The Perceiving Brain by Eric Kandel

The Perceiving Brain

by Eric Kandel


Title Details

Running Time
55 Min.
In this second episode of the Charlie Rose Brain Series, the brain expert roundtable looks at the sense of sight and visual perception. They show how the brain processes visual information and how it is different than a camera. Brain scientists have determined precise locations where the brain processes facial recognition, landscapes & places, and other objects, and we are shown how brain damage can impair certain types of vision. The panel also looks at the plasticity of sight and how blind people who've been given treatments to restore their vision can learn to see in the same way the developing brain does. It's a good introduction to the key human sensation of sight.
