The Brain

The human brain is the most complicated device in the universe, with more connections than there are stars in the Milky Way. Thanks to advances in technology, we are finally unlocking the secrets of the brain and are now learning more about how this three-pound organ works than at any other period in history.

For the first time we’re actually seeing what goes on in the brain during sex, what makes some brains evil, and how we could have a sixth sense. We can explain why we behave the way we do. Science is helping experts to develop new methods and machines to boost our brain power for the 21st century, and revealing the untapped abilities that we all have inside our heads.
