A Head-Shrinker Studies The Zombie Brain

From Science Friday:
"Psychiatrist Steven Schlozman recently expanded his practice from humans to the inhuman. Poring over his library of classic zombie films, he came up with neurobiological explanations for the behavior of the undead, such as lack of a frontal lobe and an overactive amygdala."

Here's a link to the podcast.. It's quite funny.

I've not been able to track down the original paper. Anybody have a link?
