Is there any more to mind than the brain? Does experience shape the way our brain develops? When we learn something new is our brain physically altered? In four presentations, Dr. Thomas M. Jessell and Dr. Eric R. Kandel help us puzzle out how the brain is organized, how it develops, how it controls behavior, and how it stores memory.
This DVD set includes detailed chapter search by scientific topic; direct access to animations; English subtitles; interviews with the speakers; special features on synaptic function and animal locomotion; a discussion about neurobiology and mental illness; and a story on Alzheimer mice from NOVA scienceNOW.
