The Human Spark

Peer into Alan Alda’s head to find out which parts of our brain are responsible for our most human characteristics. Where do tool use and language reside? And how do our brains allow us to understand symbolism, figure out what others are thinking, and even travel in time? Are insight and imagination what really make humans unique?


  1. So is there a link for this?! does he really do something about brains!?

  2. The link is in the title.

    And yes, lots of brains and Alan Alda!
