Storyline

Brain Story will examine how the brain controls every aspect of our being from movement to the emotions. It also explores "our ability to learn and adapt" though fossil records have shown that the human brain has not changed significantly for thousands of years. Scientists continue to struggle with questions such as is the mind separate from the brain or are all our experiences mere chemical reactions in the brain.

A comprehensive mini series about the human brain
25 July 2007 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

The story detailed in the 6 one hour episodes is showing us how the brain functions, mainly through cases of brain damaged people that throw insight into what specific areas do. Some interesting theories and experiments are also shown in the film.

The narrator is prof. Susan Greenfield, who is using the most British English a Baroness with the Order of the British Empire can muster. That can get a bit annoying some times, but not so that it damages the show. A professor of Synaptic Pharmacology at Lincoln College, she is clearly interested and fascinated by the human brain, however, she does tend to lecture, presenting some debatable things as facts, rather than theories, as any professor does eventually, which does damage a little the overall narrative.

Bottom line: a good show to watch. It is fairly easy to understand, without being dumbed down, even if the usual dramatic music and visual effects do show their ugly head a bit too often. Also be warned that the film does show some live operation scenes, mainly in the 6th part.
