For a wealth of fascinating historical information on Kuru check out the website for the 2009 Australian documentary Kuru: the science and the sorcery. There are trailers for the show and many outtakes, picture galleries and video clips.

The whole show has been posted to YouTube, although not officially.

The picture shows anthropologist Ronald Berndt, who proposed that Kuru was a psychosomatic disease - a reaction by the locals to European contact.
