"THE BRAIN" ON PBS TV


Posted by June in Toronto (June Floyd,June in Toronto), Feb 02,2002,18:30   Archive
I've taped 4 parts of this series (2 more to go) and have watched the parts on the baby's brain, the child's brain and now part of the teenage brain (its slow going with beb). Has anybody else been watching it?

Its very interesting - an infant's neurons on one side weren't connected at birth (the infant had a cataract) and was connected surgically. In adults the neurons woiuld already be connected and hence a new lens would be placed in the eye - but with the baby the neurons had to be connected, a contact lens was used, and the good eye taped for a year or so to make sure the surgically connected eye would `do its stuff'. It also talked about premature babies and how they seem to do better when placed in a quiet atmosphere at birth (as close to the mother's womb as possible).

In the child's brain it talked about dyslexia and seizures and how they test and help with those.

In the teenage brain, so far, it talks about schizophrenia and drug use.

I am hoping, when it gets to the adult brain, that it might mention Dystonia or other malfunctions. More later if anybody is interested.

Hi June,

I too have been watching the PBS series. It really is fascinating isn't it? When you begin to see just how amazingly complex our brains are I think it helps to understand why the doctors and scientists can't just hand us the answers we so desperately want!

It always amazes me when I read the inserts on my prescriptions. Most of the drugs that I'm taking contain statements that basically say it is not understood how the drug benefits the patient but that it is believed to act on one area of the brain or other. Kinda scary huh? Still, things have improved. Imagine how people like us (with dystonia) might have been treated back in the middle ages!

Have a great day!

I, too, have seen paintings of people with dystonia from around the same time period - they wre brought to my attention by our Dystonia support group. I have never seen beb portayed - that would be interesting.

did he really? i didn't know that. i read an entire book on Van Gogh , i guess i didn't notice. His early drawings and pen and inks tho, are exquisite and i don't think many people have seen them.
i can't find the Matissian portrait in my matisse book, so maybe i saw that at a museum also.

The copies of the paintings I saw (2) were of people with generalized dystonia I would think - very obvious to even me. I should try and get the titles sometime. Glad you enjoyed the book and pen and ink drawings - must have been fascinating.

The Flemish painter Peter Bruegel depicted some Meige patients (so we call them) in some paintings of the 15th century. The condition is still called Bruegel's Syndrome in some places.

I don't recall any portraits of any kind, except a singular self-portrait, done by van Gogh. He was mostly into landscapes, flowers, etc.

his landscapes are very beautiful and also some of his interiors of cafe life, as well as his flowers. i always found his portrits somewhat disturbing, except for the very intense one he did of himself, such strong bones. you know that a lot of artists of that time painted with lead-based paints without adequate skin protection or ventilation. i'm pretty sure this accounts for a lot of their supposed "crazinesses".

I just saw on the web that Peter Brueghel (1525-1569 (didn't live long did he?)) painted "De Gaper" "described the condition now commonly referred to as Meige's Syndrome II, or blepharospasm-oromandibular dystonia. The term Brueghel's syndrome is used when extensive mandibular involvement is a major component of the disease".

They suggested that for more information on Pietr Brueghel" see any good encyclopaedia".

The last show is on tomorrow night (Tuesday) at 9pm here - its on the adult brain and I'm really hoping they will discuss MS or Parkinson and the brain. I couldn't hope that they will discuss dystonia but who knows.... Perhaps the whole 4-hour series will show another time as well.

The teenage brain was super interesting (as were the others) - taking in adolescence and their mood swings, learning, memory, lack of sleep, organizational and awareness, changes in hormones, etc. Also drug addicts - one young man who took the drug and was shot in the legs and became disabled, took Baclofen for his trembling legs - and it worked and he was able to get off cocaine. Baclofen is now being researched for addicts.

They also talked about and with the cartoonist Jim Borgman (with Gerry Scott) who depicts ZITS that, apparently, is all about teenagers - I don't know this cartoon, perhaps its only shown in the U.S.

I'm really enjoying the series, albeit I have to watch tv lying down from the bottom slits of my eyes - oh well at least I manage it!

"The Secret Life of the Brain" is airing here locally for me in the Central Time Zone in the US at 8 pm on the local PBS station. I'm going to make a point to try to watch it or tape it. Our station sometimes re-airs things on the weekends. They also usually show a series such as this more than once.

June, I have to sit up and tuck my chin down so that my eyes are looking straight ahead or up in order to watch TV. If I lie down or recline back my eyes go ahead and shut. Must have to do with my apraxia. And that only works on a good eye day.

Sorry you had such bad side effects, Kathy, from your injections - hope they go away asap or sooner! I get mine tomorrow and am not looking forward to going out in our (also) very strong, cold winds - but am looking forward to getting some relief from the eye spasms which are rally bad now. I usually get 4-6 weeks of side effects but once through that, I am reasonable for another 4 months. We all differ so much don't we? Take care of yourself.

well since the temperature dropped in the 20's here and we are now having freezing rains, this partially explains the pain i felt, i'm pretty sure, along with those strong winds. Since the weather doesn't seem to bother anyone else as much, i'm again feeling like some sort of weather witch.

I am also a weather witch. Whenever the weather changes cold to hot, hot to cold, dry to humid etc., I get a lot of pain. This started when I was young and the weather changes would bring on asthma attacks. Now its pain - sometimes through out my whole body. It was so bad last year I was told I had fibromayalgia - which I don't. It's mostly due to changes in the barometric pressure. I live in Maine, so I know what those cold rainy days can do to you. It usually takes a day or two for my body to adjust. Drink lots of warm liquids, take warm bahs and stay as warm as possible. One of my favorite things to do is put a polar tech jacket in the dryer for a few minutes and put it on while its still nice and warm - very comforting.
I have also started with accupunture - which has really helped. They actually have needle patterns that address cold and wind!
Take care

Dear sister witch (witches were actually healers and were very sensitve women). My eyes and fibromyalgia are made worse by extreme changes in weather. Cold, wet, windy is terrible for both. The first year with BEB I could really tell when the barometric pressures changed. It doesn't seem to be as noticeable now. In TN the weather changes frequently. We have a saying if you don't like the weather today, just stick around it'll change tomorrow.

I watched (not very intently as the eyes were causing a problem) last night's section on the adult brain. I will need to watch the whole series again that's for sure.

The adult brain show was on: stroke victims (one man had no emotions left in the brain-seen as a void in the brain itself. He was able to think but was emotionally depleted (hard on him in his general life as well as his family). Depression (no physical damage seen in the brain)-Prozac, or similar drugs given to release seretonum (sp?) in the brain to help control. Post Dramatic Stress Disorder (PDSD) (an emotional disorder--fear, anger and control) in which beta blockers (given in the hospital emergency ward asap helped toweaken/stop PDSD.

The next show is on the 12th here and is on the aging brain.

No mention of MS, Parkinson or Dystonia yet.....still hoping!

I found one part of the episode especially interesting. They were talking about high levels of stress causing the maturing brain (from infancy to adulthood) to not develop normally and thereby possibly causing any number of problems (like depression)in later life. I would think that this might also leave one susceptible to other neurological conditions or to have a pre-disposition for them at any given time, especially if more stress was introduced.

I had a very stressful and unhappy childhood so this little tidbit caught my attention.
Just food for thought.

I intend watching the whole series again, Shirley - I must have missed that part. I had a particularly good childhood even though both parents were ill. My mother had chronic asthma due to my birth (always knew I was a trouble maker:-)) and the dust from WW2, and my family had an accident as a fire fighter during the war and was disabled. So both my parents were home and spent so much time with me that I could not have asked for a more loving home life - poor though, but happy. My stress came later on - divorced, single parent with 2 children and not one family member living in this country - it was tough. There's no doubt about it that stress can bring on any disease that is in your body - but whether stress actually causes it or not I don't know.

I'm not sure what your question refers to Kathy. The posts are getting so muddled up. We really should start a new post for each new subject. Anyway....perhaps you mean attching the neurons in the baby's cataract operation. If so, I don't remember - I didn't take it all in - and will have to rewatch what I've taped after my botox injections settle down a bit (and that could be a month as I get lots of side effects). I also intend making notes this time as I watch each segment - that should reinforce it in my brain!
