The Brain with David Eagleman: A New TV Series Reveals the "Ultimate Story of Us"

"This is the story of how your life shapes your brain, and how your brain shapes your life," begins the just-released trailer for David Eagleman's new PBS series, The Brain with David Eagleman. On the show, Eagleman will explore the human brain in an epic series that reveals the ultimate story of us, why we feel and think the things we do. This ambitious project blends science with innovative visual effects and compelling personal stories, and addresses some big questions. By understanding the human brain, we can come close to understanding humanity.

The Brain with David Eagleman will air Wednesdays on PBS, starting on October 14, 2015.

Eagleman is a daring young neuroscientist whose TED Talk on creating new senses for humans drew a standing ovation and has reached over a million viewers. The author of Incognito and SUM, his new book Livewired will be published in 2016.

In his talks, Eagleman provides a new understanding of our brains—and ourselves. To book David Eagleman as the keynote speaker for your next event, contact The Lavin Agency speakers bureau.
