Topic 8: How the brain and nervous system develop, adapt and even allow some of us to learn things; how our nervous system allows the brain to control movement and response to stimuli; what happens when the brain goes wrong; and how do plants cope without a brain?
Starting off with "the most important reaction on the planet", photosynthesis, then covering the current topics of global warming and climate change, with all the associated ecological impacts. Then we switch scale completely and look at micro-organisms and how they attack our bodies and the defence mechanisms found in the immune system. We also take a brief look into developments in the field of forensic science.
