[Not, technically, video – it’s a single photo, presumably of the researcher but that’s not clear, over an audio track of a phone interview. At least it’s edited.]
title The Female Brain
description Interview with Dr. Louann Brizendine, researcher and author of the hot new book, The Female Brain, on neuroanatomically-based sex differences, female-centred neuropsychiatry, and more.
featuring Louann Brizendine
NOTE: Dr. Brizendine makes the claim that females have 11% more mirror neurons and that’s why women are more emotionally empathic. Hmm.

The above portrait of Harvey Cushing by John Singer Sargent was reproduced on a 1988 American postage stamp.
description “Harvey Cushing’s 2000th Verified Brain Tumor Operation filmed on April 15, 1931 The procedure was photographed and edited by Walter W. Boyd, MD, and Richard U. Light, MD, and narrated by Dr. Light. It begins with Gilbert Horrax preparing the patient and continues through the conclusion of the surgery and a follow-up visit to the patient. As one of Dr. Cushing’s last residents, Dr. Light was well qualified to tell this story and includes vignettes about Mildred Codding, Louise Eisenhardt, and ‘Adolph.'”

title Brain-Machine Interfaces
description “Brain-machine interfaces promise to aid paralyzed patients by re-routing movement-related signals around damaged parts of the nervous system. A new study in Nature demonstrates a human with spinal injury manipulating a screen cursor and robotic devices by thought alone. Implanted electrodes in his motor cortex recorded neural activity, and translated it into movement commands. A second study, in monkeys, shows that brain-machine interfaces can operate at high speed, greatly increasing their clinical potential. This Nature Web Focus includes exclusive interviews and video footage of experiments, alongside papers that paved the way for these recent advances.”
