This Podcast episode is in English. Dr. Jenny Rodger, neuroscientist and associate professor at the University of Western Australia talks with me about the newest cutting-edge developments in neuroscience.
She explains to us how the brain learns and what we know so far about the process of learning. We learn also how neuroscientists are now trying to help people forget by changing brains from the outside.
We get an insight into the newest cutting-edge research on reinforcing memories or weakening memories in the brain through repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation and optogenetics to help people forget traumatic memories and cure post-traumatic stress disorder, and we hear how this applies to learning.
