“Don’t kiss a zombie” is among the practical information and deadpan advice provided in this hilarious talk on Zombie Neuroscience by Shane O’Mara at TEDxDublin.

A fun lecture utilizing scientific terminology to describe zombie physiology and behaviour.

He ends by describing a couple of real psychiatric disorders: the rare Cotard and Capgras delusions.
