Watch Brain on Fire


Brain on Fire is based on the personal memoir of New York Post reporter Susannah Cahalan. After showing flu-like symptoms, Susannah starts to behave erratically, including hearing things that were not said and being sensitive to loud noises. Doctors initially dismiss her illness, thinking it was due to partying too much and working too hard. Her behavior becomes more erratic, and she is eventually diagnosed with anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, a rare brain inflammation. With treatment, she fully recovers and writes a book about her experience, helping others with the same illness.
