Brain Story - All in the Mind

One of the greatest and most elusive mysteries to be solved is not whether but how the physical world of neurons and the brain gives rise to subjective experience and its mental, emotional and phenomenological richness.

In this documentary series, Professor and neuroscientist Susan Greenfield sets out to explain how this three-pound squishy organ is responsible not only for motor action and perception but for subjective experience, ranging from simple information processing to artistic creativity and even religious 'out-of-body' experiences.

Throughout, Professor Greenfield looks at some rather unique individuals whose interesting (and sometimes lamentable) brain conditions shed some fascinating light on the mysteries hidden inside the seemingly impenetrable 'normal' brain.
