Hackademia: Zombie Psychology

In Hackademia, we spotlight academic work across the disciplines that hacks and slashes its way to the bloody, gory truth about zombies!

On April 13th, 2009, Dr. Steven C. Schlozman, an assistant professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and a lecturer at the Harvard School of Education, gave a lecture on zombies for Coolidge Corner Theatre’s Science On Screen program.

Thankfully, the Phoenix posted the whole lecture as a video. Check it out below and learn what might make Zombie brains tick.
