Jerry Trumbule, M.A., ABD and I speak on a live episode about the brain, communication, autism, animal intelligence, and Second Life. In particular. We comment on “Inside Animal Minds” which can be found in the March 2008 issue of National Geographic and also “The Truth About Autism: Everything You Know Is Wrong” which is in the March 2008 issue of Wired Magazine. The Wired article is about Amanda Baggs and it helps if you take a look at this video on YouTube. We also talk about an amazing presentation by Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D., a neuroscientist who had a sort of nirvana experience of her right brain after her left brain was knocked out by a stroke. Here is a link to her “must see” video.
