Synopsis by Alice Day
The complex nature of the human brain has been a challenge for scientists who research its functions. With advanced techniques of brain imaging, they have been able to learn more, but much of the brain remains a mystery, even to those who specialize in probing its complicated mechanisms. The delicate organ is encased in bone, but it is still prone to severe injury, mental illness, and other problems. Perspective: Mind Games (Brain Functions) looks at new approaches that are available to medical personnel who treat patients with disorders related to brain function.
