New TV Show Plays Head Games: DNews Nuggets

//

New TV Show Plays Head Games: A new show on Discovery Channel called “Head Games” premiers this Sunday at 10 p.m. and it seems to be pretty much what it promises. Social experiments are set up to test what people perceive as their realities, as opposed to what reality at the moment really is, and the show promises to look at the science behind these experiments — ie: what’s happening in the subjects’ brains. From the show’s website: “Is our perception of the world around us altered when we talk on a cell phone? Find out what happens when we send in a clown on a unicycle. Are we hard-wired to act a certain way in groups? See if a group of people can convince someone to see a snake in a tree when in fact no snake is actually there.” With puzzles and games for viewers to boot, sounds like a fun time! via Discovery Channel
