Lecture 1: Understanding Acquired Brain Injury
This lecture focuses on brain anatomy and how the functions of the brain are organised. Specific cognitive and behavioural changes following ABI will be explained. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of each of the lobes of the cerebral hemispheres and the importance of understanding the role of the…
Discovering the Human Brain - New Pathways to Neuroscience
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
Using the resources of the UCLA Brain Mapping Center, this film illustrates the development of neuroscience from its classical reliance on information from brain injuries and autopsies through the new insights discovered with electronic microscopes, EEG equipment, PET scans and MRI machines. Examples of current research that utilize these tools…
Human Brain Development - Nature and Nurture
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
The fascinating interplay of genetic predispositions and experience in the development of the brain after birth is demonstrated in this film produced at the Brain Development Laboratory at the University of Oregon. Three profiles of plasticity are depicted with compelling film sequences of behavioral, MRI and EEG research into the…
The Emotional Brain - An Introduction to Affective Neuroscience
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
Emotions color our everyday individual existence and shape all aspects of our interpersonal and intellectual experiences. In this film, animations and fMRI images introduce students to what we now know about the sub-cortical emotional circuits in the brain and chemical processes that produce our emotional responses and contribute to our…

Lecture 3: Recovery Following Brain Injury
The third lecture of the series discusses recovery following brain injury. Neuroplasticity is explained and the importance of embedding the principles of neuroplasticity into slow stream rehabilitation programs is emphasised. Although recovery may never be complete, this lecture emphasises the importance of positive support to promote learning and in improving…
Brain Fitness
PBS
The Brain Fitness Program is based on the brain's ability to change and adapt, even rewire itself. In the past two years, a team of scientists has developed computer-based stimulus sets that drive beneficial chemical, physical and functional changes in the brain. Dr. Michael Merzenich of the University of California…

This ambitious project blends science with innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories, and addresses some big questions. By understanding the human brain,…
Motor Neurone Disease
MND (Motor Neurone Disease or Motor Neuron Disease) or ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) is a condition which relentlessly destroys the nerves that control the muscles that enable us to move, speak, breathe and swallow while leaving the intellect and senses generally unaffected.This Speaking From Experience video offers offer first-hand accounts…
Making Sense of Sensory Information
Part of the Series: Neuroscience
For thousands of years, humans have asked if we perceive the world accurately through our senses. Because seeing is so important for our functioning in the world, efforts to understand how perceptions are generated have most often focused on vision. Based on current research in cognitive neuroscience, this film explores…
