SPUR 2014: Signal & Noise in the Brain

Resource type
Date created
In a 2012 editorial, the well-respected scientific journal Nature called out the Harper government for muzzling Canadian scientists, claiming it was not allowing scientists to speak freely about their research. Science, ideally, is objective, universal and disinterested, but what happens when politics get in the way? How, as citizens, are we to first understand the scientific signal from the noise, and, second, know when it is presented without an agenda?In a world where it’s getting harder and harder to discern the PR policy press release from objective scientific research, award-winning journalist and writer Chris Turner joins writer, broadcaster and composer Paolo Pietropaolo to discuss the changing nature of science communication.
