This episode takes us through the rich history of psychiatry, from demonic possessions to madhouses, including lobotomies and drug experiments. In the operating room, we witness electroconvulsive therapy treatments, formerly known as “shock therapy.” Then we shift our focus to the heart and the history of cardiology, showing viewers how we discovered that the heart and electricity go hand-in-hand, and also where the famous symbolism of the heart comes from. In the operating room, our cameras give viewers a behind-the-scenes view of a delicate procedure on a patient suffering from atrial fibrillation.
