David Anderson: Your brain is more than a bag of chemicals

This quick TED talk entry is courtesy of TED.com. Modern psychiatric drugs treat the chemistry of the whole brain, but neurobiologist David Anderson believes in a more nuanced view of how the brain functions. He illuminates new research that could lead to targeted psychiatric medications — that work better and avoid side effects. How’s he doing it? For a start, by making a bunch of fruit flies angry. (Filmed at TEDxCaltech.)
