The long and illustrious history of neuroscience at Oxford, and neurology in particular, is the topic of this highly informative and inspiring documentary produced by BBC Inside Out South.
Aarti Jagannath from our Oxford's Sleep and Circadian Neuroscience Institute presents this episode, which is the first in a series about how the NHS changed our world, featuring a range of different hospitals in the UK.
Aarti goes back to the origins of our neuroscience in Oxford, heading to the Bodleian to look at Thomas Willis's work, and learning from DPAG's Zoltan Molnar about Sherrington's research.
It was in Oxford that the term 'neurology' was first coined, and the Radcliffe Infirmary became a world-renowned institution for its study and clinical practice. Today, the John Radcliffe Hospital is at the forefront of brain surgery, and Aarti follows several patients on their journeys with neurosurgeons Tipu Aziz and James FitzGerald from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neuroscience.
