WOW!! This is the best video I have ever seen about how the brain works!!!

This is by far the best (animated) video I have ever seen on how the brain functions and if you really want to understand where the 'intersection between technology and liberal arts' resides, this is it @ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFs9W...layer_embedded

In this new RSAnimate, renowned psychiatrist and writer Iain McGilchrist explains how our 'divided brain' has profoundly altered human behaviour, culture and society. Taken from a lecture given by Iain McGilchrist as part of the RSA's free public events program.

It's one of those videos you need to see a couple of times to truly grasp all the info provided.

Thanks for mentioning this. It is a very nice and up to date explanation of how neuroscience understands brain function. Quite a few old chestnuts I had believed earnestly were dismissed in this engaging presentation!
