This series is absolutely brilliant and thought-provoking - but at these prices...per episode, I cannot support it. Externally from the price, it merits a 5/5, but only a wealthy few can afford the entire series (and it is worth watching the entire series) - hence not embracing the ideas of education and awareness (not even close). The good part is that you can watch the episodes here:
[...]...if that changes and the price does not go down, I will change my review to 1/5 stars.

Not only is this series an excellent tool for learning - it is an excellent tool for teachers. For me, it has provided a wealth of examples that are intuitive for those interested in listening.

Another excellent discussion! This episode would be particularly interesting and inspiring to people who have or know people who have bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. This discussion focuses on depression, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Two of the guests are inspirational examples in that they both have disorders which would be debilitating if they didn't receive the treatments they are getting. Elyn Saks who has schizophrenia wrote about her struggles with the disease in her book "The Center Cannot Hold". Kay Redfield Jamison has bipolar disorder and wrote a memoir called "Nothing Was the Same". Both of these women are distinguished in their own right. One is a Psychiatrist and the other is a lawyer. They both talked about how much their treatments (medications, conitive behaviorial therapy and psychodynamic therapy) has benefited them.

Helen Mayberg of Emory University talked about deep brain stimulation in treating depression and how it involves slowing down activity in a part of the brain called the subcollosal cingulate which is usually overactive in depressed patients.

For a particularly interesting article on psychodynamic therapy, see the Nov./Dec. 2010 issue of Scientific American Mind.

Thank you very much to Charlie Rose and to the participants of this ninth episode on the brain. Having a son whose diagnosed bi-polar disorder is complicated by drug addiction, I am grateful for this program. Learning of the hope and health of the medicines combined with appropriate therapy can guide those of us who love a person diagnosed with these illnesses. While I may not be the person to help my son, maybe I can help someone else's son or daughter just by offering hope to parents or siblings by the information on this program. Thank you, Mr. Rose.

The interview of experts who themselves have experienced bipolar and more, but have survived, appears to be a basis for legitimate hope to a victim of the life diminishing conditions discussed. Thank you.

This is a wonderful DVD! It has so much information about schizophrenia and bi-polar disease--information that I never heard before.I especially liked the two women who were on who have had these illnesses. They talked about how they were able to become so successful while being treated for the illnesses. I have given 2 of these DVD's to people who have family members with these illnesses and they felt the same way about it.
