BBC Reith Lectures 2003

(Pretty old)

Was listening to the first of the Reith 2003 lectures. I was feeling very emotional when the possible evolutionary reason for laughter was brought up. [via The Scian Kitchen] This is a must listen for almost anybody interested in Science. Dr.VSR’s talents do not end with cognitive neuroscience/medicine. He’s an excellent speaker as well.

As an aside about evolution, I often feel that we might be walking into the trap of assuming something and attempting to explain everything through that window. Ofcourse, this is just a (entirely non scientific) feeling.
