Neuroscience: Understanding The Brain


Availability information for this program

In the 21st century neuroscience is drawing the best and brightest from computer science, medicine, engineering, psychology, biology, genetics and ethics, all in the service of studying the brain. The result is a reshaping of everything we know about lifelong development, learning, memory, health and disease. Neuroscience is the last and greatest frontier challenging humanity's understanding of the world. Featuring in-depth interviews and demonstrations with top neuroscientists from institutions including, MIT, Harvard, John Hopkins, and Washington University, this new five-part plus series from Ambrose Video provides the foundation for understanding what is being called "the century of the brain."
