Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain

August 25, 2011

To us, it may seem that our conscious minds—the parts that we consider to be us—are the only thing running our brains as we make our way through our days. But what's happening behind the scenes? Today, neuroscientist David Eagleman joins the show to discuss the subconscious brain and just what it's capable of.

Guest: David Eagleman, Ph.D. (Neuroscientist, Departments of Neuroscience and Psychiatry, Baylor College of Medicine; Director of the Laboratory for Perception and Action; Founder and Director of Baylor College of Medicine's Inititative on Neuroscience and Law; author of Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain).
