Brain Games Follow the Leader

Brain Games Follow the Leader

This is a show about your brain and how easily you follow the leader. Everyone likes to think they're unique, but like it or not, much of your behaviour is influenced by you copying other people. We're going to mess with your mind as we put you through a series of games and experiments designed to show you why a yawn is so contagious, how imitation leads to flattery, and how to discover whether your brain is a born leader – or a born follower. Get ready to follow the leader on Brain Games.
