Brain Games, a documentary on National Geographic Channel, uses interactive experiments, visual illusions, and other mental tricks to reveal the inner-workings of the brain. In every episode, they explore the parts of the human brain that has affects on perception, memory and overall cognition. With each "brain game", the viewer can actively participate and test themselves.
In this episode, we find out if people can trust their own brains. We'll see the many ways your brain deceives you and leads you astray on an almost daily basis. Most of us are willing to pass up free money, yet willingly risk having a stranger destroy our cell phone. You'll learn how you don't always "see" the full picture and why sometimes it's better to trust other people more and yourself a little less. Trust us - your mind will be blown.
