Decode the brain with National Geographic Channel’s Breakthrough series

Breakthrough - Decoding the brain
Breakthrough – Decoding the brain

Open your mind to the cutting-edge scientific discoveries that are set to transform our lives forever in National Geographic Channel’s Breakthrough on Sundays at 10pm.

In the first two episodes we marvelled as Peter Berg brought us the ground-breaking stories of pioneers protecting us from deadly pandemics, and we explored the wonder of superhuman technological advances with Paul Giamatti.

Now, Hollywood visionary Brett Ratner takes on one of the most complex objects in the known universe: the human brain.

After millennia of speculation about what goes on inside our heads, we now have the tools to explore its deepest reaches. These tools are leading to significant discoveries: breakthroughs that may shed light on the mystery of consciousness, free thousands from comas and afflictions such as epilepsy, and offer relief to people haunted by severe trauma. Prepare to be amazed.

Breakthrough continues with ‘Decoding The Brain’ on Sunday at 10pm on National Geographic Channel.

Episodes 1 and 2 are now available to watch on demand.
