Medical science can, and often does very successfully, use electrical stimulation to help trigger responses in the human body. However, the specificity of the stimulation needed (i.e. not zapping everything in the nearby radius) has long meant these sorts of implants were limited to pacemakers and cochlear implants. ...But not for long if our guest's research is anything to go by. A current research fellow investigating the use of light stimulation on genetically targeted neurons, Dr. McCormick is on the cutting edge of a potentially game changing technique in the treatment of disease.

Dr. Cameron has been researching the amounts of dietary protein needed for optimum muscle retention in the older male - and it seems to be far above the WHO approved recommendation. So listen in, then chuck a loving legume at your 70+ fam.

Lena's been researching how our relationship with our many connected screens affects our productivity. C'mon, gang: all that time spent on your computer working - yes, you benefit from having the world's knowledge at your fingertips... but you also have Facebook, Twitter and your fledgling FarmVille habit to feed. How do we play to our strengths and counter our bad habits? And how do we acknowledge what those habits are in the first place?

Victoria and Penelope have been chosen to lead the NZ delegation of the United States Leadership Tour - a month long trip facilitated by United Nations Youth NZ to the Harvard National Model United Nations conference in Boston. Simulating the activites of the real UN, the conference brings together 3000 students from around the globe to deal with global issues via a number of roles. With both women already boasting an impressive uni transcript, what does it mean for them to now be representing NZ concerns at an international level?

Chelsea asks if the romance industry places as much pressure on the average NZ male as it does their female counterparts. Do men feel the need to couple up? Are they happy staying single or are our perceptions skewed by shitty movies and reality TV?

Louis' interactive performance piece Eat My Rice asks an audience to redefine their concept of 'the other' through one of the most shareable, easily accepted aspects of a culture: its food. As part of this year's Elam Graduate Art Showwhat does Louis' work hope to create with an audience's participation?

With the madness of hand-in for the Elam Graduate Art Show only _just_ behind her, Vikki's in studio to talk about how the proliferation of screens affect the viewing politics of art. Is the advent of the infinite screen scroll democratizing art? Or homogenizing it?

Virues-Ortega joins Mikey to enlighten him about 'Applied Behaviour Analysis'. Hold on, this all sounds very academic. Is it? Just what is ABA and what can it be used for?

Ben's been doing the hard yards so you don't have to: setting up and monitoring many native kauri, gleaning data that will help us understand how native plants are affected by our changing climate. And therefore, hopefully, one day help us better understand ways to protect our native gems as we forge into an uncertain future. On ya, Ben.
