Monday on Lake Effect: 'The Serengeti Rules,' Memory Research, Aging & Exercise, Big Data Ethics

Jan 2, 2017

Monday on Lake Effect:

Today on the show, we celebrate all things science with a look back at some of our favorite conversations. First, writer and Sean Carroll talks about his latest book, The Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Life Works and Why it Matters. Then, a recent study looks at the way our minds store and recall short-term memories. Later, while getting older isn’t for the faint hearted, it turns out it’s not for the faint muscled either. And a local researcher talks about the ethical issues with the data you generate online and how it can be used.

Guests:

  • Sean Carroll, author, The Serengeti Rules: The Quest to Discover How Life Works and Why it Matters
  • Brad Postle, professor of psychology and psychiatry, UW-Madison
  • Dr. Sandra Hunter and Dr. Robert Fitts, Marquette University
  • Michael Zimmer, director, Center for Information Policy Research
