36: Meditation, Predation, and Octopuses with Dr. Cris Niell
By Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience
On this episode, Joe and Misha are joined by Dr. Cris Niell, Associate Professor in the Department of Biology at the University of Oregon. Learn how Dr. Niell is looking at the effects of meditation in the brain, how he got interested in the visual system of the mouse, the work his lab has done on predatory behavior, and why he’s expanding into the looking at the visual system of the octopus. We’ll also finally answer the age-old question: is it octopuses or octopi?
