Brain Games Motion Commotion

Brain Games Motion Commotion

Evolving in a world that was constantly moving, our brain had to develop a sophisticated sense of motion in order to survive. This episode of Brain Games stops to ask a deceptively simple question: what really is motion? We explore the science behind how our brain detects, interprets and reacts to motion, and you’ll see how easily this hard wiring can be fooled, for better and for worse.
