90-Degree Turn

Listened to this Radiolab podcast, “Lost and Found,” while trekking a few miles on the elliptical last evening (while half-watching the Orange get lumped by Georgetown). The full podcast is tremendously interesting to me, but the first 20 minutes on DTD (Developmental Topographical Disorientation) are especially mind-blowing. It builds-up out of a story of serial disorientation and its causes, causes eventually traced to the brain’s ways of processing and regulating spatial orientations, and it makes me want to pick back up the the recent RSQ (40.5) on Neurorhetorics. Go on, listen.
