About This Episode

Your brain controls and coordinates everything your body does from the movement of your fingers to your heart rate. It also plays a crucial role in how you control and process your emotions. 

In this episode of BrainStorm, host Meryl Comer continues her conversation with Dr. Larry Cahill, Professor of Neurobiology and Behavior at the University of California, Irvine. They discuss why sex matters in neuroscience and how it influences the brain and emotional memory. Dr. Cahill’s research on sex-based differences gained national media attention around the sleep medication Ambien when it showed that women were negatively affected by the prescribed dosing for men.
