The mysterious case of Phineas Gage fundamentally altered our understanding of mental health, neuroscience, and behaviour. In 1848, a doctor saved a man’s life after a terrible accident which damaged his brain and appeared to change his personality. For the first time, this incredible true story is brought to life in a 20-minute film. After the screening, hear from the film-makers, and listen to staff from the Nuffield Department of Clinical Neurosciences discussing their present-day work on the brain.
