Video of the Day: Picking Your Brain

Ten Ton Hammer Video of the Day

They're not zombies, but they still like brains.


The human brain is a strange thing. It’s not unlike a computer in how it functions as we see, feel, touch, taste, and remember. After all, we are the sum of our memories. But could we save our memories like a game file. And more importantly, can they be altered in subtle ways to make us remember our memories differently? The answer may surprise some of you.

Vsauce lands our Video of the Day spot today with an intriguing video that’s all about the brain and a few strange experiments that have been tried in the past, some that offer an eerie look through the mind of something else.


While jamming electrodes into someone’s brain to get a clear picture is a bit excessive, how long do you think it will be before those scientific methods will improve to less invasive methods? Tell us what you think about it below.
