This riveting issue of Scientific American Mind, a magazine focused on psychology and neuroscience news, features a cover story about the nature of consciousness, particularly as it relates to synesthesia, a neurological condition in which the brain mixes up different types of sensory perception. An additional six articles cover a wide range of topics including the relationship between relaxation and productivity, the effect of winter on state of mind, and the nature of "first impressions" and how they affect the way people perceive one another in the long run, among other fascinating articles.

Voice actor Mark Moran skillfully narrates these entrancing pieces, his clear, crisp enunciation and thoughtful pacing contributing to an extremely enjoyable and educational listener experience.

      "Good Issue..."

      Brevity is always a disadvantage when it comes to articles about complicated scientific principles or complex theories or syndromes, and thus such articles much be compelling and well-written to be effective. This is definitely one of the better issues of this magazine, as the articles are such, especially the one on synesthesia, co-written by the brilliant neurologist Ramachandran.
