Anyone who has ever marveled at the human brain and how it works should be interested in the special put out by History coming out May 2nd. The Brain explores the interactions of instinct and reason, and how memory and decision making take place. Examples examined in the special are a soldier making decisions when under attack, how autistic persons develop their uncanny talents, and the difference between the brains between an “good” and “evil” person.
The human brain is one of the most amazing mechanisms we use on a daily basis. Being so complex yet the brain only averages 1.5 kg and only needs about as much power as a light bulb, something old cartoons seemed to have gotten right. The Brain covers much of the advancement in research we have had in the last 5 years, which far surpasses the previous 100 years and you can find out for yourself May 2nd, when it releases for RRP $14.95.
