An illustrated discussion of neuroanatomy

Despite numerous advancements in, and increased knowledge of, neuroscience, there are still common myths about the brain that many believe to be fact. One example is the notion that we only use 10 percent of our brains.

In this fun, educational video, Montreal neuroscientist Kenneth Stephen Dyson, PhD, and his sons Taj and Deszmo shed light on misperceptions about the inner workings of the brain through a illustrated discussion of neuroanatomy. The video and nine others are People’s Choice Award nominees in this year's Brain Awareness Video Contest hosted by the Society for Neuroscience.
