The Brain with David Eagleman Full Episode Guide

  • In ‘Who will we be?’ Dr. David Eagleman journeys into the future, and asks what’s next for the human brain, and for our species. Mother nature has evolved a brain that is eminently flexible, able to rewire itself according to whatever environment it finds itself in, which means that as technological advances continue apace, our technology is on a crash course with our biology.

  • In ‘Why Do I Need You?’ Dr. David Eagleman explores how the human brain relies on other brains to thrive and survive. This neural interdependence begins at birth. Dr. David Eagleman invites a group of babies to a puppet show to showcase their ability to discern who is trustworthy, and who isn’t.

  • Discover 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.

  • Dr. Eagleman explores the unconscious brain, and reveals that everything from our movements, to our decisions, to our behaviour is largely controlled and orchestrated by an invisible world of unconscious neural activity.

  • Examining how our brains, how our personality, emotions, and memories are encoded as neural activity. The process of becoming someone continues through our lives. We change our brain, and our brain changes us.

  • 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.
