Dr. Eduardo Rodriguez is the surgeon responsible for the first-ever successful complete face transplant. Two years ago he conducted a delicate and dangerous operation that lasted a record-breaking 36 hours. How was he able to maintain concentration for such a long time? In this Brainwave session we aim to find out. This is a filmed conversation from last years’ Brainwave series.

Includes a post-screening discussion moderated by neuroscientist Leah Kelly.
