Consultant podcasts: Dr Angus Nisbet

19 September 2019

Our Consultant Neurologist and Sleep Physician, Dr Angus Nisbet,  talks with The London Podcast's Adrian Lacey in this two-part discussion on consciousness.

In part one Dr Nisbet discusses consciousness, some of the difficulties with it and what’s going on in the brain to make it happen.

In part two, he further explores the ideas considered in part one and discusses whether your spine can 'think'.

Dr Nisbet is currently writing on the themes explored here, with the working title "The Treble Soul: the Three Mysteries of Human Consciousness".

Both parts can be listened to by searching the below titles:

  • Part one - "How do we know we know?"
  • Part two - "Can your spine think? And other problems."
