In their 2014 book 'Do Zombies Dream of Undead Sheep?', Professors Timothy Verstynen and Bradley Voytek use the popular topic of zombies to explain various neurological processes. They do this by treating zombies as if they are regular patients, performing a systematic neurological investigation to link their classic behaviours back up to the brain. In this podcast, Timothy Versynen talks to Raj Persaud about what zombies can teach us about the human brain.
