Description

Explore how a scientist and artist discovered how our brains transmit signals throughout the body, and laid the foundation for modern neuroscience.

--

In the 1860s, scientists believed they were on the verge of uncovering the brains biggest secret: how the brains signals travel through the body. They believed these impulses travelled uninterrupted along a massive web of tissue. But soon, a young artist would cut down this hypothesis, and sketch a bold new vision of how our brains work. Melanie E. Peffer details the discoveries of Golgi and Cajal.

Lesson by Melanie E. Peffer, directed by Artrake Studio.
