title Towards Manipulative Neuroscience based on Brain-Network-Interface
description Kawato describes his work with robotics and neurobiology, working towards better brain computer interfaces. Another interesting video on razor-edge research (beyond cutting edge) from Neuroinformatics 2008. There are some technical problems; fast-forward a bit because the speaker begins at 2:38, and audio begins at 3:36.

Sleeping Pills: More Harm than Good

title How Sleeping Pills Can Harm You
description "Can sleeping pills do more harm than good? Join us for this provocative and informative program exploring the new class of 'improved' sleeping pills [the 'Z drugs' zolpidem/Ambien, zaleplon, and zopiclone]. According to recent research by Daniel Kripke, M.D., professor of psychiatry at UCSD School of Medicine, sleeping pills may increase depression and lead to a higher incidence of certain diseases. Sleeping pills may actually shorten people's lives." Dr. Kripke has been researching sleep, sleeping pills, and the benefits of light treatment for over 30 years. Related: Ambien Outrage is a consumer site compiling anecdotal evidence on people victimized by the drug.
