The Blue Brain

The Blue Brain Project

“Reconstructing the brain piece by piece and building a virtual brain in a supercomputer—these are some of the goals of the Blue Brain Project.” The leaders of this project claim this virtual brain will be an exceptional tool to give neuroscientists a new understanding of the brain and a better understanding of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Depression.

I Remember Better When I Paint

“This informative documentary offers pivotal new insights into the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease through creative arts. Leading international neurologists share findings which support the transformative power of drawing, painting, music and museum visits, illustrating how the parts of the brain related to emotions and creativity are largely spared by the disease, and therefore dramatically changing the way we look at Alzheimer’s and related disorders. The film shows how creative workshops are being embraced as exciting and effective therapy methods in several countries worldwide, opening doors of communication between those living with the disease and their caregivers and families.”
