Although the human brain remains a mystery, it is gradually yielding to scientific inquiry-either as the main focus of study or in comparison with other forms of intelligence. This program features doctors and scientists who work with human, animal, or artificial brains in order to understand emotion, anatomical movement, and decision making. Experiments and case studies include the treatment of a young man born without a corpus callosum; fruit fly research at Caltech that may provide insight into the human brain and nervous system; fMRI tests that measure the brain's involvement in moral and ethical choices; and NASA's development of the tool-wielding A.T.H.L.E.T.E. robot.
