    With memory, things are not always as they seem: Details go missing, recollections change, and sometimes our brains fill in the blanks and create false visual memories. Our experts are on a mission to find out where memories reside in the brain by examining every millimeter for clues. Brain Games investigates every piece of the memory puzzle, from how we recognize faces--even if they have been digitally distorted--to how we can move memories from short-term to long-term storage.moreless

Copperfield and a team of experts test, trick, and fool using an elegant form of attention control.moreless

But what happens when your senses get crossed?moreless
