Your Brain On Parasites

Your Brain On Parasites

This hour, we’ll talk about how microscopic creatures can infest the minds of much larger beings – and how they can affect their personalities – with Kathleen McAuliffe. She’s the author of “This is Your Brain on Parasites: How Tiny Creatures Manipulate Our Behavior and Shape Society” (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt).
