Guest: Sam Payne In the 60’s and 70’s, riding the wave of a folk music revival, three pals named Dick, Dennis, and Duane got together and wrote and performed songs under the name “The 3D’s.” Duane is still around, and still advocating for the power of stories and music as a bridge between generations. Today’s Top of Mind visit from Sam Payne features an oldie: the 3D’s folky setting of Tennyson’s poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade.”

A Breakthrough on Getting Brain Scans on Children with Autism

12 MINS

Guests: Terisa Gabrielsen, Assistant Professor of School Psychology, BYU; Ryan Kellems, Assistant Professor of Counseling Psychology and Special Education, BYU; Mikle South, Associate Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience, BYU  To undergo an MRI, you lie down and slide into a huge machine that makes loud noises while you hold completely still for up to 45 minutes. It’s a stressful thing for anyone –but for a child with autism, it can be totally overwhelming. Which is why not much brain scan research has been done to understand the neuroscience behind autism. But a team of researchers at Brigham Young University and the University of Utah have developed a technique to ease the MRI process for autistic children.
