Three Lesions, Three Lives: Brain Lesions That Changed Science

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Published 8 years ago

The brain is a complex organ - we still don't know how it all works! A lot of what we do know actually comes from brain damage survivors. In this video, we explore three individuals who experienced traumatic brain injuries. Through unfortunate circumstances, they revealed amazing things about localization in the brain and how different parts of your brain serve different functions. So find out more and help continue on their legacy.

Also, keep an eye out for upcoming videos that will be going over the basics of neuroscience starting the summer of 2015. We are excited to expand the neuroscience field on YouTube!

For whatever reason, the realization that we are our brains, and they are so poorly protected, made me cry. Weep is a more accurate term.
