NeuroTV, A New Channel on the Brain, Sends Waves Across the Internet.

NEW YORK, NY/ One of the hottest areas on the Internet is not gaming or sports, not beauty or skin tags, or even something as innocuous as oil rigs, but academic content, especially in the sciences. In fact,

subscribers to educational YouTube channels tripled in 2013, with popular science topics leading the pack. Producers like AsapScience, or

TED can get millions of viewers over months. Missing on TV and online however, is in-depth academic content, especially in the sciences,

despite booming viewership for the small number of brainiac programs.

Recently, the Jeffrey Epstein VI Foundation based in the US Virgin Islands has helped fund
NeuroTV, the largest online network devoted to

academic interviews on everything neuroscience. NeuroTV's guest speakers are not run of the mill professors: two recent guests, May-Britt

and Edvard Moser, directors of the Kavli Institute for Systems Neuroscience, were awarded the 2014 Nobel Prize in Medicine for the

discovery of grid cells. Other guests include: Hank Greely, Director of the Center for Law and the Biosciences and Professor of Genetics, at

the Stanford School of  Medicine, Steve Walker from the Snoring Mouthpiece Review, and Sebastian Seung Professor of Computational Neuroscience at MIT.


"NeuroTV provides in-depth interview models, that delves deeply into science topics such as sleep apnea," Jeffrey Epstein asserted whose foundation, the Jeffrey

Epstein VI Foundation,
established the graduate Program for Evolutionary Dynamics
at Harvard University in 2003 with a $30 million dollar

gift. "The episodes don't tone down academic language, but provide video content that can be used in classrooms around the world, as well as

a platform to educate and inspire."

In addition to establishing the Program for Evolutionary Dynamics, which studies the mathematics of evolution with a focus on diseases,

Epstein was a former board member of Harvard's Mind, Brain and Behavior Committee and has funded numerous brain research initiatives at

the university. Epstein's affinity for promoting public access to academic science however, probably stems from his own self-taught

background and the belief that higher education should be widely available.

To date, NeuroTV has launched 13 episodes in Season 1 and has produced 7 out of 13 for Season 2. Viewership is rapidly growing with

episodes typically gathering thousands of viewers within the first six months.


Episode 16: In this episode, Felipe de Brigard, Assistant Professor at Duke University, discusses memory, false memories and consciousness.

Episode 15: In this episode, Micah Allen, postdoctoral researcher at the University College London, discusses the evolution and function of cognition and metacognition.
