Symphony of Science: Ode to the Brain!


(Youtube Direktbrain, via SOS)

Netter neuer Clip von Symphony of Science, diesmal gehts um Neurowissenschaften und das Gehirn: „'Ode to the Brain' is the ninth episode in the Symphony of Science music video series. Through the powerful words of scientists Carl Sagan, Robert Winston, Vilayanur Ramachandran, Jill Bolte Taylor, Bill Nye, and Oliver Sacks, it covers different aspects the brain including its evolution, neuron networks, folding, and more. The material sampled for this video comes from Carl Sagan's Cosmos, Jill Bolte Taylor's TED Talk, Vilayanur Ramachandran's TED Talk, Bill Nye's Brain episode, BBC's 'The Human Body', Oliver Sachs' TED Talk, Discovery Channel's 'Human Body: Pushing the Limits', and more.“

Nach dem Klick noch zwei der hier verwendeten TED Talks von Vilayanur Ramachandran („A journey to the center of your mind“), der erklärt, was Hirnverletzungen bewirken, und Jill Bolte („Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke of insight“), die ihren eigenen Schlaganfall beschreibt. Der Talk von Bolte wird gegen Ende leider arg spirituell und sie wirkt ein bisschen, wie eine Esoterikerin, dafür aber fuchtelt sie mit einem echten Gehirn auf die Bühne rum.

Vilayanur Ramachandran - A journey to the center of your mind

Vilayanur Ramachandran tells us what brain damage can reveal about the connection between celebral tissue and the mind, using three startling delusions as examples.

Jill Bolte Taylor's stroke of insight

Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions -- motion, speech, self-awareness -- shut down one by one. An astonishing story.
