AD-BrainwavesSensory_4adda4The BBC Radio Scotland series, Brainwaves, explores the science behind our everyday experiences, and nowhere is this centrality of science to our lives more evident – or delicious! – than in the area of food and drink.

Mark Stephen presents a special edition of Brainwaves from the Edinburgh Science Festival with guests Professor Charles Spence of Oxford University, Amanda McDonald Crowley from New York and Andrew Barnett of the microbrewery, Barney’s Beer. The theme will be sensory dining, exploring the science behind eating.

Brainwaves will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio Scotland

This forum was part of GastroFest, at the Edinburgh Science Festival. My participation was part of my 2014 Alt-w Design Informatics curatorial residency with New Media Scotland.

The recording is available online as a podcast here.
