Circus & Science: About Balls and the Brain

What happens when you put a neuroscientist like professor Maarten Frens and a juggler and psychologist like Harm van der Laan together? They geek out about juggling and explain some circus-based science research about how how jugglers use mirror neurons, ordinary failures and a super power-like skill such as slow motion seeing to break down their tasks and grow their cerebral cortex’s big enough to do more complex juggling. Fascinating work out of Erasmus University.
