Trying to recall an episode of a show, likely horror or scifi ?
It was older. Some guy left his brain to scientists and they put it in a box and did something so it functioned as the person he was, conveying emotional responses to the world around him. After they have done this they let his widow know about it and she convinces them to let her take the brain in a box home as it's her husband. Then provides it with negative stimuli by doing everything he wouldn't let her do while he was alive, right in front of him

That's Roald Dahl's short story "William and Mary" that was used in Tales of the Unexpected (1979) and the earlier television series "Way Out" (1961)
