Sand mandala: Tibetan Buddhist ritual
 
03:18
Mandalas are of profound symbolic value in Tantric Buddhism and are regarded by some as sacred. They can take a variety of forms: from simple diagrams and elaborate paintings on cloth, to complicated patterns of coloured sand and large three dimensional carved structures. Sand Mandalas represent the universe and act as an architectural blueprint of the enlightened mind. They can also function as a contemplative aid in visualisation meditation. Mandalas often refer to secret Tantric doctrine and highlight the ideals of the Buddhist path which includes putting an end to suffering, attaining enlightenment and understanding reality through the Wisdom of Emptiness. At the heart of this medicine mandala is a lotus throne and on it is a sacred medical text. Seated within the petals of a lotus flower are the Eight Medicine Buddhas, who came into the world to save sentient beings from the five degenerations: shortened life-span, delusions, degenerate persons, time and wrong views. In the outer sections the disciples of the Medicine Buddhas are represented by symbols. A rare opportunity to observe the creation and offering of a "Mela" or Medicine Mandala, made from tiny grains of vibrantly coloured sand, with Tibetan Buddhist monks from the Tashi Lhunpo monastery in India. Sand Mandalas are unique to Tibetan Buddhism, representing an architectural blueprint of the enlightened mind, functioning - among other things - as a contemplative aid in visualisation meditation.

Dissecting Brains
 
07:07
On Wednesdays at Hammersmith Hospital in London, a few recently preserved human brains are dissected according to an international protocol and stored in a tissue bank for further research. The brains have mostly been donated by people with Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis (both degenerative and incurable diseases of the central nervous system), but control samples of healthy brains are required too. This documentary is a modified version of one which appears in the Brains exhibition at Wellcome Collection, with an added commentary from the neuropathologist, Steve Gentleman. It conveys the craft discipline exercised by scientists in their quest to understand these often-tragic conditions. With thanks to the Multiple Sclerosis Society and Parkinson's UK Tissue Bank at Imperial College London.

Chamber pot: portable toilets through history
 
05:02
These two chamber pots date from the mid-19th century and their primary objective was to collect urine and faeces. Chamber pots were often kept in bedrooms, but they were also kept in drawing rooms for social occasions and in carriages for use during a long journey. Some even had caricatures of people painted in the bottom of the pot, which begs the question: whose face would you have on the bottom of yours?

Optical projection tomography
 
03:40
Watch this video to hear Dr James Sharpe explain what optical projection tomography is and how it works. Optical projection tomography (OPT) is a relatively new imaging technique, developed in 2002 with the aim of accurately imaging the development of 3D structures. It works by projecting light through a whole specimen. The specimen is prepared in an organic clearing agent to assist light penetration and is mounted on a revolving stage. The light passes through the sample and is captured by a detector, producing a 'quantative shadow'. The denser the tissue, the less light that penetrates and so the shadow created is darker. A series of these 'shadow projections' are captured at different angles as the sample revolves, so that information is generated through 360 degrees. All the images are reconstructed using computer software to create an accurate 3D image of the whole sample. This technique is useful for tracking gene expression using visible light as well as fluorescence methods and has the added benefit that larger samples can be imaged than is normally possible on standard confocal microscopes.

Grills: jewellery for your teeth
 
02:23
Dental decorations have been around for hundreds of years. From ancient Mayan tooth drilling to gold pegs, our teeth have been used to embellish and reflect aspects of our identity and culture. Gold fronts or grills were established in New York in the 1970s. Tooth adornments were soon worn by rap and hip hop artists and became a popular fashion statement. The process of making dental grills - or grillz - involves taking a mould of a client's upper or lower teeth, fabricating a wax design, casting the metal, perfecting the fit, adding jewels and etchings, before polishing to a brilliant finish.

Scold's bridle: instrument of torture and punishment

Resembling an iron muzzle, the Scold’s bridle was a device originating in the 16th century that aimed to humiliate and cause great pain to the wearer.

How emotion affects our behaviour | Ray Dolan
 
02:50
Ray explains how positive and negative emotions can lead to how we make decisions and in some cases emotional states can lead to irrational decisions. Ray Dolan’s research is concerned with a neurobiological characterisation of human emotion and how it interacts with other components of cognition, particularly attention, memory and decision making.  An emphasis in his recent work has been to link brain activity to theoretical models of decision making, particularly models derived from reinforcement learning theory. He is the author of 400 original papers and is ranked as one of the most cited scientists in the world in the field of Neuroscience and Behaviour.
