Brain Biology

In this section we explore the biology of the human brain - what it looks and feels like, how it compares to other animals' brains, what the brain is made up of, what the different parts of the brain do and how we've come to know so much about the brain.

Brain Function

In this section we look at how the brain learns and remembers, how it manages doing more than one thing at once, how is pays attention and how it can be tricked.

The Social Brain

In this section we examine how we perceive faces and social cues, how and why we tend to see social cues even where there aren't any, people's emotions, why we imitate each-other, how we can tell what someone else is thinking and how magicians use psychology to trick us.
