Brainwave: Mind Over Matter presents Walt "Clyde" Frazier in discussion with NYU neuroscientist Paul Glimcher. While the two are both highly accomplished in their field, the blend of basketball greatness to neuroscience doesn't come together often. Brainwave's latest series examines the role of the brain in facing challenges. The pair will be analyzing the role the brain plays in helping overcome adversity, survive tests and achieving greatness. A two time world champion with the New York Knicks, Frazier is an interesting and engaging counterpart to the NYU professor on discussing what it takes to be a champion.
