Summary:   A COUPLE OF WEEKS AGO I ASKED IF ANYBODY KNEW OF A GOOD UP-TO-DATE VIDEO
ABOUT THE BRAIN, FOR USE IN A SENIOR LEVEL COGNITIVE SCIENCE COURSE.
THANKS TO YOKO OKITA, GREGORY WARD, AND COLLEAGUES MIMI BENTLEY AND JULIA
FALK FOR RESPONDING. UNFORTUNATELY EXACTLY WHAT I WAS LOOKING FOR, WHICH
WAS SOMETHING FAIRLY HIGH-LEVEL, WITH TECHNICAL DETAILS ABOUT THE
FUNCTIONING OF THE BRAIN ILLUSTRATED, DOESN'T SEEM TO EXIST, BUT HERE ARE
SOME POSSIBILITIES:

(1) SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN FRONTIERS FILM CALLED 'PIECES OF MIND' (JAN.
19997). NARRATED BY ALAN ALDA, WHO ALSO APPEARS A LOT. 10 MINUTE SEGMENTS
ON SPLIT BRAIN PATIENTS, MEMORY, ETC.

(2) THE MIND SERIES (1988) HAS 9 HOUR SHOWS ON E.G. LANGUAGE, THINKING, ETC.

(3) THE BRAIN SERIES (1984?) HAS A NUMBER OF HOUR SHOWS ON LEARNING &
MEMORY, LATERALIZATION, ETC.

(4) THE DISCOVERY CHANNEL HAD A 2 HOUR SERIES 2 YEARS AGO ABOUT THE BRAIN.
>FROM THEIR WEB SITE (WWW.DISCOVERY.COM) I LEARNED THE FOLLOWING:
THE BRAIN: OUR UNIVERSE WITHIN IS AVAILABLE ON HOME VIDEO BY CALLING
