Brains in motion: Inside the Brain
About the film
For this film, the Big Picture team met Sarah Scott, a charming young woman who experienced a stroke at the age of 18 whilst still at school. Now 22, Sarah is slowly recovering but continues to experience problems with both written and spoken language.
For this film, Sarah kindly agreed to visit the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging, submitting to a brain scan in their massive MRI machine. While there, Sarah also took advantage of the opportunity to quiz the people behind the scanner and the scientists who study the images it produces, in the hope that they might discover clues to help present and future stroke patients.
A film by Barry J Gibb.
