Guest: Thomas M. Nichols, PhD, University Professor, National Security Affairs, U.S. Naval War College In his prime time speech to the nation Tuesday night, President Donald Trump said Americans are in grave danger from people and drugs sneaking over the US-Mexico border and only a wall can protect us. Trump’s depiction of the situation as a crisis is questionable, since US Customs and Border Protection says the number of people apprehended at the border has been declining for more than a decade. Plus, nearly all of the heroin that comes into the US from Mexico arrives with people legally crossing at ports of entry, which a wall would not fix.

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.
