Brain Games Liar, Liar

Brain Games Liar, Liar

It's something you likely do every day. Whether it's telling a little white lie or a serious betrayal, your brain is built to know when tweaking the truth can be beneficial. Think about how many times you've told a lie to spare someone's feelings, or bent the truth to get out of plans. The truth is, we're all liars. In this episode, we'll explore why we lie, how often we lie, and what goes on in the brain that allows us to stretch the truth in the first place. As we put you through games and experiments, you'll discover how to pick out a fake smile and why it's actually easier for your brain to just tell the honest truth. If you pay attention, we'll even teach you a few tricks that can help you catch a liar. So stick around as we get to the truth about lying, on Brain Games!
