The Decade of the Brain [electronic resource]

Summary
By far the biggest discovery that's been made about our brains in the last ten years is just how changeable they really are. Scientists used to think the brain stayed much the same once it reached adult size at age 12, but this video clip takes a look at the transformative technology of the MRI and all the things it's taught us about the plasticity and function of the brain over the last decade.
