Brain games hosted by Keegan-Michael Key will test perceptions with a live audience

The nature of reality subjects our receptors and brains to varying interpretations. This fascinating premise continues in the new season of Brain Games.

Most of us rarely concern ourselves on how our brains process and interpret the data that it is fed, but the process behind it is incredibly important and fun to explore. Our interaction with the physical world in touch, sight, taste, and other perceptions is why we do most of all of what we do as people.

Our perceptions forms the full range of psychological and physiological states.

Most of these processes for perception, interpretation and reaction are subconscious, we barely notice or seem to care for them, but they are critical to our function.

Think about background tasks on your computer or mobile phone that are essential to its function but with which we never or rarely interact.

We rely on our judgement, but because we take the process behind it for-granted, interesting aspects that escape our observation becomes a subject of fascination when made apparent.

National Geographic's Brain Games hosted by Cara Santa Maria, a Neuroscientist and Clinical Psychologist, is programing designed to explore this fascinating world, which is the mind.

This season the show will be hosted by Keagan Michael Key in front of a live audience. Brain Games, although wholly scientific, features lots of magic tricks, fun banter and entertaining games for an audience of all ages. This season will feature a handful of celebrity guests like Dax Shepard, Kristen Bell and Jack Black, to name a few.

I have always been fascinated by the human mind and why we chose specific patterns and interpretations over others, and how that informs language and civilization.

Cara stressed how environmental pressures over time leads humans to form ideas and assumptions that aren't always necessarily correct but perhaps useful in the immediate or near term.

The objective of this show is to help us better understand ourselves and our world, our strengths and weakness, our biases and perhaps how and why we could overcome them.

Brain Games is going to be entertaining, and perhaps lessons learned from it might help us organize better and be more responsible citizens of the planet.

As iPhone sales sputter, Apple moves toward reinvention, again
Washington (AFP) Aug 4, 2019
With its latest financial results, Apple is showing it can move beyond the iPhone with gadgets and services that can help the California tech giant weather the slumping smartphone market.
