Abstract:

Are the brain and the mind one and the same? How big a role does environment play in cognitive development? Does consciousness have a physical location? This program explores these and other fundamental questions concerning the evolution and function of the human brain. Computer graphics and commentary from an array of leading international neuroscientists provide insights into the human brain's development and the nature/nurture debate. The program also examines how the study of syndromes and mental illness has furthered the understanding of the brain, particularly the creation of various brain maps, including Penfield's Motor Homunculus.
