Ep. 56 – Ghost in the Skull (Science Makes Ghosts)

In this special Halloween episode, the three apparitions creep up on the knowledge that scientists replicate the feeling of ghosts using ‘slave’ robots!  Brain lesions localize the sensory illusions in the brain that cause a ‘feeling of presence.’ Raj shares the lamest ghost story ever (it involves Marc Anthony), Jono recounts that Meriwether Lewis tried to kill himself with adventure, and Joe explains his weird relationship with great blue herons (also available on iTunes).

The Paper: “Neurological and Robot-Controlled Induction of an Apparition” (Blanke et al., 2015).
