Hunting for Hediona
Nowadays, more and more people are being diagnosed with a mental disease. Science may now have found the solution for the likes of depression, Tourette and various compulsive disorders: Deep Brain Stimulation. With the help of electrodes in the brain a feeling of happiness might be activated or negative emotions could be suppressed. The question remains whether this is an ethical practice as the possibility to change peoples personality is seemingly becoming a reality. In this documentary both scientists and patients talk about their experience with the controversial treatment.
InScience is one of the largest science film festivals in Europe, and unique to The Netherlands. The festival is aimed at the intersection between film, science and society. The programme consists of science films, debates and an educational programme for children and youth.
