I’m over at #SciAm videos, talking about the (potential) neuroprotective effects of a ketogenic diet. The short clip is based on a blog post The Fat-Fueled Brain I wrote a while back for their Guest Blogs (the article’s older sibling, Brain, living on Ketones can be found here).
The talented Dr. Carin Bondar, host of the series, suffered through the process of piecing my camera-dodging, hair-pulling, face-making video clips together (I’m EXTREMELY camera shy). She has my deepest respect.
SciAm also has a great video series called Instant Egghead that’s worth checking out. Fun – and super random- science info in ~2min clips with great graphics. Here’s an example: why toothpaste makes OJ taste bad.
