Jan 12, 2016, 09:22 PM

What weighs roughly 3 pounds, has a hundred million times the processing power of an iPad and burns the same amount of energy as a dim lightbulb? That’s right, the brain, the most complex organ in the human body, perhaps the universe. This week on the show we hear from a team of UW Medicine physicians that are ready to help patients when things go wrong with this extraordinary part of our makeup. From earlier detection of Alzheimer’s disease and innovative new treatments for Epilepsy, to the latest, most effective Stroke interventions, UW Medicine has the experts to help unravel the mysteries of the human brain. #neurology
