Prof John O'Connor, head of teaching in UCD SBBS is my guest this week. He chats to me about his career in electrophysiology and his interests into how the immune system affects memory in a region of the brain called the hippocampus. We also discuss his latest work on stroke and preconditioning tissues for hypoxic insult.

John also fondly recalls his time working as a lighthouse keeper with his dad to earn money during college and the 'real buzz' you get in research when something works.
