Emory University's Brain Health Center studies the mysteries of the brain: everything from sleep disorders to degenerative brain diseases. The university has partnered with GPB to create a new television show, "Your Fantastic Mind." It aims to demystify these challenging health concepts and highlight clinical advances in neurology, psychiatry and rehabilitation medicine.
The show's host Jaye Watson joined "On Second Thought" to discuss the upcoming season, which premieres tonight on GPB.
Watson worked as a broadcast journalist in Atlanta for over 20 years before collaborating with the Emory Brain Health Center.
"One thing I have now that I didn't have before is time," said Watson, who often followed subjects for months and even years to capture their full stories for "Your Fantastic Mind."
Upcoming episodes profile traumatic brain injuries and the effect of video games on young people's cognitive development. The show premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on GPB and streamed simultaneously on the GPB's Facebook page.
