Do you ever wonder what makes us tick? The way we act, feel and even process information from the world around us? All of it starts with the brain. CNN's Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta is tapping his decades of experience as a neurosurgeon to explore the many states of the brain – distracted, nourished, concussed, frightened and more. Our brains are in constant conversation with our bodies, so the condition of one can have direct effect on the other. Sanjay will provide insights into how to actually build a stronger brain and keep it sharp.
Dr. Sanjay Gupta examines the potential benefits of medical marijuana. Over the last 10 years, Dr. Gupta's reporting on the topic has produced seven CNN documentaries. In his most recent investigation, he meets scientists and families who found success using marijuana for patients suffering with dementia. This special report originally aired on CNN on August 6, 2023.
