Maria Konnikova: How to Think like Sherlock Holmes

Posted By on Wed, Oct 26, 2016 at 3:19 PM


On "HumanLab: The Science Between Us," Amy Alkon interviews the luminaries of behavioral science on how their research can help us have the lives we want.

This is a fascinating show on the difference between seeing and actually observing, and many of the other habits and practices of Sherlock Holmes.

Science writer and psychologist Dr. Maria Konnikova draws on 21st century neuroscience and psychology to show how we can employ Holmes’ thought processes to unlock our own capacities for ever-present mindfulness, astute observation, and logical deduction in order to see more, live more rationally, and, in turn live smarter. Her book we discuss: Mastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes

Therapist Dr. Brandy Engler on Men's and Women's Unspoken Desires

Posted By on Wed, Oct 12, 2016 at 4:12 PM


Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

What do men want? In bed and out? What do women want? How does this all tie together? (And who’s getting tied up?)

These are just a few of the questions I’ll be asking and sex therapist Dr. Brandy Engler will be answering on tonight’s show.

Dr. Engler is unique in that she opened a sex therapy practice for women—expecting to slowly get some clients—and quickly amassed a full list of clients: all men.

Engler and New York Times best-selling biographer David Rensin have just published a fascinating book about her sessions and her insights, The Men On My Couch: True Stories of Sex, Love, and Psychotherapy.

This is your chance to go inside her sessions—to see into the erotic minds of men. And not pervos or deviants, but regular guys. Men we all know.

Beyond the men, we will also see into the minds of the women having sex with these men—or refusing to—and find out why, and what it takes to balance love and eroticism in a relationship.

Using "Mindful Anger" To Improve Every Area Of Your Life, with Dr. Andrea Brandt

Posted By on Wed, Oct 5, 2016 at 8:41 AM


Welcome to Amy Alkon's HumanLab: The Science Between Us, a weekly show with the luminaries of behavioral science.

Whether you're an anger venter or an anger withholder (or something in between), this is a show for you.

My guest tonight, therapist Dr. Andrea Brandt, writes that “our culture has a built-in phobia of negative emotions,” which isolates us from each other and has myriad unhealthy and counterproductive effects on us personally.

Her goal—in her book, Mindful Anger: a pathway to emotional freedom, and on this show—is not to help you get rid of your anger but to help you understand and handle it in healthy and constructive ways. You should, in turn, find that this leads to cascading positive effects in every arena of your life.
