By February 25, 2016October 3rd, 2016No Comments

The event described below has already happened. View footage from the tribute to Dr. Diamond here:

My Love Affair with the Brain is a soon-to-be-on PBS documentary about the brain, the passion of scientific discovery, the creation of modern neuroscience, Albert Einstein, women in science, and love – all via the life and research of beloved professor and YouTube celebrity, Dr. Marian Diamond.

Marian Diamond’s research demonstrated the impact of enrichment – a powerful new understanding of the brain that has literally changed the world, from how we think about ourselves to how we raise our children. Dr. Diamond demonstrated anatomically, for the first time, what we now call plasticity and in so doing, shattered the old paradigm of understanding the brain as static and unchangeable.
