Abstract:

Fifth in a five-part series that presents recent research on the brain. This episode presents recent studies which indicate that the normal aging process leaves most mental functions intact, that we do not lose brain cells as we age, and that the aging brain is far more resilient than previously believed. Shows U.S. poet laureate Stanley Kunitz at age 95, still writing poems and reading to a live audience. At the University of Alabama at Birmingham, neuroscientist Edward Taub has developed an innovative form of therapy that helps stroke patients overcome years of paralysis by reviving the damaged circuits in their brains. Scientists have discovered that elderly brains continue producing new neurons. At Harvard Medical School, neurologist Jeffrey Macklis is trying to find out whether it is possible to use the new neurons to replace those killed by disorders like Parkinson's Disease.
