This PBS documentary takes a look at the age-old quest of humans to understand themselves. The study of human behavior and the workings of the mind have been a subject of fascination since humans became conscious of themselves. All cultures have stories to explain human motivation. The modern scientific age has had its own ways of analyzing human psychology. The debate continues on the roles played by genetics and environmental influences. This video examines some popular theories of recent origin, from psychoanalysis, to behaviorism, to chemical treatments, to controlling mental imbalances. The film features case studies and experiments, presenting the latest research on the brain and the mind. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
