Brain Games

Brain Games
Brain Games, the three-part special on National Geographic Channel, uses interactive experiments, visual illusions, and other mental tricks to reveal the inner-workings of the brain. Wanna shake someone out of their I-can-too-text/talk-and-drive conviction? Wanna see cocksure crime eyewitnesses recall nearly every detail wrong? “Brain Games” delivers three distinct and equally mesmerizing hours of cleverly staged exercises demonstrating how the brain does its job. You’ll have great fun playing. Even when you learn just how (sigh) pathetic your own average performance has been. And that’s after playful narrator Neil Patrick Harris gives us every opportunity to try again. (He even tells us how to do it.) Thankfully, NPH also explains why our minds betray us. Get ready to have your mind messed with! "Brain Games" is a groundbreaking series that uses interactive experiments, misdirection and tricks to demonstrate how our brains create the illusion of seamless reality through our memory, through our sensory perception, and how we focus our attention.
