MY LOVE AFFAIR WITH THE BRAIN: The Life and Science of Dr. Marian Diamond
My Love Affair with the Brain is an award-winning PBS documentary that brings the viewer right into the heart of science and into a deeper understanding of your own brain. Critically acclaimed, extensively tested for educational use from 5th grade thru Nobel Prize winners, this film is an intimate and inspirational portrait of one of the founders of modern neuroscience.
Dr. Marian Diamond was the first to publish evidence that the brain can change with experience and improve with enrichment. The film “My Love Affair with the Brain” documents her groundbreaking accomplishments, at a time when few women entered science. The film is narrated by Mayim Bialik, star of TV’s BIG BANG THEORY (playing Amy Fowler) and BLOSSOM (playing Blossom). Mayim not only plays a neuroscientist on TV, but is one in real life!
After the movie, there will be panel discussion with local neuroscientists Dr. Jayatri Das from the Franklin Institute, and Dr. Oné R. Pagán from West Chester University.
