The brain, locked in silence and darkness without direct access to the world, conjures the rich and beautiful world we all take for granted.

Neuroscientist David Eagleman explores the human brain in an epic series that reveals the ultimate story of us: why we feel and think the things we do. This ambitious project blends science with innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories, and addresses some big questions. By understanding the human brain, we can come close to understanding humanity.

In tonight’s segment, Dr. Eagleman explores the unconscious brain and reveals that everything—from our movements, to our decisions, to our behavior—is largely controlled and orchestrated by an invisible world of unconscious neural activity.

Wrap your mind around that, tonight at 7pm on WGBH World. More airings
