Autism, Intelligence and Left-Handedness

This special Brain Awareness Week show exercises the grey matter as Professor Chris McManus from the Department of Psychology at University College London talks about left-handedness and why the two halves of the brain are different, Professor Simon Baron-Cohen, Director of the Autism Research Centre in Cambridge, discusses autism and a process called synesthesia, where people hear colours and taste shapes, and Professor Seth Grant from the Sanger Institute at Hinxton describes how genes help your brain to work, and discusses whether they make you intelligent. Continuing our series on Einstein's influence in the home, Philippa Law stews over Brownian Motion and the science in a cup of tea, and Sarah Urquhart, Brian Wallace and Anna Lacey join the fun at the Cambridge Science Festival.
