Researchers believe that, through the power of suggestion, placebos may unleash the power of our own subconscious minds to cure ourselves. Check out the final stage of our power of suggestion test, where we try to convince our subjects that a brain scanner can implant a number in their minds. I go deeper into accessory-assisted placebos by discussing sham acupuncture—and getting stuck with a few needles in the process.
But by examining the behavior of people whose brains are atypical due to stroke, injury, or being born that way , we can learn a lot about all our brains. Derek Paravicini, a blind, autistic pianist and musical savant, sits down with me at the keyboard and shows off his incredible range of musical styles.
Our nervous system is fundamentally electric. We move our arm by sending a signal to the muscles that control it. That means we can bypass our brains and use electricity to control our bodies, or use our minds to control other bodies.
Humans are the only Earthlings with complex language. But at what cost was that ability acquired? In this episode, I visit Tetsuro Matsuzawa to learn about his influential cognitive tradeoff hypothesis. With the help of Cecile Sarabian, Dr. Kyoto University Ph. A phenomenon known as Moral Licensing claims that when we do something good, we often subconsciously allow ourselves to then do something bad. In this episode, I take a look at whether those who donate money to charity become more likely to let a kid take the blame for a crime they know they committed.
Michael wrestles with two moral dilemmas in VR, designed by researchers Dr. Erick Ramirez and Dr. Scott LaBarge.
There are billion individual neurons in the human brain. Working together, they allow us to make sense of, and move through, the world around us. Scientists have built replicas of the human brain with computers, but no one has ever successfully made a brain out of humans. Normal people can become monsters, given the right situation. If I could live forever, should I? How does being reminded of our own mortality affect us psychologically?
In this episode I speak with mortician and death positivity activist Caitlin Doughty and visit a cryonics facility trying to extend human life indefinitely. Will I take them up on their offer, or will I choose to die? If we send messages to outer space, what should they say?

Stevens explores the effects of isolation and boredom on the brain by living three days in a constantly bright room with no stimuli from the outside world. Stevens explores the human instinct to conform and fall in with the crowd by conducting an experiment on groups of people in which everyone gives the wrong answer to questions except one who is not in on what is happening.
Can destroying things really make someone calm down? Stevens investigates by making people mad and then giving them stuff to smash up, and comparing them with those who are not given stuff to smash up. Stevens attempts to find out just where exactly the line between real and artificial minds really lies.
Stevens is joined by Moran Cerf , Dianna Cowern and Derek Muller to investigate whether we really have control over our own thoughts and actions, or is someone or something else calling the shots? Stevens investigates whether it is really our bodies or our minds that determine the way we interpret and feel sensations.
Stevens explores the effects of facial expressions on interactions with others and with yourself, and whether moods determine facial expressions or the other way around. Stevens investigates how well memories can be easily manipulated, and how this impacts people's lives. Stevens conducts a trolley problem experiment.
