2014 October 22

Long before the Egyptians began building pyramids, Neolithic European man built a vast temple complex at the very north of Scotland.  Neil Oliver investigates the recent discovery of a 5,000-year-old temple in Orkney.

In this honest, raw talk, neuroscientist Sandra Aamodt uses her personal story to frame an important lesson about how our brains manage our bodies.  She explores the science behind why dieting not only doesn't work, but is likely to do more harm than good.
