The Body: Series 1
The image of the human body was that the brain is the command center and the other organs obey the orders from the brain. We now know more.
Part 1: The Networks Within Our Bodies
The brain was once thought to be the body’s control tower, issuing commands to the other organs. But scientists are discovering that communication flows between all the organs in our bodies. They transmit messages that can boost immunity, improve memory, strengthen bones and even lengthen lifespan.
Part 2: Keys to Overcoming Modern Day Diseases
New research sheds light on the functions of fat and bone. In fact, fat and bone are not static tissue but release signaling molecules to dynamically interact with the other organs and support our health. Fat was found to control our appetite and the bone to work to keep us young.
Part 3: The Miracles Within
The cutting-edge research of our organs networking activities greatly contributes to scientists pursuit of the largest mystery about human life and birth. How does a single cell ultimately grows into all the varieties of our organs each with complex structure and function?
