Brain Games was hailed by critics as “tremendous fun” and “makes science entertaining,” and fans on Twitter joined the chorus, calling the show “mind blowing” and “coolest show on tv.” The new series explores a world where time slows down, reality is an illusion and things aren’t always as they seem—the human brain. Host and wonder junkie Jason Silva (@JasonSilva) sizes up the human brain with an intricate series of interactive experiments to see how easily the brain can be fooled, uncovering the surprising nature of how we process information, feel emotions and perceive the world around us. Get ready for lots of mind-blowing illusions, games and challenges that will make you question whether “seeing is actually believing.”
Brian Games continues Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on National Geographic Channel.
