Abstract:

First program in a documentary series on the study of the brain and its workings. Among the topics covered in this program are the parts of the brain and their functions, the technology used to study brain activity, and some examples of brain disease or malfunction (epilepsy, Huntington's disease, hydrocephaly) and the methods used to research and treat them. Choreographer Agnes de Mille discusses the stroke she suffered in 1975. Her slow but determined recovery, described by herself and her neurologist Dr. Fred Plum, culminates in her return to the dance studio, where she is seen rehearsing young dancers in her choreography.
