Displaying Dead and Different Bodies: Spectacle/Sideshow/Education?

Loading...
Paul Root Wolpe, Ph.D. (Senior Fellow, Center for Bioethics and Associate Professor, Departments of Psychiatry, Medical Ethics, and Sociology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) discussed the ways in which humans think of and view "bodies." Dr. Wolpe illustrated with what he termed the "misshapen body" (such as the specimens on display at the Mütter Museum), the "reconstructed body" (such as cloned animals and the Body Worlds exhibitions of plastinated human bodies) and the "deconstructed body" (such as gender changing surgeries). Melanie A. McCollum, Ph.D. (Associate Professor of Medical Education, Department of Cell Biology, and Course Director, Gross and Developmental Anatomy, University of Virginia) talked about the importance of bodies for learning and the [...]

Computer Simulations

Philosopher John Searle points out the difference between computer simulations--be they of the brain or a weather event or an explosion--and the real thing. According to Professor Searle, however closely the simulation comes to approximating the appearance of the original, in the end what a computer simulation does is provide a picture of something, rather than an actual duplicate.

Making Rounds

We spend a trillion dollars a year on high-tech tests, and yet, almost 20% of patients are misdiagnosed. This documentary reintroduces the oldest diagnostic method - listening to the patient - by following two leading cardiologists, Dr. Valentin Fuster and Dr. Herschel Sklaroff, over a one-month period, as they care for critically-ill heart patients in the Cardiac Care Unit at Mount Sinai Hospital. We accompany Fuster and Sklaroff as they teach future doctors the traditional art and science of a thorough bedside physical exam. "A great many diseases may be diagnosed," they tell us, "just by looking at a patient's hand".

Stroke and Depression

Dr. Andrew Leuchter, Director of Adult Psychiatry at UCLA, talks about research that helps identify which patients are at highest risk for depression after a stroke. Dr. Leuchter explains that, ". . . It appears that strokes in the frontal portions of the brain, particularly in the left frontal portion, affecting some of the deeper structures in the left frontal lobe, put a patient at highest risk for having a depressive episode after a stroke."

Lung Health: The Science Squad

A recent European report on lung health found that Ireland has the third highest death rate from lung disease in Europe. Each year, there are as many deaths in Ireland due to respiratory disease as there are from heart disease, yet it does not seem to be prioritized. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD is a collection of lung diseases, the most common being chronic bronchitis and emphysema. It is often seen as a smoker’s disease; something people are bringing on themselves, but that is not the full story. The fact is lung disease can affect anyone regardless of age, health status and walk of life. We meet the RCSI researchers who have discovered that the high prevalence of COPD in this country could be linked to a genetic lung condition affecting 1 in 24 Irish people, 90% o [...]

Regulating Our Emotions

Psychologist and author Paul Ekman talks about the difficulty of trying to control or regulate one's emotions. "For some people, it'll be easier to achieve," Dr. Ekman says, "because nature gave them more of a gap between impulse and action. It's a longer, gradual onset time."

Mind and the Body, the

Philosopher John Searle explains that when the body (including, of course, the brain) dies, the mind and the self die at the same time. He rejects the notion that there is something else, what some would call the soul, that endures despite the death of the body.
