Brain Games In It to Win It

Brain Games In It to Win It

Whether you're trying to get to the head of the class, earn the big promotion, or just find a parking spot – every day, you're competing. With yourself and with others. So what is it about the human brain that makes you want to win – sometimes at all costs? In this episode we'll explore your brain and competition through a series of, well… competitions! Each viewer will be assigned a team and play along as our Red and Blue teams duke it out in a head to head battle to determine the winner of "The Brain Games". Along the way you'll learn what drives you to compete, why some people may be born more competitive, and how a little healthy rivalry can help you climb the ladder of success. You've got to be in it to win it on Brain Games.
