The brain is the most complex and baffling organ in our body. It controls almost every human action, and yet we're just beginning to understand how it works and therefore what we can do to keep it healthy. In this program we learn about the brain, and that we are on the threshold of major therapeutic advances in all of the serious brain diseases. We meet Mary Bird, a stroke victim who chose to take t-PA, a drug that dissolves blood clots, to help her avoid having another stroke. Next, Dr. Harvey Sanders, Dr. Britt Bright and Mary-Sue Fairbarn, a lung researcher, address the issue of testing new medications by using placebos. Lastly, we learn that there are immediate steps we can take to have healthy brains, from practicing mental "gymnastics" to taking safe and natural antioxidants such as Ginko. 04/10DE/CC Closed-Captioned SCA 30 min.
