A Matter of Life and Death: Neuroscience on the Silver Screen

Roger Ebert called A Matter of Life and Death (1946) “one of the most audacious films ever made.” The film depicts British Air Force pilot Peter Carter (David Niven) after a near death experience in which on-going hallucinations (waking dreams) convince him he was not meant to survive. A post-film discussion will feature medical insights on neuroscience and the workings of the brain. Presented by the Indiana Medical History Museum and the American Association of Neuroscience
