The Series

Our brain makes us who we are and yet the way it works has been a mystery for much of human civilization. We all know that we think, but not how we think. Deep inside every brain is a vast hidden world of complexity that defies description. Bruce will explore how our brains work and just what makes us truly human.



Lecture 1 - What's In Your Head? Why does your brain look like a giant walnut and how does it create it’s own version of reality?

Lecture 2 - Who's In Charge Here Anyway? How your brain decides what to trust and what to ignore, without you even realising.

Lecture 3 - Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking? Why our brains are built to read other people’s minds and why we can feel someone else’s pain.
