My Love Affair with the Brain : The Life and Science of Dr. Marian Diamond screening
Monday, November 14, 2016 @ 18:00–19:05
The Little Theatre will screen the High Falls Film Festival's Audience Choice — BEST of the FEST Documentary, My Love Affair with the Brain : The Life and Science of Dr. Marian Diamond (Catherine Ryan and Gary Weimberg, USA 2016, Documentary Feature Film, 61 min.).
Meet Dr. Marian Diamond, one of the founders of modern neuroscience. This documentary mixture of real science and real life reveals a unique portrait of one woman's life as a pioneer in the emerging field of neuroscience. Dr. Diamond decisively challenged old views and changed forever our paradigm for understanding the brain. Enrichment and plasticity were the scientific battleground for this "brain whisperer." My Love Affair with the Brain was filmed over five years and is part biography, part scientific adventure story, and part inspirational tale.
