Description:

“Placebo: Mind Over Medicine? Films for the Humanities & Sciences, Discovery Channel University”. This program critically explores a phenomenon that has haunted medical science for centuries.  Exclusive footage documents recent case studies of scientific breakthroughs in the use of placebos to treat depression, knee pain, skin conditions, and multiple sclerosis in Los Angeles, Texas, and Italy. This challenge to the foundation of modern medicine includes numerous interviews with noted psychiatrists, psychologists, and surgeons from UCLA and Baylor College of Medicine, among others. Diane will introduce the films and facilitate a question and answer session after the screening. Keep your mind young by thinking, discovering, learning new concepts, and exploring new dimensions.
