This chapter reviews movies from Hollywood that illustrate the effects of many diseases on the brain. These movies cover developmental disorders, disease in the spinal cord, brain stem, and cerebrum. The causes of these disparate injuries include congenital malformations, genetic abnormalities, trauma to the brain, vascular insufficiencies, tumors and infections. All of these selected movies are very entertaining and informative.
