The Brain with David Eagleman

Who Is in Control?

Episode 3 | 55m 11s Video has closed captioning.

Dr. David Eagleman explores the great deception that greets us each morning when we awake: it feels as though we are in conscious control of our lives but the truth is that we are not. Instead almost every action, every decision, every belief that we hold is driven by parts of the brain that we have no access to.
