Gemma Hill Interviews Stephanie Palmer on Radio Physics

Gemma Hill, a rising junior at Aspen High School interviews Stephanie Palmer, Associate Professor at the University of Chicago in the Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy and the Department of Physics.  She studies how neurons collectively encode incoming information and perform computations on the information. The brain performs several classes of computation including signal comparison, prediction, error correction, and learning. 

  Radio Physics is for everyone! You don't have to be a scientist or even an aficionado to be fascinated by the questions and answers that you'll hear between 4:30 and 5:00 on the fourth Tuesday of every month. Radio Physics is a new collaboration with top high school physics students from Aspen to Rifle, the Aspen Center for Physics, and KDNK Community Radio in Carbondale. Students interview one of the more than 1,000 physicists who visit the Aspen Center for Physics every year. You'll want to know the answer to the questions that they ask. Tune in!
