Heartbreak ScienceStreaming Video - 2010
Is the heart more than just a muscular pump? Does it have a neurological importance, or perhaps even a mental or emotional capacity, overlooked by modern science? This program examines controversial theories about the heart emerging from diverse perspectives. Dr. Rollin McCraty of central California's Institute of HeartMath outlines basic ideas of cardiac-related emotional intelligence; Dr. Gary Schwartz, director of the VERITAS Research Program at the University of Arizona, explains his notions of recurrent feedback and cellular memory and their basis in heart transplant cases; while Dr. Harry Burns, Scotland's Chief Medical Officer, offers a more mainstream medical view. Contains graphic footage of heart surgery. A Prospero Production for BBC.
