Neuroscience at the Movies: Brainstorm

: Reel Science

This is great for rollercosters and sex but when scientist Walken is confronted with a tape recorded during someone’s death, he has to think twice before pressing play. Utilising Showscan special effects this is an undeniably stimulating film to kick off our Reel Science programme and ignite a discussion with Centre of Clinical Brain Sciences Professor Stephen Lawrie from the University of Edinburgh on the ethics and verity of neurological science in film.
