Opinionated Science Episode 31: Night Owls, Inflatable Implants and Twins' Trauma


In this episode, the TN team looks in depth at three new studies: 

  • An investigation of how personality traits may influence whether you are morning person or night owl
  • An inflatable innovation that could lead to pain-relieving spinal implants becoming commonplace 
  • A study of migraine and PTSD in identical twins that reveals the shared genetic roots of these conditions 

Opinionated Science is Technology Networks’ homemade podcast, where our team of scientists-turned-journalists cut out the chewy jargon and serve up slices of the most fascinating stories from the world of science. Expect a new Opinionated Science every other Friday.
