Alternative title
The Brain with Dr. Eagleman
Synopsis
Using innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories, neuroscientist David Eagleman explores the wonders of the human brain. Episodes include:
-What is Reality?: How the brain constructs our multi-sensory reality from within the silence and darkness of the skull.
-What Makes Me?: How our personality, memories, and sense of self all emerge from neural activity. We are our brains.
-Who is in Control?: How the unconscious brain controls much of who we are and what we do.
-How Do I Decide?: How the brain navigates the myriad of conscious and unconscious decisions we make every day.
-Why Do I Need You?: How the human brain depends on other brains to thrive and survive.
-Who Will We Be?: Dr. Eagleman journeys into the future, and asks what’s next for the human brain, and for our species.
