Clip from Foolproof Equations For A Perfect Life  |  SBS  |  December 7, 2009

A look at the decision making process and the human brain. Can maths find the solutions to seemingly unrelated human conundrums? Sophisticated ratio formulas are put to use to predict the chances of individuals scoring a date or buying a pair of shoes. To what extent is our decision-making process manipulated by how choices are presented? Brain scans show the amygdala (emotional centre of the brain) lights up every time decisions need to be made. And what is premonition and is it really precognition, the ability to look into the future?
