Secrets of the Brain

What Makes Me?
Season 1 Episode 2 SBS May 2, 2017

This episode explores the question of how the brain gives rise to our thoughts, emotions, our memories and personality. Philosophers and great thinkers have for millennia pondered the question of how physical stuff can give rise to mental processes. Last century, the new field of neuroscience joined the discussion, and Dr David Eagleman explains that, to a neuroscientist, the answers to such questions lie in a deep understanding of the brain.
