On this week's show, Dr Shane and Dr Chromo find some science in amongst the grand final aftermath, including science fiction's connection with fact and use of mediums in crime solving, the effects of climate change on earthquakes, volcanos and other tectonic activity, and a book review of The Promise of Sleep. Our guests this week are both from the Murdoch Childrens Research Institute. Anna Price talks to us about infant sleep behaviour and the research into the long term health effects of some new sleep techniques and the links between a baby's sleep patterns and the health of the parents. Emily Ridgewell talks to us about her research into cerebral palsy and the use of ankle braces to treat some of the symptoms of the condition.For more information, please visit us at http://einsteinagogo.net.
