The Infinite Monkey Cage - Series 7 - 4. Brain Science

Brian Cox and Robin Ince are joined by comedian Jo Brand and neuroscientist Brian Butterworth to ask whether science will ever be able to really understand the human mind.

Will science ever understand the human mind? Brian Cox and Robin Ince are joined on stage by comedian and former psychiatric nurse, Jo Brand, and neuroscientists Sophie Scott and Brian Butterworth. With ever more sensitive brain scanning techniques and advances in brain science, how close are we to understanding the inner workings of the human mind - or is this a quest that still remains in the hands of the philosophers? Producer: Alexandra Feachem Presenters: Robin Ince and Brian Cox.
