Part 3 of a three-part series reviewing the effects of radiation on the brain.
Join in on this grand finale as we review brain tumor development in a pilot who had logged many hours flying aircraft at high altitudes. High altitude pilots at the edge of the Earth’s protective atmospheric shield, and astronauts just beyond it, are exposed to wide barrage of cosmic rays that can damage DNA and increase the risk for tumor development.
This video features a special guest: neuroscientist, Dr. Sandeep Burma, who studies the damaging cellular effects of galactic cosmic radiation.
