It seems that every other day there is another news story or article touting some breakthrough in the world of neuroscience. This can tend to cause even the most ardent science lover to be confused as to what the practical applications are of the brain research we keep hearing about. This week on Skepticality, Derek speaks with Dr. Robert A. Burton, author of On Being Certain, about his latest book A Skeptic’s Guide to the Mind. Dr. Burton’s latest focus is on identifying the strengths and limitations of modern neuroscience.
