About the show
Have you ever wondered what exactly it is that makes us human? Discovery Channel invites you to find out in the new interactive series HEAD GAMES where both viewers and on-screen subjects are challenged with brain games, mind puzzles and social experiments.
Narrated by John Krasinski, the show delves into the inner workings of the deeply complex human brain. Through the design and execution of social experiments you will see how everyday people on the streets perceive, conform, and make moral choices when in real-life situations … and what the brain is actually doing to dictate behavior or react to uncomfortable, and, at times, confrontational, circumstances.
Is our perception of the world around us altered when we talk on a cell phone? Find out what happens when we send in a clown on a unicycle. Are we hard-wired to act a certain way in groups? See if a group of people can convince someone to see a snake in a tree when in fact no snake is actually there. Why do we feel compelled to keep promises? Watch what occurs when an actress at the gym asks a stranger to watch her computer, and then a thief attempts to steal it.
These experiments — enhanced by games, puzzles and expert analysis — will have you on the edge of your seat. Some of the outcomes might even leave you shocked!
You would be surprised how easy it is to turn your brain upside down and inside out.I would give you an example but not sure how appropriate that is given this is an open forum.
