Making your mind : molecules, motion and memory.
- Jessell, Thomas M.
About this work
Two leading neuroscientists discuss our current understanding of memory and brain development. Disc one contains: Features: controlling animal locomotion; electrical activity of neurons; visualising learning; spatial-learning maze. Animations: molecular mechanism of synaptic function; development of the human embryonic brain; signal molecules trigger transcription factors; repellent ephrin signals guide limb innervations; molecular activity in Aplysia memory; molecular basis of mouse memory. Lectures: Mapping Memory in the Brain, Building Brains the Molecular Logic of Neural Circuits; Plan of Action How the Spinal Cord Controls Movement; Memories are Made of This. Video clips: Cokve Wearing, a man withut a memory; a patient with conduction aphasia; growth cones in action; Charles Freed, a man without proprioception; muscle activity during walking and hopping; Ian Waterman, Visual compensation for proprioception loss; using spatial memory to negotiate an obstacle; Aplysia's gill-withdrawal reflex and sensitisation; mice demonstrate spatial memory in a maze. Disc two contains: a discussion on neurobiology and mental illness. Interviews with Thomas M. Jessell, Eric R. Kandel, Adam hantman, Laskaro Zagoraiou, Priya Rajasethupathy and Tessa Hirshchfeld-Stoler.
