Closed Captioning and Transcripts Now Available for Videos and Podcasts!

At the Dana Foundation, we strive to make credible and current information about the brain available to as many people as possible. As part of that effort, we have recently taken steps to make our materials accessible to people who are deaf or hard of hearing.

The majority of our YouTube videos are now closed captioned, including our Neuroscience and Society Series, public talks organized by AAAS and the Dana Foundation covering exciting topics in brain science such as architecture and the brain, truth and lying, and meditation. Our Cerebrum podcasts, which feature our Cerebrum editor in conversation with neuroscientists on topics such as the challenge of overcoming glioblastoma, how the human neocortex sets us apart, and Ketamine’s potential to effectively treat depression, now have accompanying transcripts.

Looking for one of our closed caption videos to start with? Check out our brand new Successful Aging and Your Brain On Demand video below to learn about how the brain works, brain diseases and disorders, and tips for leading a brain healthy lifestyle!

Dana Launches Expert Videos for the Public

The Dana Foundation is happy to announce a new resource available on its YouTube channel–a compilation of brain science videos featuring Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives (DABI) neuroscientists on their fields of expertise.

DABI members are prominent neuroscientists from around the world, who have pledged their commitment to advancing public awareness and education about the progress and promise of brain research. With over 350 Alliance members, it can be hard to keep track of the latest in their areas of research. This collection of videos will make the information more accessible to the public.

In this series, there are 87 playlists dedicated to a diverse range of topics in neuroscience (i.e. dementia, stress, neural plasticity, etc.), and each is populated with videos featuring DABI members. The videos are dated from 2010 to the present day, and new content will be posted as it becomes available.

In addition to being a comprehensive resource for brain science information, this series serves as a celebration of the work done by neuroscientists around the world.
