PBS International takes a look at Your Brain with neuroscientist Dr Heather Berlin

PBS International in the US will shop two-part documentary series Your Brain, which looks at the latest research into the human brain, uncovering new insights into how it processes the world and makes us who we are.

Dr Heather Berlin

The series, hosted by neuroscientist Dr Heather Berlin PhD, launched this week on PBS in the US and is also available to stream on YouTube.

The programme sees Berlin, a neuroscientist, clinical psychologist and associate clinical professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, explore the neural basis of impulsive and compulsive disorders with the aim of developing novel treatments. She is also trying to unravel the basis of consciousness and creativity.

The first episode, Your Brain: Perception Deception, is a Nova Production by Little Bay Pictures for GBH, a division of PBS, while the second episode, Your Brain: Who’s In Control?, is a Nova Production by Structure Films for GBH.

Funding for the episodes was provided by the Alfred P Sloan Foundation, the Nova Science Trust, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and PBS viewers. Additional funding was provided by the George D Smith Fund.

Nova co-executive producer Julia Cort said: “Each episode of this series takes viewers on an entertaining journey through cutting-edge research in neuroscience and real-life stories full of surprising twists and turns – shedding light on big questions that go to the very heart of who we are.”
