The program, hosted by Dr. David Eagleman, neuroscientist, New York Times best-selling author and a Guggenheim Fellow, reveals the human story by blending scientific truth with innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories. With barely a brain scanner or a white coat in sight, “THE BRAIN WITH DAVID EAGLEMAN” focuses on understanding the fundamental truths of what it means to be human now and in the coming centuries, while communicating these elegant and simple ideas as they apply to us and our experiences.

Dr. Eagleman’s exciting multi-disciplinary approach has earned him respect — and fans — across the globe. He will take viewers on a fascinating journey through our inner cosmos, exploring the brain’s neural landscape while asking profound questions like “What is reality?” and “Who is in control?” He will also look at the darker side of humanity in order to understand why the brain drives us towards certain actions and behaviors.
