Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. He brain stuff. I'm Lauren Vogel bomb. And our question of the day is does Turkey really make you sleepy America's favorite holiday bird. Does have the makings of a natural sedative in it and amino acid called tripton. Tripped event is an essential amino acid, meaning that you need it. But your body can't manufacture it. The body has to get trip to Finn and other essential amino acids from food trip to vent helps the body produce the B vitamins niacin, which in turn helps you produce. Serotonin serotonin is remarkable chemical that acts as a sort of calming agent in the brain and plays a key role in sleep and trip to Finn is also a precursor to another common compound melatonin. So you might think that if you eat a lot of Turkey, your body would produce more serotonin and melatonin, and you would feel calm and maybe more likely to fall asleep. But nutritionists and other experts say that the trip defend in Turkey probably won't trigger the body to produce more serotonin because defendant works best on an empty stomach. Mc the trip in thanksgiving Turkey has to vibe with all of the other amino acids. The body takes in in order to pass the blood brain barrier and get to work only part of the trip. Defend key dinner will make it to the brain to help produce serotonin. The fact that thanksgiving meals are often carbohydrate heavy actually does help. I think of all the bread stuffing potatoes corn and candied tubers covered marshmallows that we eat before we even get to the real desserts, the insulin. Our bodies releases to process all of that also serves as sort of rideshare vehicles for a lot of amino acids, but not for trip to Finn which hitches a ride to the brain on a protein called albumin. So with most of the competition out of the way, it is. In fact, easier for trip to fin to get into our brain and start the process that leads to the production of more serotonin melatonin. Meanwhile, is produced outside of the brain. So you don't have to worry about that competition at the blood brain barrier. But you do have to worry that you have all the other compounds necessary for your body to create it. Overall. Researchers think it's neither the melatonin nor the Serra Tonen produced from trip to Finn that leads to rampant late afternoon napping on thanksgiving. Most likely it's the whole traditional meal together producing lethargy the average thanksgiving meal contains three thousand calories more than most of us usually eaten a whole day and your body works hard to digest all that food. After all your nervous system is set up to prime your body for maximum nutrient absorption every single time. You eat a part of this is called our rest and digest response when we eat. We excrete more saliva and gastric juices and our heart rate and blood pressure lower. Also, our bodies are sending more blood to our guts in order to help out.

Tune in every Friday for new episodes of happy face a series that doesn't just explore a serial killers mind, but the investigation has daughter needed to walk away whole you can listen and subscribe on apple podcasts the iheartradio app or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. He brain stuff. I'm Lauren Vogel bomb. And our question of the day is does Turkey really make you sleepy America's favorite holiday bird. Does have the makings of a natural sedative in it and amino acid called tripton. Tripped event is an essential amino acid, meaning that you need it. But your body can't manufacture it. The body has to get trip to Finn and other essential amino acids from food trip to vent helps the body produce the B vitamins niacin, which in turn helps you produce. Serotonin serotonin is remarkable chemical that acts as a sort of calming agent in the brain and plays a key role in sleep and trip to Finn is also a precursor to another common compound melatonin. So you might think that if you eat a lot of Turkey, your body would produce more serotonin and melatonin, and you would feel calm and maybe more likely to fall asleep. But nutritionists and other experts say that the trip defend in Turkey probably won't trigger the body to produce more serotonin because defendant works best on an empty stomach. Mc the trip in thanksgiving Turkey has to vibe with all of the other amino acids. The body takes in in order to pass the blood brain barrier and get to work only part of the trip. Defend key dinner will make it to the brain to help produce serotonin. The fact that thanksgiving meals are often carbohydrate heavy actually does help. I think of all the bread stuffing potatoes corn and candied tubers covered marshmallows that we eat before we even get to the real desserts, the insulin. Our bodies releases to process all of that also serves as sort of rideshare vehicles for a lot of amino acids, but not for trip to Finn which hitches a ride to the brain on a protein called albumin. So with most of the competition out of the way, it is. In fact, easier for trip to fin to get into our brain and start the process that leads to the production of more serotonin melatonin. Meanwhile, is produced outside of the brain. So you don't have to worry about that competition at the blood brain barrier. But you do have to worry that you have all the other compounds necessary for your body to create it. Overall. Researchers think it's neither the melatonin nor the Serra Tonen produced from trip to Finn that leads to rampant late afternoon napping on thanksgiving. Most likely it's the whole traditional meal together producing lethargy the average thanksgiving meal contains three thousand calories more than most of us usually eaten a whole day and your body works hard to digest all that food. After all your nervous system is set up to prime your body for maximum nutrient absorption every single time. You eat a part of this is called our rest and digest response when we eat. We excrete more saliva and gastric juices and our heart rate and blood pressure lower. Also, our bodies are sending more blood to our guts in order to help out. Meaning that less is available for the brain. And these skeletal system all of this can make you feel the limb heavy and relaxed also if you drink alcohol with your dinner, you'll likely feel the sedative effect of that as well. But there is a way to take advantage of the trip defend in Turkey. If you have trouble getting to sleep one night while they're still leftover Turkey in the fridge. You can have a late Turkey snack.

"Hey listeners today. I wanted to tell you about a new podcast from how stuff works. Happy face hosted by Melissa Jespersen. More for Melissa nineteen ninety-five was a nightmare. That's the year the teenager learned that her father, Keith hunter Jesperson was the happy face serial killer. Happy face is a stunning tale filled with emotional brutal twists and turns. But ultimately, it's about the quest for a normal life and how we preserve hope. You can hear new episodes of happy face every Friday. It's a series that doesn't just explore a serial killers mind, but the investigation that has daughter needed walkway whole it's available on apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, bring stuff I'm Lauren Volkov. And today's question is would you really stay conscious after being decapitated? Let's look first at what consciousness is the molecular biologist Francis. Crick one half of the research team who discovered the structure of DNA later in his career came up with what he called the astonishing hypothesis. It is crudely put the idea that every aspect of human consciousness from affinity for ones family to a belief in God to the experience of the color. Green is merely the result of electrical activity in our brains neural networks as he wrote in nineteen Ninety-four, you're nothing, but a pack of neurons at the basis of our conscious. Experience are chemicals called neurotransmitters these chemicals generate electrical signals that form the means by which Ron's communicate with one another and ultimately form neural networks when we stimulate these networks, we experienced the physical sensations emotions that make up our lives. We store these as memories to be recalled when the neural networks that store them are activated once more. For the idea may be a bit glum, but it forms the basis of the idea that the electrical activity in the brain is the detectable trace of our conscious experience by correlation. Then so long as we can detect this electrical activity through the use of technology like the E G, which measures brainwaves we can assume that a person is experiencing consciousness. This is what makes a two thousand eleven study from the Netherlands so troubling the researchers were trying to determine whether decapitation which is a common method of euthanizing lab. Rats is humane. They connected an EEG machine to the brains of rats, decapitated them and recorded the electrical activity in the brain. After the event. The researchers found that for about four seconds after being separated from the body the rats brains continue to generate electrical activity between the thirteen to one hundred Hertz frequency band, which associated with consciousness and cognition aka thinking, this findings just the brain can continue to produce thoughts and experience sensations for at least several seconds following decapitation in rats. Anyway, yet the annals of medicine following the invention of the guillotine have some very interesting scientific observations of human decapitation. Let's look at what happens. When one loses one's head. The circulatory system delivers oxygen and other necessary particles via blood to the brain. So that the brain can carry out it's necessary functions deprived of oxygen or blood, the brains function deteriorates rapidly circulation takes place in a closed system based on a pressurized environment. Blood is pumped in and out of the heart and past the lungs where it's refreshed. Once. More decapitation opens this closed system irrevocably causing a full and massive drop in blood pressure, leaving the brain starved of both blood and oxygen depending on how the head is removed from the body this loss of blood, and ultimately consciousness can take longer in some modes of decapitation than others several blows to the back of the neck with a sword. Or axe can lead to blood loss before the head is fully severed from the body, but the design of the guillotine. Gene, the execution method of choice during the French revolution. Made severing the head cleaner and quicker be blade and wait assembly of the guillotine weighed more than one hundred seventy five pounds. That's eighty kilograms and was dropped from a height of fourteen feet or just over four meters from ground level onto the back of the victim's neck. Moreover, the teams blade was set within a track leading a direct line down to the back of the victim's neck. There's a rumor that the superior execution technology led to at least one case of apparent consciousness after decapitation executions in eighteenth century, France were public affairs and executioners customarily showed the head of the victim to these ambled crowd, then sometimes perform some gesture of disrespect as well. As was the case was Charlotte. Corday a woman executed by guillotine in seventeen ninety three after she SAS needed. The revolutionary leader Jean-Paul Murrah after her head was severed the executioners smacked it's cheeks while he held aloft to the astonishment of the crowd cord as cheeks flushed. And our facial expression changed into quote unequivocal marks of indignation. Most recently in nineteen Eighty-nine. An army veteran reported that following a car accident that he was in with a friend the decapitated head of his friend changed Patiala expressions, quote, I of shock or confusion, then to terror or grief, both king Charles the first and Queen and Belinda are reported to have showed signs of trying to speak following their beheadings by executioner's swords rather than the teen. And when in seventeen ninety five a German researcher by the name of S T summering spoke out against the use of the guillotine. He cited reports of decapitated heads that have ground their teeth and at the face of one decapitated person grist horribly when a physician inspecting the head poked the spinal canal with his finger, but perhaps most famous was the study conducted in nineteen thousand five of the head of an executed criminal over the course of twenty five to thirty seconds of observation the physician recorded managing to get the head to open its is an undeniably focused them on the doctors. Twice calling the executed man's name. Some say that none of this proves consciousness the movement seen in the face could be the result of the voluntary muscles that control the Lipson is merely being in spasm after sort of short circuit or from the relic of electrical activity. This is likely true for the rest of the body. But the head has the distinction of housing the brain, which is the seat of consciousness, the brain receives no drama from clean decapitation, and may therefore continue to function until plus causes unconsciousness and death. We know that chickens often walk around for several seconds after decapitation. The Dutch rat study mentioned earlier suggests the length of perhaps four seconds other studies of small animals have found up to twenty nine seconds. But any amount of time would be horrific take a moment to count off four seconds. While you look around the room, you'll likely find you can take in quite a bit visually and orally during that time. However, we may never fully know if a human remains conscious after the head is lost as author Alan bellows points out further. Scientific observation of human decapitation is unlikely.

They say it sounds like nothing you've heard before our friends here in the office Nolan Chandler they worked with a local band from Athens called hope for golden summer as band of. Been listening to for years to create a soundtrack for the show that is supposedly just gorgeous. I can't wait to hear. And so you should check it out as well. Tune in every Friday for new episodes of happy face a series that doesn't just explore a serial killers mind, but the investigation has daughter needed to walk away whole available Anapa podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. All right. We're back. So another famous monster and slayer combo that this is a combo that we could easily do a whole podcast on you can do multiple podcasts on because a lot of people have written about this. Oh, yeah. I'm talking about the beowulf and Griddle the great romance of Anglo, Saxon literature. Yes. I don't probably don't have to remind everyone about this too much the violent tale in which a a brutish Tomasson of a human disrupts in ancient and terminally endangered creature in the process of its predation. Predation, I should remind everyone that targets only the loudest fittest and warlike human males for the most part the brute ends up tearing the arm off of the creature and then follows a home as it retreats to its layer. And then dies and our hero follows the blood follows the end of the house of pain. Dives down to the deep layer. And they're kills the creatures mother is well. It's a I'm being a little cheeky in my description because it has just accurately describing the story. They will is a jerk. He's well, he is he's kind of the mind kind of, you know, partial, I guess to John Gardner's Grendel who plays up these themes a lot by humanizing the monster while at the same time, retaining its monstrous qualities. But portraying beowulf is just this this holy wrath of character. Yeah. I I I guess it's a it's a modern thing for us to sympathize more with the monster. And why why is it like that? Now, why do we sympathize with the monster more these days? I'm not sure I mean, we'll part of it is that. Yeah. Tales like this kind of speak to all of us and continue to resonate today. But it's it's still a tale. That was speaking to probably more specific audience as opposed to humanity in general, maybe the reason that we're more inclined to sympathize with Grendel and sympathized with monsters. These days is that we more. People now are sort of conditioned to the idea that history as written might not always be fair. You know, that it may be as written to benefit the people who are writing it and make them look good. And this you always kind of wonder when you get a heroic tale of a slaying is it actually a tale of an unfair and undeserved slaughter. Yeah. Or sometimes maybe a monster just doesn't need slaying anymore. I was looking around. And again, there's a tremendous amount of of Lucia about Grendel beowulf tons of people have written about a JR Tolkien wrote about they will find Grendel. I was looking at one particular author, though English professor and also medieval dragon expert Joyce tally lions, I believe as last name and she points out. There's a lot to be said in interpreting Brindle and his mother in some of the earlier interpretations were certainly more seeing them as personification of natural threat. Let's yeah. Very much in keeping with what we discussed in the mar Duke story already there. What's outside the Firelight? They are the wilderness embody the wilderness there the dark, they are perhaps more. Specifically, the North Sea is a bog the Marsh long winter nights?.

What I see down with some of my favorite people to find out how they thrive in all parts of their lives have had great conversations with everyone from Jennifer Aniston and Malcolm Gadweil to Katy Perry Neil degrasse Tyson and have learned an amazing number of techniques to be at our best in our modern world search and follow the thrive. Global podcast. Iheartradio are subscribe wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome to brain stuff from how stuff works. Hey, brain stuff on more involved bomb. And I've got a classic episode for you today from our former host Christian Sager. He's talking about how Jabu works. He's talking about how deja-vu works. Eight brain stuff. It's Christian Sager here. Deja vu is French for the term already seen in the term was coined by a scientist named a meal bureau rock in eighteen seventy six in what it refers to is the feeling that you've experienced something before. There's actually a lot of different terms that can be used to specify this type of experience from delta goat, which means already tasted to deja Sean Tae which means already sung. Now, these episodes of dejavu they usually last ten to thirty seconds long about two thirds of people say they've experienced it in rates seem to be higher in people who are fifteen to twenty five years old. Have higher incomes, travel more are more educated and more open minded are politically liberal and have psychiatric disorders like anxiety, depression, dissociate disorders and schizophrenia. Fun. Science doesn't know exactly what causes deja-vu and there are over forty theories about it. That's a lot researchers don't even agree on how to categorize it. But broadly we can talk about two types today. We have associative deja-vu in which stimuli trigger and associated memory and biological deja vu in which people with brain dysfunction experienced strong deja vu. So an example of this lots of people with temporal lobe. Epilepsy report having deja vu right before seizures in some of them deja vu can even be triggered with electrical stimulation to the brain. Some people with conditions like anxiety and dementia, have reported chronic deja vu in which the feeling is so common and persistent that it disrupts their daily life. And there is a case study of a healthy guy who started taking dopamine increasing drugs to fight the flu immediately getting. A bunch of vu and it stopped when he stopped the drugs. Weird researchers think structures in the medial temporal lobe, which is located behind the top part of your ears toward the middle of your brain are involved because it's involved in our sensory perception in the establishment of our memories, the hip campus in the rhino cortex, help us consciously form and recall memories. They might save on brain processing power in time by sorting out familiar things from novel things. So they denote I dunno energy to the novel things. The para Campbell gyrus, though that helps us determine what's familiar and what's not. And it doesn't retrieve memories to do. So while the amid LA helps process emotional reactions. So here's some popular theories for what is going on with deja vu are I is called divided attention theory. You actually have seen. The oddly familiar thing before you just weren't paying enough attention the first time around to record a full memory of it. This was proposed by guy named Dr Alan Brown who tested. Subliminal familiarity with briefly seen images are next theory is called hologram theory. Cool, right? Okay. So this is a thing you maybe don't know about holograms it's that you can cut them up, and each piece will display the full image just at a lower resolution, Dutch psychiatrist, Herman snow proposed that maybe deja vu happens. When some fragment of a memory may be a familiar smell or an object triggers the feeling of remembering a full scene, then we have dual processing theory. The temporal lobe sort of works on incoming information, but twice once upon receipt. And again after a quick shunt through the right hemisphere, maybe sometimes the temporal lobe mislabels data from that second stream accidentally identify. Buying it as something old rather than something new, giving you a feeling of familiarity. Now, this one was proposed by Robert Ephron in nineteen sixty three. And we have one last theory called leaky processing theory. The sound stained dress may be dirty, our brain store current input in short term memory and then transfer the important stuff. Or you know, like bagel bites, jingles some kind of song to your long term memory. Maybe sometimes a bit of information leaks or jumps or or miss routes directly from short to long term storage. And that is what creates a feeling of familiarity. Today's episode was written by me and produced by Tyler claim for more on this and lots of other memorable topics visit our home planet.

As a young girl, I was eleven years old and my parents had just divorced and my dad was living with his girlfriend and Portland, Oregon. And this was my first summer vacation where I stayed at a different home, the my, my childhood home and the moment I walked in that house, I felt like I wasn't alone that there was energy there that there were spirits there that I was being walked in every room in every room. He had purchased bunk beds for my sister and I and my sister picked the bottom bunk. And I picked the top bunk. And it was my first night in this new house. I fall asleep a little bit, but then I'm awakened by being touched. And then my hair is touched. A heavy touch with a light touch. So I leave and go down the little stairs of the bunk bed. And I rush over and I'm gonna go run into my dad's room that I froze. I felt that. Whatever was touching me was over there too. I wasn't going to be safe in my dad's room and I didn't feel safe with my dad. And so I laid on the in the hallway floor with the light on curled up in a ball, hoping that the night would just go away fast. And in the morning, my dad stopped over me and he said, why did you fall asleep in the hallway? And I said, I was being touched dad. Something was touching me. And he said, oh, don't pay any attention to them. They bother me all the time at night. Don't pay them any mind. Mosa. Who is your dad? What is he known as. My father is Keith hunter, Jespersen. He's known as the happy face, serial killer. Girl, don't. Tell me, why did he. Live in the. The. Live is. Don't have a son. Shiva. Oh. My name is Lauren bright Pacheco. I'm a television producer, and I've worked with Melissa Jespersen more for about four years. We work on crime stories together and we travel a lot. And during our downtime, we've had the chance to really get to know one another and she shared a lot with me about her past, especially her childhood. Halted home ways. Amazing. My parents had three children together the oldest a year later. My brother was born and then two years after my brother and my sister Carey was born and my mom was a stay home. Mom, am I father was a long haul truck driver. I felt loved a felt provided for felt adored, but I actually felt like I was a superstar. How big are you. Three. Dance. We lived in the country. And when I would hear the semi truck pull up to hear the the wills on the gravel and you just knew you, you can easily recognize that sound. The window panes would actually shake because of the size in the rumble of his engine. So we would just bolt my brother, my sister, and I would actually race to get my dad to see who could get into his pockets. I because in his pockets were tons of change in and tokens and things from his trips. And so it was like a competition who could get who could get dad's change, and and that was our first encounter with him, and you pick us up and he would throw us in the air and play with us and be excited to see us. He would be just as excited to see us as we were excited to see him. Everybody thinks their, you know, their dad is the center of the universe, but your dad, how did you feel being placed on his shoulders. I love the view that I see so much more and I felt that I was absolutely safe and that anything was possible. And that I do whatever I wanted to do that was safe in the arms with my dad.
