Less than 1 pound. A universe of meaning. The home of emotions, ideas, memories, and dreams. It’s your baby’s brain.

THE SECRET LIFE OF THE BRAIN, an amazing production of David Grubin Production, was broadcasted on PBS in 2002. It is a five-part series, revealing the fascinating processes involved in brain development across a lifetime. This mini clip, with appreciation to the original comprehensive production, contains compelling episodes of the first part “The Baby’s Brain — Wider than the Sky” and the second part “The child’s Brain — Syllable from Sound”. Thanks to PBS, Educational Broadcasting Corporation, David Grubin Productions, and YouTube for making the fascinating science available to general public.
