Episode Summary

EDIT
The Brain is a voyage of discovery into the evolutionary history of our last biological frontier. From early civilizations' attempts at neurosurgery to today's robotic laser surgery, revolutionary new techniques are finally unlocking the story of the brain. As a result we've learned more in the last 5 years than in the past 100. Using simple analogies, real examples, and state of the art CGI this series will explain how the brain grows, show why it's so delicate and so resilient, and unravel the mystery of consciousness. We'll see life through the eyes of living case studies, from newborns to college football stars. And we'll travel inside the minds of people in extreme situations: How does a soldier make decisions under fire? What makes us good or evil? And why do autistic people like the "Rain Man" display such breathtaking skills?moreless
