There is nothing like it in the universe - the human brain. It is a biological structure that has reshaped the planet. It is faster than any man-made computer, and it has become aware of itself. The human nervous system starts with the brain, extends down to the spinal cord, and connects to every part of the body through a vast network of fibers known as the peripheral nervous system. At the heart of this system is the neuron, a specialized cell that carries electrical impulses along neural pathways. Join world renowned surgeon Dr. Mark Reisman as he reveals the complex anatomy of the human brain and guides you through the miraculous functioning of the human nervous system.

Shot in HD, using the latest in 3-D graphics, medical imaging and cadaver specimens, see the human body's nervous system revealed in ways never seen before.
