Brain Power:The Science Behind Perception

Brain Power:The Science Behind Perception

Philip Stieg, Ph.D., Neurosurgeon-in-Chief of NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center, leads us in a lively discussion on the brain science behind perception vs. reality.

Have you ever noticed that your perceptions are different from reality? In fact, neuroscientists now say that much of what we perceive may simply be our own impressions of the external world, informed by our senses. In other words, reality is real, but what each of us sees is all in our head.
