What’s the secret to nurturing the development of a child’s brain? In this illuminating 2017 documentary called BRAINIOUS, journalist and director Stéphanie Brillant assembles experts from neuroscience, psychology, culture and education to help us better understand how a child’s brain develops through social and emotional experiences.

A journalist, movie director and TV host at France24, TV5Monde and Canal+, Stéphanie Brilliant has dedicated her career to the study of human potential. In 2007, she founded the media production company "Innertainement" to entertain audiences with content of substance and value.
