This week on the Naked Scientists in Africa we look into the science of the mind! We'll be analysing the psychology of alcohol to find out why we find people more attractive after a drink as well as revealing what happens in the minds of people suffering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We'll also be hearing how a new mapping technique could improve mining across the continent and in Question of the Week we discover if it's possible to& trick a lie detector!
