Our friends at Mental Floss have teamed up with National Geographic to air a live brain surgery.
On Sunday, Oct 25th, National Geographic Channel airs Brain Surgery Live, a 2-hr special, hosted by Bryant Gumbel. The show will be a celebration of the human brain and the incredible advancements in the field of brain surgery, and specifically deep brain stimulation.
In this type of surgery, the patient is actually kept awake throughout the procedure. And it’s amazing to see how these surgeries are changing lives.
