The Multidimensional Mind

In April, President Obama called for the BRAIN (Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies) Initiative, a research effort aimed at revealing some of the mysteries of the human brain.

The inner functioning of the brain is something we are only just beginning to understand and with each new revelation comes the immense complexity of the brain’s sophistication.

The Multidimensional Mind series, from UCSF Osher Mini Medical School, is a compilation of videos presenting the cutting edge developments in brain science and discoveries.

In Genes and the Brain: From Worms to People”, see how Dr. Aimee Kao, Dr. Dena Dubal and Jennifer Yokoyama study the way genes affect the brain through simple worms.

In Communicating Brains: From Autism and Dyslexia to Progressive Aphasia, Elysa Marco, Nina Dronkers and Maya Henry study disorders, such as autism, dyslexia, and aphasia to better understand the processes a healthy brain uses to communicate. Each disorder affects the brain differently revealing a different way the brain processes can be disrupted, thus divulging more about those communicative functions.
