Podcast – Interview: Jonathan Howard on Errors of Thinking in Medicine

Jonathan and Chris interview Jonathan Howard, a neurologist in New York who wrote a book that will make you, the patient, understand a bit more how your doctor is thinking. Howard is interested in how the brain fires (and misfires), which led him to write this book about the biases in the thinking of doctors and patients that can lead to correct answers… but that sometimes result in errors.

This episode plunges you into a real-life episode of ER, with medical scenarios that will illustrate what went wrong. It’s medicine from the brain’s side of the gurney!
