Think Science: Memory

Feb 17, 2017
Disney/Pixar

What happens to us when something… happens? How do humans make memories, and where do they go in our brains? Does the mind work like a filing cabinet, or is it more like your computer’s hard drive? And what happens to the brain when memory starts to fail? These are some of the questions we asked of two panelists at our lunchtime discussion, Think Science: Memory.

It’s no secret that the U.S. population is aging rapidly. No one is immune. And with aging comes frailty, disease, disabilities, memory loss and more. But what if ….

What if life could be lived with vigor and vitality throughout your lifespan? What if you could grow older in a healthy and wholesome manner? That’s the goal of UT Health’s Barshop Institute for Longevity and Aging Studies and the subject of our next Think Health Science presentation on March 21.

Texas Public Radio has expanded coverage into Gonzales and the I-10 corridor with the return of KCTI 1450 AM to the airwaves of Central Texas. The station, acquired by TPR late in 2016, had been silent for almost a year. This expansion provides a vital in-depth news and information source to Gonzales, Luling, Flatonia, and surrounding areas, and continues the growth of Texas Public Radio, which already serves five other areas of the state.

You can find the coverage map of 1450 AM at this link.

TPR Debuts Six New Programs In January

Dec 16, 2016

Dear Friends, 

The strains of “Auld Lang Syne” will have a special poignancy for public radio fans this year, given the retirement of some of our long-time favorite personalities and shows. Diane Rehm will be retiring at the end of this year. Garrison Keillor has already left A Prairie Home Companion. And the Best of Car Talk, a compilation show that allowed the laughter to continue despite Tom Magliozzi’s death in 2014, will soon be discontinued.
