What if We Could Look Inside Human Brains?

As a follow-up to my last post about how the brain works here, this is a video from TedEd about looking inside the human brain as an answer to some question we might have.

The brain is what makes us function, yet we understand so little about how it works. We are learning more about the brain by using new technology to monitor epilepsy patients during surgery. Moran Cerf explains the process doctors use to explore the brain further.

BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks

Can we make an analogy between the human brain and the Internet?

BRAIN POWER: From Neurons to Networks is a 10-minute film and accompanying TED Book from award-winning Director Tiffany Shlain and her team at The Moxie Institute. Based on new research on how to best nurture children’s brains from Harvard University’s Center on the Developing Child and University of Washington’s I-LABS, the film explores the parallels between a child’s brain development and the development of the global brain of Internet, offering insights into the best ways to shape both. Made through a new crowd-sourcing creativity process the Moxie team calls “Cloud Filmmaking,” Brain Power was created by putting into action the very ideas that the film is exploring: the connections between neurons, networks, and people around the world.
