The Secret Life of the Brain

As someone who really enjoyed Brain Rules, I can’t believe I missed the PBS mini-series, The Secret Life of the Brain.

Here is the series description:

THE SECRET LIFE OF THE BRAIN, a David Grubin Production, reveals the fascinating processes involved in brain development across a lifetime. The five-part series informs viewers of exciting new information in the brain sciences, introduces the foremost researchers in the field, and utilizes dynamic visual imagery and compelling human stories to help a general audience understand otherwise difficult scientific concepts.

There are some terrific interactive features online including the three-dimensional model of the brain, mind illusions, and a library of different types of brain scans.

So, if you are looking for some cool interactive media to supplement your understanding of the brain be sure to check out The Secret Life of the Brain. Oh, don’t forget about all the exemplary media on the Brain Rules website.

By the way if you are a Discovery Education streaming subscriber you may have this series in your media library. It is part of the PBS media pack.
