Your skinny best friend seems to eat twice as much as you but you're still overweight. Why? For decades, experts thought they had the answer - too many calories and not enough exercise. But the latest scientific research is turning those assumptions on their head. Differences in our individual biology - our genetics, hormones, or psychology - all play a crucial role. Now, five volunteers are going on diets tailored to their bodies and brains. They're just like you - normal people who spend their lives going up and down in weight. Combining rock-solid science with engaging personal stories, this experiment will revolutionise how we think about diet. Think long-term weight loss is impossible? Think again.

Susan Greenfield explains why she believes all aspects of human experience will eventually be explained in terms of the physical processes of the brain. The story of how we have gradually come to understand the astonishing complexity of the brain is revealed, from the earliest crude studies of the effects of brain injury, through to the latest insights from direct stimulation of specific areas in patients undergoing brain surgery whilst wide awake. Is it possible that our most spiritual feelings are merely the result of electrical activity in the temporal lobe?

In a lifetime, the average person will take 58 holidays, meet 1700 friends and acquaintances, read 2100 books and watch 5800 films. Without memory, these events would remain just that - a series of unrelated events or things. But through memory, these events become autobiographical, transforming them into events which happened to me. How Does Your Memory Work? is a documentary exploring the staggering complexity of memory, something most of us take for granted.

The illusion of vision. It feels as though we open our eyes and just see what's out there, but the more we learn about the brain's visual system, the further it seems this is from the truth. Patients, who can't see movement or recognise faces, reveal the tricks and short cuts the brain uses to construct an illusion of reality. Is the brain making up so much of what we think we're seeing that vision is really just dreaming with your eyes open?

The changes in the brain during the growth and development of a baby into an adult are explored. Susan Greenfield looks at how little of the fine structure of our brains is predetermined at birth, how the connections between nerves are constantly changing in response to what we encounter in the outside world. She explains her view that learning, memory and even the process of becoming a unique individual, should all be seen as a restless brain adapting minute by minute to the environment it encounters. Life is about how the world leaves its mark on us.

How do our brains generate consciousness? We take it for granted that the brain makes being alive feel the way it does, but there's no reason why it should. The brain is made of the same biological ingredients as the rest of the body, and yet somehow it manages to generate the indescribable phenomenon of consciousness.
