A fascinating, albeit some what repetitive look at how the human mind works and changes.

While there was some fascinating info on the ability of say a stroke-damaged brain to right itself with exercise and persistance, I was not able to listen to all the CDs in the set. This was due to the various descriptions of scientific experiments on chimpanzees and rats. For example, the top of a chimp's skull was sawed off so that electrodes could be inserted in his brain to test what????how his motor activities align with prompts from the wires stuck there. In another experiment a chimp's fingers were sewn together for another test of motor skills.

I don't care what kind of fascinating research you come up with--none of justifies this kind of cruelty especially to retrieve results that any kindegarten child could figure. The cruelty is only outdone by the absurdity of it all. If this is what passs for science these days, count me out!!!!!!

Interesting concepts, but a bit of a yawn at times.
