New Frontiers in Alzheimer's Audiobook

New Frontiers in Alzheimer's

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Erica Sullivan, Kate Mulligan, Mack Sanderson, Traber Burns Release Date: November 2021

Until recently, one idea has dominated research in treating Alzheimer's disease: the amyloid hypothesis. Those therapies have repeatedly fallen short, and in this audiobook we take a look at where that hypothesis stands today. We examine recent research into the spectrum of disease causes, including inflammation and immune dysfunction; cutting-edge treatments, including deep-brain stimulation and magnetic resonance-guided focused ultrasound; as well as lifestyle interventions that can help protect from disease.

Wild Ideas in Science Audiobook

Wild Ideas in Science

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Bernadette Dunne, John Lescault, Kirsten Potter, Mack Sanderson Release Date: November 2021

Science history is chock full of world-changing innovations that initially faced skepticism and ridicule for being too unconventional: light bulbs, cars, and home computers are just a few examples. In this audiobook, we take a look at the latest out-of-the-box ideas to tackle today's biggest challenges, including so-called sponge cities designed to combat flooding, technology that mimics photosynthesis to produce fuel, modifying bacteria's genetic circuits to treat genetic diseases, and much more.

Stressed Out: Causes, Effects, and Keeping Calm Audiobook

Stressed Out: Causes, Effects, and Keeping Calm

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Suzie Althens Release Date: October 2021

Chronic stress makes people sick. The fight-or-flight response activates our bodies to face immediate threats, but that stress system must turn off to allow organs to recover. Constant anxiety keeps the system active, and in this audiobook we examine the effects of ongoing stress and trauma on both body and mind as well as ways to arm ourselves against adversity by managing stress and building resilience.

Technology vs. Truth: Deception in the Digital Age

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Lloyd James Release Date: October 2021

In the digital age, information, both true and false, spreads faster than ever. The same technology that provides access to data across the globe can abet the warping of truth and normalization of lies. In this audiobook, we examine the intersection of truth, untruth, and technology, including how social media manipulates behavior, technologies such as deepfakes that spread misinformation, the bias inherent in algorithms, and more.

Black Holes: Going to Extremes Audiobook

Black Holes: Going to Extremes

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Alex Boyles Release Date: October 2021

Once dismissed as a mathematical curiosity, black holes are so strange they almost defy belief. Since their existence was confirmed, research into the nature of black holes has opened up new vistas in physics. In this audiobook, we examine some of the most fascinating discoveries about black hole formation and behavior, the new and evolving research in gravitational wave astronomy, theoretical possibilities such as wormholes, and much more.

Fragile Brain: Neurodegenerative Diseases

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Suzie Althens Release Date: May 2021

Brain diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's affect an estimated one in six Americans and are increasing in incidence as the population ages. In this audiobook, we examine these and other conditions involving the damage and loss of neurons, including other forms of dementia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), and multiple sclerosis (MS).

The Secrets of Consciousness Audiobook

The Secrets of Consciousness

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: May 2021

Consciousness is more than mere awareness. It's how we experience the world, how we turn input into experience. Once the province of philosophy, religion, or perhaps fantasy, neuroscientists have added a scientific voice to the discussion, using available medical technology to explore just what separates so-called "mind" from brain. In this audiobook, we look at what science has to say about one of humankind's most fundamental, existential mysteries.

The Science of Memory Audiobook

The Science of Memory

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Coleen Marlo Release Date: May 2021

Why can you vividly recall the day your father took you to your first baseball game many years ago, but you can't remember where you just put the car keys? The process of how-and what-we remember is a fascinating window into who we are and what makes us tick. In this audiobook, we explore what science can and can't tell us about memory.

Trailblazers: Women in Science Audiobook

Trailblazers: Women in Science

Author: Scientific American Narrator: Suzie Althens Release Date: May 2021

Sally Ride, the first American woman to go to space, once said that she didn't set out to be a role model, but after her first flight, she realized that she was one. Like her, the twelve women scientists in this collection became unintentional heroes through perseverance and hard work, making great discoveries in all areas of science. From Vera Rubin's examination of the internal dynamics of galaxies to Nobel Prize winner May-Britt Moser's study of the brain's GPS-like navigation system, Trailblazers highlights the achievements of women who became role models for us all.
