Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, interviewing the luminaries of behavioral science.
This week's very exciting show is on a subject that has a great deal of influence over us -- our environment -- that we tend to give very little thought.
Luckily, cognitive neuroscientist Colin Ellard has done the work and thinking for us, and, on this show, will lay out the science of how the places we inhabit change our minds and bodies, and how we can use this knowledge to our benefit.
His book we'll be discussing tonight, Places of the Heart: The Psychogeography of Everyday Life, was a Library of Science Book Club selection.
Join me and all my fascinating guests every Sun from 7-7:30 pm PT and 10-10:30 pm ET, here at blogtalkradio.com/amyalkon or subscribe on iTunes or Stitcher.
And please support the show by buying my science-based, funny book, "Good Manners for Nice People Who Sometimes Say F*ck"
