EVERY EPISODE OF MIND FIELD IS NOW FREE for the rest of the year! To celebrate, I asked a group of colleagues who worked with me on the series to sit down at Vsauce HQ and watch through three entire episodes. We go behind the scenes, elaborate on topics in the episodes, and dig in to what impact working on Mind Field has had on their current research.

GUESTS:

Samuel Veissière, PhD
Assistant Professor Department of Psychiatry, McGill University

Elisabeth de Kleer
Producer/Director

Daniel Toker
Neuroscience PhD Candidate, UC Berkeley

Judy Ho, PhD, ABPP
