Omni Brain

Multimedia Friday – Brain Education Spoof

Look Around You: Brain. “The brain is basically a wrinkled bag of skin filled with warm water, veins, and thought muscles. … The opposite of the brain is probably the bum.” Brief vintage BBC parody of science education films about the brain. Watch through to the end, when a brain in a jar is rewarded with a special treat for performing a task.
