  • The Brain with Dr. Eagleman

    Neuroscientist David Eagleman explores the wonders of the human brain in an epic series that reveals the ultimate story of us, why we feel and think the things we do. The Brain blends science with innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories, and addresses some big questions.

    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.
