Today is the first video from the 2017 Hilliard Discussion.  Kicking off our series is Mrs. Gretchen Reynolds, writer for the New York Times.  Mrs. Reynold's talk is called "Out of the Echo Chamber: how to Reach The 'Real' World with Good Research" and looks at how scientists can communicate more effectively with the world.

  • Aloha Ms. Reynolds, I enjoyed your talk, especially the fact that mice do interval workouts and lift weights. No wonder so many folks read that. I also understood your being flumoxed by neural plasticity, for like you, I was taught that once pruning was done around age five or so- you were stuck with a certain number of neurons. As they died off, well, they were gone forever. Knowing that running (or fast walking) can help form neurogenesis - or even speed it up, well, it is mind boggling. I also enjoyed the small aside about learning to write. You nailed that one: for if you want to work for almost free, the Internet will devour almost all the content you can come up with. On the other hand, if you write well and tell interesting stories- you can develop a following- and the riches will poor in from some weird net economic formula. LOL Great talk, good tips, and loved your explanation of Dr. Oz...the formerly respected....yep. Smiles, Kevin
