"The Brain with David Eagleman" is six one-hour episodes that tell the story of the inner workings of the brain and take viewers on a visually spectacular journey into why they feel and think the things they do.The series, hosted by Dr. David Eagleman, neuroscientist, New York Times best-selling author and a Guggenheim Fellow, will reveal the human story by blending scientific truth with innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories. With barely a brain scanner or a white coat in sight, The Brain focuses on understanding the fundamental truths of what it means to be human now and in the coming centuries, while communicating these elegant and simple ideas as they apply to us and our experiences. Dr. Eagleman's exciting multi-disciplinary approach has earned him respect — and fans — across the globe. He will take viewers on a fascinating journey through our inner cosmos, exploring the brain's neural landscape while asking profound questions like "What is reality?" and "Who is in control?" He will also look at the darker side of humanity in order to understand why the brain drives us towards certain actions and behaviors.
Dr. David Eagleman takes viewers on an extraordinary journey, exploring how the brain, locked in silence and darkness without direct access to the world, conjures the rich and beautiful world we all take for granted.
Explore how we are our brains, how our personality, emotions and memories are encoded as neural activity. The process of becoming continues through our lives. We change our brains and our brains change us.
Dr. Eagleman explores the unconscious brain and reveals that everything from our movements, to our decisions, to our behavior is largely controlled and orchestrated by an invisible world of unconscious neural activity.
Learn how the brain navigates the tens of thousands of conscious decisions we make every day and the many more unconscious decisions we make about everything from whom we find attractive to what we perceive.
See how the brain relies on other brains to thrive and survive. This neural interdependence underpins our need to group together - and our capacity to do the best and the worst of things to each other.
Join Dr. Eagleman as he journeys into the future and asks what's next for the human brain and for our species. He speculates that our descendants may be so different from us that we'll be strangers to them.
Looks like something went completely wrong!
But don't worry - it can happen to the best of us,
- and it just happened to you.
