Dr. Matthew Goldenberg joins us to talk about why we love sports in general, but football in particular.
Back in August an opinion piece caught our eyes. The title of the piece was “Scientist seeks answers: Why do we love football?”
Matthew Goldenberg, M.D., is a psychiatrist who has been on the faculty at Yale and the staff of Yale-New Haven Hospital since 2013. Prior to arriving at Yale, he was a faculty member at Uniformed Services University (USUHS) and Dartmouth Medical School.
