As you read these words, your brain is taking in all kinds of sights and sounds, and zeroing in on a few. It is recalling what you have learned about the forms of letters, the meanings of words, and what information you hope to find on this website.
Your brain is making decisions and forming new memories. All the while, it is helping you stay alert and steadily breathe. How does the brain do it all? We are only beginning to understand the inside story of this remarkable organ.
Today, advances in biochemistry and new technologies that allow us to watch the brain in action are revealing more than ever before.
Brain: The Inside Story explores the way the human brain works, specifically as it relates to senses (“Your Sensing Brain”), emotions (“Your Emotional Brain”), thinking (“Your Thinking Brain”), how the brain ages (“Your Changing Brain”), and how technological advances may change our brains in the future (“Your 21st Century Brain”).
