Abstract:

Using simple analogies, real-life case studies, and computer-generated images, this program shows how the brain works, explains the frequent battle between instinct and reason, and unravels the mysteries of memory and decision-making. It takes viewers inside the mind of a soldier under fire to see how decisions are made in extreme situations, examines how a person with autism develops remarkable skills, and takes on the age-old question of what makes one person good and another evil. Segments include Fear and Panic, Nerves and Stress, Sex on the Brain, Risk Response, Moral Decision, The Evil Mind, Memory Capacity, Amnesia, Sports Psychology, Extrasensory Perception, and The Next Leap.
