All in the Mind - Big Brain Projects; Anti-depressants; learning disability and bereavement

Europe and the USA are both running large projects to map the brain, but will this approach pay off? Plus bereavement counselling for adults with learning disabilities.

In the US scientists are working out the details of President Obama's $100 million BRAIN initiative, and the EU is funding the billion euro Human Brain project. What will these expensive projects tell us, and are we even asking the right questions? Mind Hacker Vaughan Bell analyses the debate.

Novelist Alex Peston talks about his essay on creativity and antidepressants, and Claudia Hammond asks Nooreen Akhtar of Aberdeen University about her analysis of how antidepressants are portrayed in the press.

Noelle Blackman of Respond discusses the benefits of bereavement counselling for adults with learning disabilities.
