14 Nov Dr Debra Soh
The Renegade Report is joined by neuroscientist and columnist Dr Debra Soh on this instalment of the show. Debra describes the burgeoning field of sexual neuroscience, the need to keep science apolitical, and the importance of trying to answer even those questions which scare us. Jonathan queries the controversy around obvious male and female differences - despite the overwhelming evidence supporting this, and Roman probes the validity of functional MRI in being able to make exact truth claims. Dr Soh explains the significant influence of testosterone on brain formation and subsequently behaviour, the reason academics are fearful of stepping forward against bad ideas, and the role of paraphilias in sexual attraction.
