Brain Games, National Geographic Channel

Brain Games is back for more mind-boggling fun, as Jason Silva reveals even more fascinating facts about the most powerful organ in the human body: our brains! For a fun science lesson, tune in on Wednesday 5 February at 8pm on National Geographic Channel.

Have you ever been desperate to win something, determined not to be beaten, or frustrated beyond belief when someone flicks dirt in your face as they race in front towards the finish line? Whether it’s a game of Monopoly, a promotion at work, or the high jump at school, we have all been in a position where we have wanted to be the best – the triumphant winner!

So what is it about the human brain that makes us so competitive? The best way to answer this question is to turn Brain Games into a full-on competition, with teams, battles and some good old competitive energy. In one corner we have the Red Team, chomping at the bit ready to face their rivals the Blue Team who occupy the other corner, punching the air as they prepare to do battle. Who will be crowned the winner of ‘The Brain Games’?

It’s time to learn what drives us to compete with one another, why some people are happy to sit out and others crave the opportunity to prove themselves superior. You’ve got to be in it to win it, so prepare yourselves for the ultimate battle in this week’s episode of Brain Games.

To get into the competitive spirit take a look at the below clip. Witness the ultimate rivalry between brother and sister – who will win in the gladiatorial Pictionary arena?
