The programmes explore three aspects of human behaviour: issues in the delivery of mental health services, from new schemes to help service users to the side effects of drugs; the latest neuroscience research, from multimillion pound projects to map the brain to the human stories of having your brain studied; and new ideas in psychology, such as research into memory or into phobias.

The programmes feature interviews with academic researchers, mental health practitioners, and people with psychological issues.
