"Brain Games" (TV show) is a National Geographic Channel series that invites you to explore a world where time slows down, reality is an illusion and things aren't always as they seem — the human brain. Taking a close look at your brain's gray matter, and all the neurons and synapses in between, the series uncovers the surprising nature of how we process information, feel emotions and perceive the world around us.
