Subject: Video footage

Dear All,

I am part of a team producing a 14 episode educational television series 
titled 'Models of the Human Brain: A Multidisciplinary Perspective'. The 
series encompasses brain models drawn from psychology, psychiatry, and 
neurology, and also covers the biophysical (electrical), biochemical and 
molecular aspects of human brain function.  Pre-eminent brain scientists 
from around the world participated in the series, which goes to air in 
June 1995 in Australia (SBS Television), and possibly other countries 
thereafter. In addition, the series (and accompanying book) form the 
basis of a postgraduate 'Open Learning' course that will be offered by 13 
separate universities.

Part of my role as Production Assistant involves the sourcing of suitable 
video footage that will be used to embelish the programs and break up the 
visual monotony of lengthy 'talking head' interviews. Therefore, can 
anyone help me with:

* Video sequences, movies, or animations that are in any way related to 
neuroscience. Animated computer simulations, MRI/CT/PET images (static or 
animated in 3D), microscope images, etc. would all be useful. Footage 
running for as little as 10 seconds would be fine. PAL or NTSC video 
formats are acceptable on either VHS or BETA tape. Alternatively, most 
standard graphics formats (eg. TIFF, GIFF, MPEG) or specialised graphics 
formats (eg. Mac' QuickTime) would also be more than acceptable, and 
could thus be downloaded via the Net.

* Any figures/pictures/video that demonstrate, or could be used to describe, 
'computational' neuroscience models. Although the bulk of the series 
content is now defined, any new material or model that is contiguous with 
existing program material would most definitely by included. A brief one 
page description (with figures or video sequences, if available) explaining 
the essential features of the model would suffice.

* Information on how I can obtain suitable visual material (eg. other 
Internet addresses, imaging groups, etc.)

Any material that is included in the series will, of course, be formally 
acknowledged in the credits. I am happy to defray any financial costs 
incurred (eg. videotape purchase, postage, etc.) If you can help, I can 
be contacted via:
