Abstract:

My Brilliant Brain is a riveting, three-hour series that examines three groups of genius to answer questions about human intelligence. Do differences in gender, brain size and brain hemisphere dominance enable individuals to excel far beyond their peers? Or, can education and environment help fuel intelligence and enable anyone to become a prodigy, if given the opportunity? Using computer generated images, brain scans and expert testimony, My Brilliant Brain unlocks some of the brain's biggest mysteries. Episodes include: Born Genius, Accidental Genius, Make Me a Genius and My Musical Brain. My Musical Brain: My Musical Brain combines the cutting-edge experiments of top neuroscientists and the experiences of top musicians such as Sting, Michael Buble, Feist and Wyclef Jean to reveal why music is so important in our lives. It explores our collective passion for music and illuminates how the brain uses music to create human experience.
