Cave Diving Doctor - Looking for Fish Brains with Daphne Soares

Cave diving is a part of scuba diving - but only for the brave few. It requires that you have everything squared away in your mind and diving skills. For Dr Daphne Soares from the University of Maryland, cave diving is part of her job description.
