Extreme Environment Encephalopathy

The brain at its limits…


Ascending Cotopaxi

In this EvolutionMedicine ‘cast, Joe Alcock interviews Darryl Macias about how the brain fails us at high altitude and other dangers of the mountain environment. Darryl discusses his recent expedition to Shishapangma to retrieve the bodies of his climbing partners and friends Alex Lowe and David Bridges who died in an avalanche in 1999. We also talk about diving and gut microbes. Oh, and we also talk about zombies. (Students – this podcast is completely optional, please read the previous two posts.)
