At age 95, the poet Stanley Kunitz was named U.S. poet laureate and was still writing new poems and reading to live audiences-an inspiring example of the brain’s vitality in the final years of life. This program presents recent discoveries in neuroscience that tell us how the brain ages, and how that aging process and intact mental functions aren’t mutually exclusive. The film demonstrates that older brains continue producing new neurons and possess unique characteristics that form the basis for wisdom. Alzheimer’s disease is also an important topic.

Only four weeks into human gestation, the brain’s first cells, the neurons, are already forming at an astonishing rate—250,000 every minute. This program illustrates that process and the more complex brain development that occurs during an infant’s life, both before and following birth. Viewers learn how vision and the visual cortex come into play; what happens when a baby is born with visual impairment, such as infant cataracts; and many more facts and insights regarding the early brain’s ability to shape itself in response to the demands of the world.
