Join the filmmakers at The History Channel as they take an illuminating voyage into the human brain on a mission to better understand the most complex machine in the universe. State of the art computer graphics help bring simple analogies and real-life case studies to vivid life while revealing the ongoing battle between instinct and reason and exploring the mysteries of memory and decision-making. Venture into the mind of a solder on the battlefield in order to discover how crucial decisions are made under the most extreme circumstances, learn how autistic people accomplish tasks that their normally-functioning counterparts would find impossible to achieve, and discover the answer to the mystery of what makes one person good, and another evil. Scientists have discovered more about the human brain than in the last five years than they did in the entire previous century, and in this documentary those remarkable recent discoveries come into sharp focus.
