Olav Krigolson is a neuroscientist looking at decision making and learning in the brain using electroencephalogram (EEG). He’s studied professional athletes and Mars astronauts, and trekked to Himalayan monasteries to see how the brains of master meditators differ from our own. We are joined for this fascinating conversation by Graeme Moffat, chief scientist for Muse.
