Ev’s daughter Jen (Dr. Jennifer Kornelsen) was on the CBC’s Quirks & Quarks program today, as part of this year’s annual Quirks Question Roadshow, recorded at the Prairie Theatre Exchange in downtown Winnipeg. (Over its lifetime, Quirks & Quarks has won more than 70 national and international awards for science journalism—it is consistently rated the most enjoyed program by CBC Radio listeners).
Jen is a professor of physiology in the Department of Psychology at the University of Winnipeg. The question she addressed (with aplomb)? “Why is it that when I have an itch on my back and I ask someone to scratch it they have to chase the itch around until they finally chase it right off?”
