Pleasure and Pain

Video duration: 49:58Expires: 09/26/13Video has closed captioning.

With his customary wit, wisdom and willingness to get involved, Michael Mosley gets to grips with the fascinating worlds of pleasure and pain. Teasing out the precise neural circuitry that allows us to experience pleasure, Michael discovers how pleasure is at the root of our ability to make sense of the world, and how it reinforces healthy behaviours such as eating, having sex and keeping warm.
