave off Alzheimer’s

All of this pseudoscience is based on slivers of information blown up (usually with a picture of a brain in shot because that convinces us more than anything) and usually aimed at separating us from our money. Neuroenchantment anyone?

Have a listen to Dr Ashok Jansari of Goldsmiths university London, entertainingly demolishing these myths, and expressing the occasional view about some of our politicians along the way.
