The 2011 Brain Awareness Video Contest winning video, The Treasure Hunt, was created by Shiree Heath, a graduate student at The University of Queensland in Australia. The video focuses on aphasia, the loss of a person’s ability to speak or understand spoken or written language due to disease or injury of the brain. The animation tells of a child’s quest to uncover his grandfather’s “buried” words, much like a treasure hunt. Along the way, the “hunt” explains how the brain processes language and how that process goes awry in aphasia.
