In the midst of the perennial concerns parents bring to Dr. Claudia Gold, she shows the magical effect of seeing a problem from their child's point of view. Most parenting books teach parents what to do to solve behavior problems, but Dr. Gold shows parents how to be with a child.

Rolf Nelson of Wheaton College has been widely published in the fields of psychology and visual perception. Seeing Eye to I examines the human visual system, from basic processes like perceiving color and shape to recognizing and categorizing objects to self-awareness. Professor Nelson also demonstrates how the human brain constructs a representation of the world replete with meaning, a task beyond the capability of any current computer.
In the past, teasing out the intricacies of how the human brain makes sense of visual input was close to impossible. It was not until recently that scientists could directly observe individual neurons at work. Now the Allen Institute for Brain Science in Seattle is launching the Allen Brain Observatory to use this new technology to investigate cognition in an unusual manner: they make mice watch movies.
